My name is Artemis same as the Greek goddess of the hunt and animals. Wow! Cool...
I just got here from the Bastrop shelter with my sister Addison and we were scared out of our wits. We are getting a little more comfortable BUT my sister is doing better than I am.
Foster mom will be keeping us for a week or two more or until we are comfortable being handled and with people but we will be looking for our special forever home the whole time!
Let my foster mom know you might want me as your BFF and then come to meet me!!!
Wow, time flies when you're having fun. Foster Mom had to be away for 3 months and we did not get much attention while she was gone, but now we're having special "lessons" in liking people and we're doing quite well. I am STILL a big scaredy cat, but Foster Mom and Foster Sister are going to work really hard with me during Christmas vacation so we will be ready for our forever homes soon after. We are both very healthy and beautiful and we are the age shown below here on this page. We will make great BFF's, why not ask about us and take a chance - you won't be sorry!
UPDATE Jan 16: We are still VERY skittery and Mom is going to order some Jackson Galaxy flower remedies and we will be moved into large cages so Mom and Sis can work directly with each one of us. Here's hoping - -
I changed status to sponsorship so people would not be upset that these two are "not ready" for prime time. IF you are truly interested and have experience with fearful kitties, please let me know. Thanks! Rae
UPDATE June 2020: Sometimes we take in kitties that have been psychologically so traumatized that they never accept humans and do not allow physical contact with them. Such is Artemis' story. She came in with her sister Addison and both were terrified. I will never know what was done to them but after five years she is still extremely shy. Now during Covid-19 we are spending additional time at home and Artemis is living in the main house where she can get used to the rhythms of a household AND hopefully will come around. For now please note her status above is Sponsorship only. If she does progress to the point I feel she's adoptable I will change her status. Thanks for your interest. You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions about possibly adopting.
Special Needs: Artemis needs an experience adopter that is patient. ASR can do a foster-to-adopt for this girl to insure that the transition goes well. She continues to be semi-feral.
Artemis' sister, Addison (available for adoption) can also be seen on our website.
