Pet of the Week: Tip Toe, a wide-eyed tabby rescued from the trash who’s still finding her way in life

Meet Tip Toe, a short-haired tabby who has come a long way from the trash can where she was found at 4 weeks of age.

Now just over 1 year old, this cat is looking for a new home with her owner moving to a building that doesn’t allow pets, according to her friends at 4Paws Rescue Team:

Allow me to introduce myself….. My name is Tip Toe. I was found by a Good Samaritan in a trash can where somebody had left me to fend for myself at 4 weeks of age. Since then, I lived in a caring home but now my Mom is moving to a new place that unfortunately does not allow pets. Despite this new challenge, I look at life with optimism because I know that I will soon find my new forever home like many of my 4Paws fellow kitties.

I heard my caretakers call me loving and affectionate girl – I agree, I am definitely a warmhearted kitty! I enjoy climbing up and down my cat tree and find chasing the laser pointer a thrilling exercise. I still can’t figure out where that little red dot goes every time I grab it…… it always seems to slip out of my grasp…. Strange!

Like every growing cat, I have a healthy appetite and my favorite food is anything that is wet and sort of brothy; this way, I can stay healthy and hydrated. I am still not sure whether I would like a home with another gentle cat or where I am your one and only. It’s not that I don’t like other cats, but I am not totally sure how to interact with them. I would love it if you considered me to become your charming forever kitty, but you can also just foster me for a while, as I continue growing and learning about life.

Tip Toe was born Sep 2020. She is spayed and current on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and has been microchipped.
