Calamity Im sure would never find a home with anyone else. She goes after anyone who comes into my house except for me, Ari and my neighbor Joe.
The first 2 weeks I had her all she did was growl and hiss. Even when she was asking for attention! She would be rubbing all over me growling and hissing. But she has everything going against her. Shes not friendly with people she doesnt know, shes mostly black, shes a big female and shes not young the vet estimated her at about 2. She would never of been adopted. But now shes mine and Ari's. We love her even if no one else does. Adult cats usually stay in our rescue at least 1 year usually closer to 3-4 years. So who knows how long I will have Skye. Probably a while.
