I was introduced to Tiaz as a cat who may be almost as big as Rita was when she came in last summer.
Tia arrived at the sanctuary last week, brought in by people who said she was a stray they’d been feeding but couldn’t anymore.
I’m suspecting she must have had some bad matts in her fur that needed taking care of when RAPS took over her care, as when she stood up from her bed to get a little further away from my scary big camera and the accompanying flash, this is the view I was treated to:
Even without having a camera pointed at her, Tiaz is still pretty uncertain about her new surroundings and the humans that come with them. If I approached very quietly and gently, she did let me present a finger tip for a brief sniff. But there ended the interview.
For now, anyway.
