Hello! My name is
Winona came to GEARS from Sheltered Paws and, after months of living in a foster home, she’s ready to find her furever home!
Hello there! My name is Winona, but sometimes my foster mom calls me Nonie🥰.
I can be a bit of a scaredy cat – especially when it comes to new environments and loud whooshing sounds. If you adopt me, I will probably hide under the bed for a while until I feel ready to come out, but gradually I will spend more time on the couch and on the chair next to you as I learn to feel safe in my new home!
I have a loud voice, and I’ll remind you if it’s meal time. I like to chase my own tail, paw at spider plants, and wind up to pounce on a toy from across the room (I need to have the element of surprise). I don’t like to be picked up, and I might seem “hard to get” at first, but I love to receive scratches around my ears, chin and butt. I also love a good scratching post. I will “make biscuits” with my paws and purr very loudly. If you feed me treats, you will get in my good books quickly.
I am used to a quiet apartment and would do best in a home where I am able to have my space. Aside from my short bouts of zoomies (after meal times), I like to sleep most of the day. I will come sleep at your feet at night🥰.
I’m really hoping to find a home that can give me all the time and love I deserve and where I can be part of the family! Is that you?
Love, Winona 💓
