Pets of the Week - March 19, 2009

Taylor is a 2 year old Oriental Shorthair. She will be totally vetted (vaccines and sterilization) prior to adoption. Taylor was found at Animal Control, where she had been taken after being picked up as a "stray" on a busy highway. She was very thin and very dirty, indicating that she may have been "on her own" for awhile. Taylor was clearly very frightened and withdrawn, so she was taken to a foster home so that she could settle down and become more secure before going into the CCHS shelter. Taylor has a very sweet, affectionate side, but she can also turn very quickly and becomes extremely defensive. This leads us to believe that Taylor may have suffered some abusive treatment and she only knows to strike out when she believes that she is being threatened. Even though she remains a little "spooked" around strangers, she has managed to fall in love with her foster mom and has bonded very quickly. Taylor has plenty of potential to be a great pet, but it will need to be in a quiet, adult-only home; with people who understand that she may have some trust issues at first. We firmly believe that Taylor will settle down in the right setting. The shelter is no place for a cat like Taylor, so if you think you might be the right "fit" for such a special girl, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
