Today’s Featured Pet is Zoe!
We know that stuff happens and sometimes things don’t go as planned, but it seems poor Zoe has had an inordinate amount of bad luck in life. After her original owner and best friend passed away, Zoe found herself at our shelter about a year ago. When adopted by her first family, Zoe already had a few mysteriously missing toes (unclear whether due to an accident or abuse) and a tic of kicking her legs while sleeping and expressing a very small amount of urine. This tic didn’t seem to cause her any other issues or discomfort, and her original family loved her anyway, but we knew it would take a special new adopter to see past it and give her a second chance. Zoe has since been adopted and returned three times for various reasons not her fault, the last time when her adopter moved out of state and she was given away.
Zoe is 7 years old, a sweet and sassy girl, loving and independent all at once. She asserts her desire for personal space from other cats right away, and she’s then happy to live and let live. Calm and undemanding, Zoe loves chilling and napping in her predicatable preferred spots, which should make dealing with her issue pretty manageable. Since she is missing toes she can’t easily jump up to high places, making her a perfect choice for a mellow household looking for a kitty uninterested in mischief. We KNOW the right home is out there for this beautiful girl, who despite her trials, loves people anyway and wants nothing more than the simplest things in life – a family and a safe place to rest her head. Zoe would do fine with another mature, respectful feline, but she says no dogs, please and thank you.
Her adoption fee is only $20 for Adopt a Cat month, and we couldn’t think of a better time to share her story and hope someone is willing to give her the real forever home she truly deserves. Please stop in to meet Zoe!
