Lizzie came to the sanctuary at the age of about seven, having been surrendered for peeing.
The adjustment was not an easy one for her, and it took about a year before she’d let people at RAPS touch her. She was hyper anxious and would scream if she so much as saw a hand coming toward her. Leslie says people used to shout out to anyone at the sanctuary who might have heard the noise that nobody was hurting anybody.
Lizzie’s mellowed out a lot since then, turning into a very friendly cat. Friendly with humans, anyway. She’s not a fan of the other cats and has no problem telling them so.
