Kieko was adopted into a home where there were several other cats. A very shy and fearful girl herself, this home was not a good fit for her personality or needs, so her previous owners decided to rehome her. Because of her behavior issues and history of shyness, she got her own room at Jane’s Place and is taking plenty of time to settle in to her new situation. She has been diagnosed as having heartworm disease.
We’ve had THE most exciting breakthrough with Kieko! This stalwart sweetie finally, for the first time, came down from her shelf while humans were in her room. We’re not sure what finally helped her turn the corner, but now she spends a lot more time chilling in her window bed and a lot less time hissing. Way to go, Kieko!
