- In Memory
A note from Talullah’s foster mom. Incredibly friendly -- LOVES and cherishes human attention. She reaches out for me when I walk by, and when I am finished petting her she grabs my hand to keep it near her. She would love nothing more than a lap to sit on, a quiet hand to pet her, and even a place to sleep on your bed.
She is perfectly good-mannered, low-key and quiet. I've never seen her play with a toy except once. I got her a little catnip mouse which she actually batted around a bit.
She is in good health, maybe a little chunky. That could be the dry food.
I think she would do well with other cats if they left her alone or didn't challenge her. One of my year-old kittens is very mellow and I've seen them sitting close together, so I know she doesn't mind the company. I even think she'd be okay with a dog, if it were the sort that ignored her.
She is also incredibly SHY at first. She was already "returned" once because she didn't interact in the first four days with her new humans. If Talullah comes in to your home, please give her a very quiet place to hide, for the first few WEEKS. I promise, if she feels safe, little by little she will peep out. But be forewarned, this is not a cat who will crawl into your lap or wind through your legs until she feels completely at ease.

Putnam Felines, Inc. is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization working to help stray and feral cats in Putnam County. We believe that the problem of cat over-population will not be solved by adoption alone. Shelters are full and private adoption groups are unable to keep up with the demand for their services. We are practicing Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) because we believe it is the most effective and humane way of controlling feral and stray cat populations and protecting wildlife.
We believe our mission is best served by having all of our cats spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. We also believe that all pet cats should be INDOOR ONLY and we turn down prospective adopters who do not agree with us. Altered animals do not contribute to the over-population problem and indoor cats do not harm the environment.
