Description: Izzy has the saddest-looking eyes, but they can also gravitate toward an angry look. Izzy means no harm. She’s just confused. She can’t control her looks but she can control her actions. At first, she would run away and hide from people and did not want to be petted. That’s when the angry look came out. Eventually, she accepted being petted. And that’s when her eyes went from angry look back to their natural sad look. Oh, my. Izzy likes a gentle stroke across her body, but she doesn’t like her head or face messed with. Now that we know how she likes it, it’s much easier to meet her love needs. Sometimes body language can be deceiving. Izzy is very much accepting of pets and rubs now. She purrs in response and raises her butt in the air. Picking her up has not been tested but we doubt she would like that. Being petted in place would be her preference. As time goes on, Izzy will get more comfortable with people and have less apprehension. Being raised in a colony group of kitties, she may not have received the bulk of the attention, but she was socialized. Izzy is a beautiful tabby girl who needs a patient adopter. She may not be the type of kitty that comes running to you when you come thru the door but can be an affectionate companion if you devote time and love to her.
