Tessa on Tuesday - Cat of the Month

Hi Everybuddy!  I'm Tessa, and guess what?  I'm the "PAWS Cat of the Month!"  That means that my adoption fee is just $75 in January!  Oh, and whoever adopts me gets a new best friend AND a special goody bag, too!  Pretty good deal, huh?


Many people are surprised to learn that I've been waiting for a forever home at PAWS for a long time.  Especially when my closest volunteer friends explain that I am a sweet and dainty ladycat who loves catnip, sitting on laps, being pet, and playing with the laser cat toy.  And that I am graceful, and such an amazing jumper that it almost appears that I can fly!  So why am I still here, you ask?  Well, I'm sort of shy and reserved around new people, so potential adopters don't get to see just how special I am.  I just KNOW that if somebuddy gives me a chance, we will be the bestest of friends.

Here's me on my friend Tracey's lap :)
I am about three years old, spayed, microchipped, current on all my vaccinations, and I've tested negative for FeLV and FIV.  I do have a food allergy, but this is something that is easily managed by a prescription food.  I do seem to tolerate non-dominant, easygoing kitties, but would probably do best as an only cat in a quieter home.

Me being silly!
Thanks for checking me out here.  Come meet me in PURRson at PAWS, okay?

Love,

Tessa

She's a great cat! It's a mystery why she's been overlooked by adopters. I sure hope this is her month to find the perfect forever family.
There's a cute video that I took in May of 2011 on youtube- http://youtu.be/plpsIzwvqaQ

We can't understand how anyone could just pass Tessa by - her tummy fur is quite similar to Hannah's!
We are purring double purrs for her furever home.

Fur Everywhere said...

You are a beautiful kitty, Tessa! I always try to make it a point to go visit the "shy room" at Cat Care when I visit. Those babies are more reserved around new peoples. I think they can tell I'm a cat person, though, because they always come out of hiding and say hi to me :)

I hope you find a loving human soon. Any human will be lucky to have you as their baby! :)

Cindy Adkins said...

Congratulations, Tessa, on being Cat of the Month! You are so beautiful! I hope you find a loving, purrfect home soon!

Oui Oui said...

Oh, Tessa, we are so sorry you have had to wait for so long. We know the people there are nice, but a family of your own! Next time we adopt, we are going to ask for the kitty who needs a home the most. We are purring that this really is your month and you will be going home soon. Who could resist your sweet kissy spot? Purrs to all our dear furiends up there!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

We are so grateful that the wonderful PAWS people are keeping you all safe and warm and cozy till the purrfect Human comes to adopt you, sweet girl!

CCL Wendy said...

Definitely, those PURRSons can't see what's they're missing, Tessa! You certainly are a beauty with a PURRSonality to match, from the sounds of it.

We hope you will meet your furever family very soon.

Thanks for dropping by with birthday wishes for Dante.

All good wishes to sweet Tessa in her quest for a loving home. She will make someone very happy.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Tessa, you are lovely and should charm some lucky human into being adopted by you.

Unknown said...

OhTessa, how beautiful you are. I would adopt you in a minute if I lived in CT and didn't already have 8 kitties. I was glad to read about PAWS. We have two no-kill shelters in our area, Barn Cat Buddies and Angels of Asissi. Three of my kitties came from BCB. Keep up the good work. I look forward to visiting again.
