Notes: "Livy" is very beautiful Burmese and that is why we kept her for breeding. But she had an unsuccessful litter, therefore decided to spay her. She is very sweet but unfortunately shy, and sensitive, something very unlike the Burmese breed. She likes the other Burmese in the house, and butts heads with them. She is a cat's cat. She's very smart too, but she's always in the background, shy and cowering. She is not gregarious with affection, although she may on occasion tentatively asks you to pet her. She was like that ever since she had a VERY high fever when she was 6 weeks old. She was fine before that, which is why we think the fever affected her. She has a tendency to shy away from you, especially men, and loud noises. So, she is now isolated in my den, where she can get more of my attention since I work from home, and she is more open to more pats and play. With tenaciousness and gentle focus, you can pet her and get her to relax into enjoying a good rub and tummy tickle. Livy likes to play with a feather or a laser light or long teaser. She's never been aggressive. It would take a patient person to take her. I feel sorry for her struggle to connect to people, and hope she can find comfort and more peace in a home that would love to take on her emotional challenges. Please email me with your interest. Thank you.
