When Chianti first arrived at Whiskers with three kittens in tow, she was as spicy as her vino namesake. The thought was that, once her babies were weaned and Chianti was spayed, she would be returned to her outdoor home. But in just her short time with us, Chianti has aged like fine wine and proven she’s meant to be someone’s loyal companion. “I am so impressed with the progress that she has made going from scary protective mamma to the sweetheart she is now,” says her foster dad. No longer focused on being the “fierce protector” of kittens, Chianti is a “sweet girl that loves attention with a little bit of sass hiding beneath the surface." She’s even gone out of her way to befriend other cats in her foster home, including an orphan kitten who needed a buddy. It turns out that Chianti had so much love bottled up, just waiting for the right people. Can she serve up her next round for you?
