We had a great week for cat adoptions last week. All of the cats I told you about in last week’s cat blog have been spoken for! Let’s make the same thing happen this week, shall we?
Senior Cat Casper
First up is 1o-year-old, black beauty Casper. He’s been waiting for the perfect home for more than a month now, and he’s hoping this is his lucky week.
When he first arrived in the shelter, Casper was sickly and worried. But with the love of our staff and volunteers (and plenty of yummy foods and not-so-yummy medications), he’s regained his strength. And he’s discovered that people are quite a bit of fun.
Casper loves to be petted, and he’ll butt his head into your hands to keep the love coming. He can be picked up and carried, and he likes to sit in laps. He would make a wonderful companion for someone seeking out a mellow, loving lap kitty. He gets along nicely with other cats, so he can join an existing family easily.
Like many senior cats, Casper has some kidney issues. He’ll need a special diet to keep that under control, and he’ll need encouragement to drink plenty of water. A fountain would be an excellent investment for this pretty kitty.
Senior Sweetie Bueller
Why are there so many senior cats in this blog this week, you ask? Because November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month. Cats like Bueller are hoping you will choose them.
Bueller came to the shelter when his family fell ill. He’s 10 years old, and that’s a hard transition for an old guy to make. But Bueller has adjusted to shelter life quite nicely. He enjoys meeting new people (especially if they have treats), and he spends his days soaking up all the love his new friends can give him.
Bueller isn’t pushy, and he doesn’t sit at the front of his suite and demand attention. He hangs back to see if you’d like to talk with him. That could make him the perfect kitty for you, if you like your animals on the polite side of the spectrum. He’s not likely to keep you up all night with demands for attention.
Bueller has lived with other cats before, and he likes them. We’re not sure how he feels about dogs. He might also like to live with respectful children. We hope you’ll come to meet him.
Orange Tabby Liberty
They say orange tabby females are rare. But we sure seem to get a lot of them in the shelter. This is one of the prettiest tabbies we’ve seen. Her name is Liberty, and she’s about a year old.
Liberty came to the shelter due to poor cat box habits. After a thorough exam, we determined that this sweet girl has the tendency to develop crystals in her urine. They hurt when she used her cat box, and she expressed that pain in a way families don’t enjoy. With the right food and some medication, Liberty is using her box in the shelter like a champ. But she’ll need that food and plenty of water for the rest of her life to stay healthy.
Liberty is a wonderful little kitty, but she can be a little bit shy. She gets worried about fast movements and loud noises, and strangers make her concerned. She may never be a life-of-the-party cat, but she has a lot of love to give the right person.
Liberty has lived with other cats, and she enjoys them. We’re not sure about dogs. She would do best in a home with older children, as the young ones worry her.
That’s it for this week! If you see a cat you’re in love with, be sure to come down and say hello very soon. Cats get adopted quicker than you thought possible.
