Meet Tippy, 6 years old Russian Blue
Elk Grove Village, IL
Hi! I was named Tippy because of the white tip on my tail. It looks like I've dipped it in paint and am ready to do a little artwork. The only artwork I really do with my tail fascinates everyone who sees it. It's a dual project, 1 that I do with my partner. You see, Carolina and I are soul mates. We met at our foster home. Talk about love at 1st sight! She's my honey-bun, my sunshine, my comforter on cold nights and when I'm feeling the need to snuggle. We like to hang around together, never far apart even when we're socializing with the other foster cats. When we get back together we dance a slow one, then entwine our tails in the shape of a heart. Only those truly in love, and truly talented, can do this. It's our symbol of our connection with each other. I came to Almost Home Foundation from a home where I was terribly mistreated. If I could talk human, I'd explain to you how my eye was injured. It looks strange, at least not normal, but I see fine and have no problem with it. It's just a scar that reminds me when I look in a mirror of those bad times in my past. I get nervous of people, I don't want to, but after what I went through it's just 1 of those things. I'm sorry, I try really hard, but I get the urge to avoid being touched. I need to feel safe, secure, loved. I'm sure if I could have that, I'd be able to relax and open up to people more. I'm looking for a forever home that would accept me as I am, less than perfect, and willing to give me the patience and love to overcome my past. I really want to give love back! And I just can't go anywhere without my Carolina, we're just meant to be together. Our tails tell the tale.
