Viveka came to Abbey Cats from a rescue group up north.
Her kittens (who were only a few weeks old) were on their way to being drowned by the person whose land they were all living on.
A neighbour intercepted them and handed the kittens (without their mother) over to the rescue group.
That rescue group went back to try and find the frantic mother and were finally able to trap her.
Due to a miscommunication, instead of immediately reuniting Viveka with her kittens, she was sent straight to the vet and spayed.
This was so traumatizing to Viveka that to this day she's an extremely shy and nervous cat.
She needs someone who understands that, and who is willing to be patient with her.
She enjoys sitting at the window and watching the world go by, but will quickly go back into hiding if disturbed.
We are not sure if having another cat to keep her company would be beneficial to Viveka.
It might draw her out, but it might also make her even more overwhelmed.
She didn't take any interest in her kittens until recently (she will clean them now if they go to her).
Perhaps once the kittens have been adopted she'll be more adventurous
Viveka will need to go to a quiet home where she is allowed to blossom in her own time and on her own terms.
