About Calypso

Adoption Fee: $100

Calypso has had a rough start to life. She was dumped along with her 6 four week old kittens outside a rural shelter in Paris, TX. Luckily she was a very good mama and made sure they stayed fed. Now that her kittens are about 13 weeks old, Calypso is beyond ready be away from her kids and live her new life in a forever home. She is almost a year old and just wants your love and attention. She gets along with other cats and kittens and even likes nice dogs. Some times she can get a little spooked by certain motions and sounds but that is probably do to her being put outside at a very young age and possibly do to her time in the shelter. I truly believe this is something she will grow out of once she is in a home that she can roam freely. She would love a home with a kitty companion or gentle doggie for when her owner(s) is not home. She will also need a few scratching post.

    Having only 3 legs does not slow Aileen down at all!  Aileen was less than a year old with kittens herself when I trapped her, her kittens , her mom and her moms kittens through the Trap, Neuter and Release program (TNR)  Aileen was still a kitten herself and very close to her mom , who was very feral and was released. But Aileen was only semi feral and had an old break in her leg requiring amputation. We made the choice to get her mangled leg amputated and keep her indoors! Aileen quickly adapted to living indoors , but was obviously missing her mom, so her foster mom put her in a room with Zorro, an 8 year old male cat that was mourning the loss of his sister , his best friend, who he had been with his entire life. Zorro and his sister were left at a shelter. His sister was adopted. Zorro completely shut down while sitting in the shelter alone. Zorro did ok in his foster home, but he cried for his sister daily for over six months ! Aileen and Zorro made friends quick. Aileen runs to him whenever she is scared or lonely! Zorro stopped crying for his sister the day Aileen moved in with him. They are always side by side looking out the window watching birds or cuddled up together sleeping. They never venture out of the room they are in because 2 of the older male cats challenge Zorro. He is older and big! But he is lover, not a fighter!  They are so cute together and deserve an entire home to feel safe an get more exercise. I call them the “Odd couple”! They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.   Zorro fully opened up when Aileen moved in with him. He now enjoys being pet and brushed. He even runs to his foster mom with a meow for hello!  Aileen is still learning to let her foster mom just walk up to her to pet . However, she waits patiently by her door when she knows her foster mom will soon come in and play with her favorite feather wand toy. Her foster mom has taught her to wink if she wants to play! Sometimes it more of a blink, but she tries! She will allow petting if she is next to Zorro. Both will need time to adjust to a new home and are loving, sweet, and playful. The other foster kittens like to spend time in the room with Zorro and Aileen. Some sit and cry at their door until I let them in. Both big Zorro and Aileen like to sit with and watch the kittens.   Please inquire to learn more about this pair! show less
