Hi, I'm Masala!
I have been in WAG’s care for several weeks now, and am enjoying visits from the staff and my regular volunteer friends. I am coming out of my shell and feeling a lot more comfortable in my new surroundings. I really hope that my forever home finds me soon!
I am shy and am much slower to initiate cuddles or play than my room mate Chai. I am quite independent and happy to observe my environment from my favorite high spots and window perches. Once I'm your friend I'll happily sit in your lap, but I need a family that will be okay with me hiding when company comes over. I might even hiss or spat if I feel like my space isn't being respected.
The love, warmth, food, water, and cozy beds they have given me make me feel happy and I am becoming much braver. There’s been a lot of changes in my life recently and I would very much like to be adopted by people who understand that time and patience, combined with love and respect is very important for me.
My Purrrfect Match
- will be ready for a 15+ year commitment!
- have lots of patience while I learn to feel comfortable with my new family.
- someone who understands that I might not want to cuddle or be touched all the time.
- will provide lots of enrichment, scratching towers, toys, catio etc.
- will keep my health in mind and take me into the vet for yearly checkups.
- understand that I am still developing and my personality may change over time!
- will keep me safe and happy, forever.
I came into WAG with Chai and Earl, we were housed in a hoarding situation from a nearby town. Thankfully we found a temporary home at WAG where we can all learn to enjoy humans more and gain confidence in our new surroundings.
If you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to WAG. Our care will be extended and it takes lots of resources and time to help under socialized animals become confident.
