Electra, a young gray-and-white female, is a sweet and friendly cat. Fostermom Flora writes that "she is really affectionate and cuddly with us -- purrs like a steamroller when I stroke her back or even belly." She lives with another (foster) cat and three young children and has been delightful (her foster-sister, Elphie, is also avaible). Electra was originally found locked in a storage compartment in a basement (in a building in Hyde Park)! She has made a full recovery from her ordeal and is spayed, vaxed, neg/neg, and ready to go to her furrever home.
Thank you to Mike and his boyfriend (sorry, I never caught his name!) for saving Electra and her companion. Electra's companion, Orestes, was in very rough shape when he was found -- he had some wounds, possibly from trying to escape, and just generally was in poor health. We found he was both FIV and FeLV positive, and, given his overall poor condition, made the decision that it was time to have him humanely euthanized. Electra, while a little underweight, was basically fine and I have to wonder if Orestes gave his all to protect her. RIP, Orestes -- we're glad you were provided a few last days of comfort.
