Sweet Pea needs help
Dear readers; after having her four babies at a construction site, being relocated to a foster home, and nursing her babies to glorious health, Sweet Pea has now come to a crossroads in her life. All four kittens have found their forever homes (Manga and Chutney went home together, as did Truffle and Pistou). But we have not found a home for Sweet Pea. If we cannot find a space for her by next Friday at the latest we will have to return her to the outside. Can you help? Please post and forward this appeal.
Sweet Pea is shy. She enjoys petting, brushing, and scratching, but does not want to be picked up. She's a little afraid of people, and would do best in a quieter household. She is not aggressive at all, but she is a hisser. It's just her way! She should be in a home with at least one feline companion. An older male would be perfect. Sweet Pea has made social strides while in our care and could progress more with a patient home. She is spayed, neg/neg, and vaccinated.
I have an actual feralish cat in my own home and, while I regret not being able to pet her, she's become part of our household. She loves to sit with my male cat; she even goes out onto the patio. Cats like this are stuck between two worlds ... can't be adopted because they are too shy for a shelter environement; can't be streeted because that would break our hearts. Poor Sweet Pea was not part of a colony, so she'd be on her own outside.
She loves to sit on the windowsill and bask in the sunlight.
