Hi my name is Stephanie and I’m an independent rescuer in Staten Island.

I took in a 3 year old Scottish straight, female, spayed kitty back in May. The owners were losing their apartment and couldn’t take her. He told me she wasn’t a lap cat. Well, she a little more difficult than that.

Shonya was purchased from a private breeder in Brooklyn as a kitten.

After I take her, he tells me she has a difficult personality. I placed her in what I thought would be a permanent home.  However she doesn’t like to be petted and she hisses and swats.  Shonya has never bitten or made contact when swatting.

Shonya never lived with other animals - just two adults and one 7 year old. She does play and will eat and use the liter box.

The first placement returned her after 2 weeks saying they wanted a more affectionate cat. Shonya now has been with a foster on Long Island for the past 4 weeks. She hasn’t gotten worse, but hasn’t gotten better. She will hiss and swat when the foster mom goes in the room to feed or clean.

I don’t know what to do at this point. The current foster home is concerned because she’s afraid what will happen when she has company.

Shonya is a beautiful cat.
