Sambucca is an example of royalty; she is so beautiful and is looking for her very own Human.
She is a long haired, very soft tortiseshell with the fluffiest of tails.
Sambucca was found in a frozen back yard and taken to a shelter.
She is currently being fostered in a single person home.
Her foster has told us that she hid under a bed for 8 weeks.
Sambucca ventured out at night to get food.
We don't know what happened in her past but she was terrified.
After 8 weeks and lots of treats, Sambucca was gently persuaded to get closer to the foster.
Sambucca might do that again for a while when she goes to her forever home.
She is quiet, sweet natured and she doesn't bite; she is not up to playing (yet) but she has been blossoming under the foster's care.
Sambucca has graduated to sleeping on the bed she had slept under for so long.
One day the foster said to the cat, "come on join me in bed", I'd like us to sleep side by side".
And that is exactly what she did.
A week later her foster mom would come home and Sambucca would come out with a 'meow' and trot towards the bed.
She would stop a few times to make sure the foster was following.
Sambucca would often get to the bed first and they would both settle down comfortably.
Sambucca still skitters away sometimes but not very far.
If there is a knock on the front door she takes off and will reappear shortly after the knocker or the visitor has left.
She's not much of a jumper and so she has never been on a table top or a side board.
She has sat on her foster's bed staring intensely through a small stained glass window at a couple of pigeons on the ledge.... she would love to have her own window to see birds and squirrels.
Sambucca requires a quiet home with no other animals and the company of only one person (2 possibly)
