Tuxie urgently needs a foster home

Why is fostering needed?

I need to foster my cat, Tuxie. I’m losing my housing and need a temporary home for her by the end of April. I’m hoping to be in another pet friendly home by the end of June.

How long is fostering needed for?

A few months

Other notes

Tuxie is my little darling. She was a slightly feral street cat when I rescued her but has come a long way since then. It took her awhile to trust me but now i can hold her, have her relax in my arms, stroke her fur and scratch her ears. She is still learning to trust so must be handled carefully because she will strike out if feeling threatened or scared. So—she will need someone who is patient and kind and will give her time to come out of her shell. I love this little girl and am amazed and proud of the strides she has made. She’s been living with three other cats and tolerates them but sometimes acts out if she’s eating or feels threatened by them (sometimes she’ll walk away from her food bowl if the other cats get too close). She currently lives on my back porch but I have been working with her to transition her to an indoor cat. I’m very anxious to find her a temporary home where she will feel happy and safe. I’m concerned that she will try to find her way back home, as displaced animals often do, so if there’s anyway to contain her, that would be great. My landlord at my current residence hates cats and would call animal control if she showed back up on the property. If she does get away from you I would ask that you call me so that I can go over to retrieve her. I would be happy to provide food and treats and would send her with a couple of her beds so she would have something there that was comforting and familiar. She is healthy and current with her vaccinations. Are you someone patient and kind who would be willing to care for my little girl for a couple of months until I get settled in a new place?

Tuxie is my little darling. She was a slightly feral street cat when I rescued her a few years ago. It took some time and patience but she has come a long way and now has totally imprinted on me as her mommy. She loves to be petted , have her ears scratched and will even let me hold her now. Tuxie is still learning to trust so when handling her she might strike out if she feels threatened or scared. She needs someone patient and kind who will give her time to come out of her shell. She has been living with three other cats and tolerates them, but sometimes gets a little defensive around them—especially when she’s eating. She’s in good health and is current with her vaccinations. I love this kitty so much and want her to have a happy, safe life. She’s been living on my back porch but I’ve been working with her to make her an indoor out door cat. I would be happy to provide food and treats for her (she is crazy for cat nip!). I would also send her with a couple of her favorite beds so she might be comforted by something from home. She’s not exactly snuggly but I’m hoping in time, with trust and loving care, she will be. I’m worried that she might want to find her way back home-as displaced animals often do. I know she would be in danger if she made her way back to the place I’ll be vacating because my landlord here hates cats and I’m sure will call animal control if she comes back to the property. If she disappears, I would ask that you call me so I could go back and find her. She means the world to me. Are you someone patient and kind who could help my little girl?
