Cats Available for adoption at the Sanctuary

We always accept general applications. Approved applications are put on our interest list and you will be notified about incoming cats first. If you are interested in a particular cat, please indicate this in your application. 

Louise

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2007

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Black

GENDER: Spayed Female

MEDICAL: Overweight. Being heavy, Louise needs help to lose some weight. Excess weight can eventually cause other medical concerns like arthritis, heart disease and diabetes so it’s important she continues to get to her ideal weight. Her weight also causes some constipation which is easily managed with over the counter “restorolax” added to her wet food. She will need to be maintained on wet food only and have access to lots of fresh water (we recommend cat water fountains to all adopters). 

BIO: Louise is a sweet girl who is 13 years or older in age. She came from a loving home with an older couple. Louise has lived with another cat before, neither cat really interacted. Louise would be comfortable with another cat friend or two as long as they aren’t too pushy. She has met other cats in her foster home and tries to approach them without hissing.

Louise is shy at first and will hide in new situations. Once she feels more comfortable and safe she enjoys exploring her surroundings. She really enjoys pats and attention from people as long as you go to her. In her previous home she would get on the bed and spend time with her people. Louise loves belly rubs and will flop over for them! She also likes to “chat” with you and has cute meows.

Louise does not have any health concerns beyond her weight. Her adoptive home will need to help her loose weight slowly so that future health concerns do not arise. Currently Louise’s mobility is affected by her weight, however this is improving every day. Pet stairs help her join you on the couch or bed when she feels ready! Due to her weight Louise was having trouble grooming herself and came to us with many matts. She had to have her back shaved and the fur is growing back in. Due to her weight, Louise sometimes gets constipated. Simple over the counter “restorolax” helps with this along with providing a cat water fountain and feeding a wet food only diet (which we recommend for all seniors!)

Louise loves to play. She moves crinkle balls and pompoms overnight and she loves the laser pointer and wand toys. This will be a great way to help encourage her to get up and moving!

Louise is looking for a patient and quiet home. She’ll need time to settle in and feel safe. Once she does, she blossoms into the sweetest girl! Whoever adopts this cutie will be truly blessed to have her in their life.
