Swinging between sweetness and sympathy… here is Mozart, young neurological cat! We were hoping for a real adoption, but he has a leaky faucet that does not prevent him from purring.
Cats in desperate situations arrive at TA from shelters around Rome. Dreyfus is one of those cases. He comes from the sea, he’s FIV positive and with a rhinotracheitis that made him blind. He needed too much care for the small shelter in Anzio. Our doors at Torre Argentina are open for those who, like him, deserve an adoption at a distance!
Rubio appeared among the ruins in the spring of 2015.
He was a beautiful, healthy young cat, with golden almond eyes and a mild character, and we thought it would be adopted immediately.
It has not been so, the years have passed and Rubio is still among us.
He would need a little luck … maybe distance adoption could bring it to him!
As usual a beautiful free cat was rambling in the streets, looking for a mate … when he met a car! So Stealth was brought to us, and we could not save his mangled hind leg, but we can offer him good life and many cuddles. But beware… do not touch our Laura or he becomes a thug again!
Pioppo has only three legs, but he does not know it!
So he runs, he jumps and climbs walls as if he had five legs. And when he is tired of so much trouble, he offers belly, throat and all of himself to caresses.
Here we have a real web-star! Maggiolina is the cat with the most paparazzi in the entire “Area Sacra”: she is beautiful and sweet and she’s the Queen of the pedestrian area. With people, she is very cuddly, but with us volunteers she remains aloof and untouchable… how can we get her to accept us?
Zenone is a good and sweet cat with a serious vice: he hates dogs! He hates dogs so much that in his old colony he did not hesitate to attack every dog he saw, no matter the size or disposition. Unfortunately he found the dog that removed this crazed cat from his neck with a bite that broke his leg so badly that it had to be amputated. Now Zenone is a tripod of Torre Argentina!
As beautiful as she is unpredictable, Trilly has had many offers to adopt her retracted because of her overly nervous character. Here at Torre Argentina she prefers the male volunteers to the ladies. Who will convince her not to discriminate?
As the large scar on his back shows, Tarek is a not so young, handsome black cat that has had a hard life. But he is doing very well here at the shelter. He is such a charmer that during the times he decides to disappear into the Sacred Area ruins, all the volunteers immediately miss him and worry!
She is a tripod kitten, who loves the company of humans but never lets them actually touch her. Raptus often has overwhelming unrequited passions for another cat, usually an older man who refuses to return the feelings. Poor Raptus, will you ever learn that in love, the one that wins is the one that is pursued?
