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.
Kieko, while still not interested in pets or playtime, has been coming down a lot when staff goes in with treats. She’ll stretch, give us blinks, turn her back to us, explore, scratch her posts, and use her box – all in our presence. Those are all great signs that she trusts us more and more!
