Hi! My name is Fiona
I am Domestic Mediumhair from North East, PA
Nicknames: FiFi, Fee, Little. Her full name is Fiona Elliot, named after a friend in Scotland named Fiona Elliot, also a lover of tuxedo cats and the inspiration for my wanting one. I saw all the adorable pictures on her Facebook profile of her two beautiful Tuxedos and just fell in love with them.
Age: 1 year old
Coat: long haired
Education: Fiona has come so far from the frightened, abused kitten that we brought home from the shelter-every time she approaches us for a petting is monumental; the first time she jumped up onto our bed with us was monumental. Watching her come out of her shell and trust humans again has warmed my heart over and over again.
My favorite tricks and treats are: Well, it's not a trick-and it's rather sad-but her favorite thing to do is to knead her siblings and root for milk-I did use milk replacer when we brought her home at 8 wks' age, but she wasn't very interested-I think that ship had already sailed. But the action of nursing still lingers. and Fiona will eat anything! She took to the raw meat from day one, never having had it before-she dug in like a champ. She eats whatever is put in front of her and then polishes off her siblings' leftovers. This little girl is growing so fast!
Where I hang out: In a kitty bed in the computer hutch behind the monitor. All my cats hung out there as kittens and occasionally Lily can be found there-but this is really now Fiona's spot. She gets back there and kneads the soft fabric and rubs her mouth back and forth on it, purring the whole time. it's her little 'thing' and she likes to have privacy when doing it, although if i'm on the computer at the time, this is usually ok with her, as long as I don't reach out and pet her-when "nursing", she likes to be left alone.
My favorite grubs: Raw chicken, gizzards, sardines, herring, chicken livers, occasional raw, meaty bones-and she loves Nutro max canned food mixed with warm water and sprinkled with Innova dry food on top. All grain free and real MEAT. She loves Dick Van Patten's Platefulls too as a snack.
My pet peeves: Fiona hates being approached too quickly-she will run away. She is not keen on strangers, either. She accepts grooming much better than her siblings, though.
What I love about my owners: Fifi loves that she is warm, safe, fed, loved, has cat company, toys, and is INDOORS!
My cat hobbies: Hide under my bed--it is her little sanctuary. She also LOVES eating! She eats like it's her job, probably from being on the streets, motherless.
Pet motto: Cats are like tattoos-one just leads to another!
