This is Rapunzel. She was born in the year 2017 (the fall approximately). She is 5.5 years old, will be 6 in the fall of 2023. She was spayed at the age of 6 months approximately. Rapunzel was rescued, along with a male and female sibling (one of whom, Kitbull (neutered at 6 months' old), I am looking to rehome).
Rapunzel is a affectionate to me (only to me). Out of my 4 cats (2 of whom I am looking to rehome), Rapunzel is very fearful and does not like when I pick her up. She comes to me if I call her (most times, except feeding time), and will cuddle near me and even head bump me, but if I pick her up she is fearful and will claw and scratch to get away. She, l(ike her brother Kitbull) is very afraid when others visit my home. I have not had a lot of traffic to my home, only visitors to fix things and occasional cat sitters, and she will also hide. She loves to play with her toy (pictured) . Rapunzel will need to go to a patient and loving home, preferably a person who is familiar with rescue and socializing fearful cats. I would like very much for her to have a patient caretaker that has more time to spend with her, perhaps there are other people in the home to have her come out of her shyness and fear. She does well with her brother Kitbull out of my 4 cats. She does not like my older cat Patrick. She is closest to Kitbull, and they groom each other, but sometimes can disagree the next minute and get upset with each other, but always forgive. I feed her mostly wet food with an occasional dry food at times. She has a healthy appetite. Sometime she will cough up a hairball. I rescued Rapunzel, along with her brother and sister, in 2017 in Anderson, S.C. in November of 2017. She was a young kitten then, very scared, almost feral-like, lived in a stressful area, high-traffic area, a dangerous spot off an exit, I believe Exit 27 off I-85 in Anderson, right along the entrance of 27. When I saw her and her siblings it was very imperative that I try to rescue them. I did so with traps (I only had one trap, so it took me three different trips to catch all three). I ended up not going back to Anderson (from Greenville where I live) because of the distance and my work responsibilities then. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the others. He is strictly, as you might imagine, an indoor cat. I give him mostly wet to eat, with occasional dry food. She is very affectionate, will show her belly to me, will vibrate her tail, is very sensitive as well. She will hug me with her body if I am standing or sitting, or come by my leg. However, again, if I go to pick her up, she doesn't like that, she will claw and scratch to get away. She is not a lap cat, but likes to come close to me, behind my head at times, will come when I call, but at times will run also if I am standing too close. If the doorbell rings or a visitor knocks on the door, she will run and hide herself. She is not super socialized. I cannot stress this enough. I would love for her to go to a patient and loving home with a person who is very familiar and experienced with cats that have come from the streets and had stress early on, who are fearful, someone who has good patience and knows how to socialize better. This would be a best fit for her (and her brother). A home with dogs would probably not work well, since she has not been introduced to dogs inside my home, though hears their barks outside. *And if there were a dog in the home, it would have to be a very submissive and small dog.
I would like very much if Rapunzel could be rehomed with her brother, because there will be stress and fear when she leaves my home that she has known for 5.5 years. And while she has been fearful at times here when people occasionally visit, this is the only home she knows, so there will be a big period of adjustment.
This has not been an easy decision for me. Initially, I had them up on Facebook when I first rescued them (I am not on FB anymore), but I had not received any interest for adoption from anyone. The reason for a rehome after all of these years is I am overwhelmed in other areas of my life, family and personal, work, and I want her and her brother to have a better life and not be fearful, and grow in a patient environment.
In the best of all worlds, I would love to rehome them to family or friends, but none have shown the interest. I thank you for reading Rapunzel's bio and background. I hope you will reach out with any questions or more insight about her that you may need. Thank you!
