Hi, my name is Tabitha, and I guess it’s my turn to introduce myself. If you’ve already read my house-sister Akasha’s introduction, you will see that we are very similar. We are both between 7 and 9 years old, both tiny (although I weigh a half pound more than she does at 8 pounds even), and both gray. The most noticeable difference is that while she is a domestic shorthair, I am a domestic longhair. In the winter I grow a ruff around my neck, which makes some people say that I look like a tiny Maine Coon. Personally, I think being a longhair makes me prettier than Akasha, but I suppose that everyone has different tastes, so that may just be me being catty .

Other than our hair length, I would say that the biggest difference between us is that I am even more shy than Akasha is. I’m afraid that it takes me a bit to relax and warm up to people. But once I do, I’m just as loving! Right now though, I’m feeling terrified. All this change has been really hard on

me, and I’m staying as far back in my kennel cubby as I possibly can. Thank goodness that it’s soft and cozy!

Like Akasha, I would love to find a forever home where I can settle into another family and learn to trust and love again. And, once again like her, since I lived in a household of seven cats, I’d be fine with other cats, but am also not sure about dogs or children. I do need to mention that even though Akasha and I come from the same home, we are not bonded and do not need to go as a pair.

Maybe once I’m feeling a bit more settled and not so shy, I’ll come back and tell you more about myself. But in the meantime, I’d be grateful if you would come down to meet me so we can see if we might be a good fit for each other. You’ll have to forgive me if I’m still frightened and shy though; that’s really not who I am! Please call the Safe Place phone at (719) 359-0201 or email them at to set up an appointment or just drop by between on a Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday afternoon between 2:00 and 6:00. There’ll be someone there who will be happy to introduce us!
