Gretchen was found around 54th and East View Park by the human Gretchen, she who brought us Heartie and Lucy (still available!). Gretchen is a darling dumpling, slightly rotund in the tum-tum area. She is responsive to people and enjoys being petted. Her current fosterplace has wall-to-wall carpet and she kind of scoots herself along on her side, pulling herself by the claws in order to continue the petting! She is very sweet, has excellent litterbox habits, and is an all-around nice kitty.
We believe that Gretchen was dumped outside by her former owner ... it's a sad reality that pets are often dumped in Hyde Park from some of the more economically depressed communities around us (her previous owner was contacted and has since relinquished a second cat). She is spayed, neg/neg for viruses, and ready to go to a home where she is loved and treasured. She says she's a Hyde Parker now, but she's willing to relocate again for the right home!
Thanks to Mike H. for his recent donation and to Charles Z. for his donation. And we also want to thank Feng Shu L., who helped us out during a busy holiday season by fostering a kitty while the regular fostermom was away on holiday!
