Cream coat with dark brown/black and touches of muted orange accents. Light green eyes.

HISTORY:  Tatum was trapped in a local colony of cats.

Since her arrival, Tatum has made many friends both human and feline! She typically hangs out with fellow L2 residents Kit and Bandit and enjoys visits from staff and volunteers. Tatum is still a bit more of a low-energy cat and prefers to spend most of her time napping. If you want to pet her while she relaxes, even better! She will purr the whole time. Tatum doesn’t really like to be picked up but other than that she enjoys human interaction and contact. She hasn’t shown much interest in toys so far, but given her age, we anticipate this to change as she gets even more comfortable in her environment. Tatum is a sweet, laid-back cat who will likely take some time to come out of her shell once introduced to her forever home. We promise you that she’s worth the wait!

Fall 2022 Update: “I’ve literally never seen her out and about and walking.  She is always comfortably curled up in a poofy bed on the catio.  She looks pretty content and seems to enjoy a few minutes of my time before other kitties redirect my attention away from her.  She’s a lovely cat, ” explains our cat volunteer, Scott.  Scott is spot on with his observations and I’ll add I am always terribly intrigued with Tatum as her coat is simply captivating.  Tatum is a more quiet girl who tends to lay low. She’s not wanting to be part of the action and the sidelines better suit her style.  Tatum is doing well health wise and looks forward to enjoying the fall display of colors and the cooler temps.

Fall 2023 Update: Tatum is our eternally sweet and under the radar girl! She is not one to create waves and is ok in not really being noticed and simply living a more quiet, calm life. A creature of habit, we can count on finding her outside on the catio. Typically, we will find her in one of the cat trees all curled up in a circle to perfectly fill up the round perch that she enjoys most. Tatum has a special volunteer friend Scott who knows just how to pet her to maximize her happiness! When she is really getting into the perfect scratches, she will give Scott a big lean in and close her eyes in pleasure. With no emerging health issues, Tatum is set up to enjoy the fall color show which will soon begin in earnest. We can’t wait for her to enjoy the cool temps and the pretty sights forthcoming.
