Zelda – Cat Number 1153 – Age (approx) 15 years old – Arrival Date March 2021
Zelda is an outdoor cat who could live with children age 10+. Zelda could be rehomed with other cats and/or dogs.
During the months Zelda spent in the shelter, she was very quiet and she would spend majority of her time in the back of her pen in hidden away in her box, only to come out when it’s feeding time. We suspected she was stressed, and she was suffering from gastro-intestinal issues which vets believed was stress related as after us putting her on a hypo-allergenic diet and running numerous tests that all came back clear, there was still sickness and loose stools. We also noticed a bit of baldness on her back legs, which the vets suspect is overgrooming due to stress. Despite all this going on, Zelda always proved to be a very affectionate girl who loves to receive fuss and attention, and would always nudge into our hands for a cuddle.
Zelda is currently on foster with one of our members of staff to see if she would come out of her shell once she’s in a home environment, and if her stress-related health issues would improve in a home environment.
Zelda has been an absolute pleasure since being on foster and she’s really blossomed into a confident, beautiful girl since she left the shelter. She is currently sharing a home with two other cats and a puppy, and she is great with all of them – she was offered a room of her own in case she wanted space but she’s been desperate to be with everyone else. She’s happy when curled up on the bed or an armchair with both cats and the puppy, but she’s also not afraid to tell the puppy off if she steps out of line.
Not only does Zelda enjoy living with other animals, she also absolutely adores human company. She always comes to greet you when you arrive home and she will often roll around the floor or rub up against the furniture in happiness to see you. She loves to be stroked and will often sit as close to you as possible, or climb up on your lap for attention. She also enjoys being picked up and will snuggle right in for a cuddle.
Whilst Zelda has been in foster care, her stress-related issues have been non-existent, her stools are perfect and there is no sickness (apart from the odd hair ball). Please note that her gastro-intestinal issues will be classed as pre-existing, so any potential rehomers would need to consider this for their pet insurance as it may be excluded if she did need any treatment in the future.
Overall Zelda will make a perfect family member for one very lucky family. She is loving, laid back, sociable and super affectionate. After 189 days in a shelter pen this girl deserves to be in a forever home who loves her as much as she will undoubtedly love them back, where she can spend the rest of her life loved, spoiled and stress-free.
