Around eight weeks ago, residents of a Brooklyn apartment complex noticed a tortoiseshell cat scaling a fire escape. Her motives were not solely for sustenance, but also for some affection from the kind-hearted tenants within the building. Displaying confidence, she appeared at windows as if she had done this before, in search of someone to dote on her. Once she found someone willing to provide her with a bite to eat, she became a regular visitor. This charming tortoiseshell was both hungry and craving affection, waiting on the window sill for some TLC from her newfound friends.
Once she finished her food, the tortoiseshell cat would eagerly seek out her human companions for some extra love and attention. Her affectionate nature was apparent as she would stand on her hind legs and nuzzle their hands, always wanting more. Unfortunately, no one in the area claimed ownership of the cat and she had been wandering the streets for a while.
The tenants, aware that the outdoors were not a suitable place for her, sought to find a loving home for Lanna. They contacted their nearby all-volunteer rescue group called Bushwick Street Cats and requested assistance in finding the deserving cat a new home. According to Love Meow, Lanna was often seen scaling a nearby fire escape in search of food and affection, prompting the tenants to seek help because they recognized her unique qualities.
Lanna, a lovely tortie cat, was thought to be around one year old. She had a charming and amiable personality that was evident as she walked confidently with her tail held high. Lanna was always enthusiastic about meeting new people, and she got along well with other cats.
Once she was spayed, fully vetted, and microchipped, the rescue organization started seeking a perfect home for her. They shared her story on social media platforms, brought her to an adoption show, and hoped that Lanna would find her ideal family soon.
Evan Walker fell in love with Lanna the moment he laid eyes on her online. He immediately applied to adopt her and was thrilled when he had the opportunity to meet her at an adoption event. It was clear to Evan that Lanna was the perfect match for him – a gorgeous and spirited tortoiseshell cat. Under her new name, DJ, Lanna eagerly said goodbye to the Bushwick Street Cats volunteers and started her new life in her forever home.
Over the course of a few weeks, DJ has transformed into a stunning feline with a charming disposition. Not only does she enjoy being petted, but she also relishes playing with her toys. According to Evan, DJ has a sassy streak and is known for playfully swatting at people’s feet before quickly scurrying away and then returning for some affectionate snuggles. The whole situation is quite comical!
The tortoiseshell cat is thriving in social situations and making many new acquaintances. She particularly enjoys receiving affection from her owner, which prompts her to knead contentedly with her paws and emit soothing purring sounds, creating a calming atmosphere in the house.
