Violet is approximately 4 yrs old (as of Feb 2012). She was originally trapped as a young feral, but never properly socialized. Now that she's here at Passion 4 Paws, she has been making good progress. She has recently started allowing one of our volunteers to pet her! Violet is not mean or wild. She is TIMID. However, if you have the patience to allow her adjust to your home, and don't expect her to become a lap cat overnight (maybe never). We believe that Violet can become a happy, healthy, and loving family member, if given the time to adjust at her pace. Violet loves other cats, and would do best in a home with at least one other friendly cat.
