zontzo and her mom Shylee came to our shelter together five years ago. They were both very sick and the little one would not leave her mom's side...In the brief period her mother escaped from the shelter, seeing herself alone and losing the only being she loved, Tzontzo became very scared and sad. Any attempt to make it better for her resulted in her hiding even more... Sometimes, we'd find her in a basket or a cupboard, all curled up and in a defensive position, head down... We cannot even imagine what could have happened to her and her mom before coming to us...

It got better in time, but Tzontzo is a shy and scared kitty to this day. She doesn't come to us although she allows us to get near her, especially when she is sitting relaxed in a basket. Her first reaction to human touch is to tremble, but then she slowly relaxes and enjoys soft cuddling. Most of the time, she's just sleeping or sitting on a chair, a corner, a radiator... It's heartbreaking to see her still blinking fast when we approach, even after 5 years! That's a very long time in a shelter...

Her mom passed away almost two years ago and now, she doesn't even have her to comfort. She has only us, our hearts and souls, and she accepts our love if we are patient enough and not making sudden movements. She doesn't run, she just curls up even more... We don't know if it's the many cats, if it's the life before coming to us or if it's us... But Tzontzo would deserve a real chance, understanding and love coming from a family who would at least try to imagine the life she's had... Be careful though: it might take weeks, months or even more than that. And cats like Tzontzo have only one chance to open up: because if her new family abandoned her, she would never recover and live her entire life like she is now...

It takes patience to prove to Tzontzo that you mean no harm, but once you've managed, you'll hear her purr sweetly and you'll see just how much she enjoys cuddling.

This much :D - see video

And who knows what follows if she is really HOME...

Even is you cannot take Tzontzo home, you can virtually adopt her! It's easy, all you have to do is fill in a form and specify the amount you want to sponsor her with - Tzontzo, or other shy or wild cat we have, as their chances of adoption are almost zero...
