When it comes to Gobbledygook, we believe in straight talk. Fearful, unsure, shy...these are a few of the words that clearly describe this adorable little tuxie. She is going to need a patient, understanding person who does not have expectations of cuddles, affection or even sightings at first. If that sounds like you, read on!

When Gobble first arrived at her foster home she spent her days hiding under the bed, only coming out at night when no one was around. Thanks to a security camera we quickly discovered this girl likes to play! Out she would come under the darkness of night and play with toys her foster mom left out for her.

Gobble's foster family knew she was petrified of people and did not rush her. Three months later, their patience paid off. Gobble began making appearances during the day! Not to be touched or have humans get too close, mind you. But, there she was, pretty and sweet, attempting to be a part of the family in her own way and in all her black and white glory! Which, by the way, looks healthy and beautiful now that she is safe and eating regularly. Speaking of eating, when it's mealtime Gobble speaks up these days with the cutest, tiny meows!

Gobble is still apprehensive around people and likes to sit or lay under the safety of the table when her humans are active. During the day, she will occasionally play with a toy, also known as progress!

Gobble doesn't seem to mind the noise of young kiddos and other pets now that she is a regular on the household scene. But, she would likely acclimate more quickly in a home with adults only. She seems to want to interact with the older cat in her foster home, who is perhaps set in her ways and hasn't reciprocated. So, Gobble might enjoy a home with a kitty buddy. She pretty much ignores the boxer who resides in her foster home. She might be okay in a household that includes a cat-friendly dog.

If you are looking to befriend a timid kitty who is afraid to trust, but clearly wants to, Gobble really could use your love. She doesn't want to be alone in the world. But, her time table for becoming comfortable is slower than many are willing to wait. If you're not in a rush, she would be ever so grateful for your time, your home and your heart. Contact us to meet this bashful baby!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
