GETTING TO KNOW HER
From the heart of a foster mom—Layla will captivate and capture every bit of compassion and intrigue you can muster. She will challenge you to give her reasons to trust and will reward you with her attention, snuggles on your lap and a bond that comes only from a Siamese. Her time in rescue having joined us via the CFA breed rescue program has been a reawakening of her personality and characteristics that are inherent with her Siamese background. Expect her to doubt you and test you. Layla is very intelligent. You may trick her once, but she will remember.
If you have ever loved and understood a Siamese, you get it. You are the person she needs. She will take time, routine and commitment and is worth every last ounce you have to give. There is no predicting how far she will come. Layla is gorgeous. Even as her point color changes due to the vitiligo, she looks more like a “Cookies and Cream” girl and what’s not to love about sweet and smooth? She will talk to you, and she hisses (A LOT). Her hisses mean nothing. It is how she learned to talk, and they make her foster mom chuckle every day.
Her weakness is Churu treats. They will help you to bond with her and they are perfect if she ever needs to be pilled. She also accommodates liquid medication in her food. How easy is that? She is learning that toys are actually fun! But nothing feels much better than having her settle into your lap. She always settles facing you. How wonderful to gaze into her blue eyes and for both of you to doze off in a sea of blue.
If you love the relationship and bond of a Siamese and are willing to invest a lifetime into her, please apply for her. She is currently living with 2 other Siamese, Bentley and Matt who have some similar emotional challenges. Layla does well with them especially Bentley and they would be a great pair or even a trio. She would do best with another cat to model and to snuggle with during quiet times.
