Hi, I’m Callie Jane! I spent the first several months of my life living outside with a feral colony, fending for myself and eating scraps of food from a nearby restaurant dumpster. A kind lady was doing TNR (trap-neuter-release) in the area, and I ended up in one of her traps because I was so hungry and there was food inside. Needless to say, I was terrified to be stuck in there, but she quickly took me to the doctor to be “fixed” before going back to my feral family. Only a few days after my spay surgery, I let the lady pet me so she decided she could never put me back outside to be hungry again. I was NOT happy to be in the cage while I recovered from surgery, so I cried and knocked everything over in there, making a huge mess. The lady then named me Calamity “Callie” Jane since I was so feisty.
Once I got out of the cage and into my own safe room, I calmed waaay down and began to soak up the love! I may be small but I have a big purr motor and I like to run it non-stop. Because I grew up thinking that people were scary, I am still timid and don’t like sudden movements. Once you pet me though, I can’t get enough. I do like to be around other cats, but sometimes I prefer to observe them from the window sill. I bonded with my siblings while in a foster home, and I would be ok with any other friendly, laid-back cat. It might be best for me to be adopted with a friend, so we can adjust to a new home together. I’m a sweet, quiet girl, though I am intrigued by feather toys. I’ll play with you sometimes, but mainly I just want to be admired for the beauty that I am.
Because I’m still adjusting to big people, I’d prefer to have a home without any tiny people (or dogs – they’re loud and scary). Please come meet me soon. Once you gaze into my pale blue eyes, I know you’ll want to bring me home.
