She came to us toward the end of May, her ragged, stained collar still creating an impression in the fur around her neck as we took it off. It would take weeks for that indentation to go away, and we all wondered about her true story as we fabricated a make-believe one to explain how this gentle creature ended up at Animal Services.
Although her records claim her to be 1.5 years old, her teeth and body tell a different story and she is most likely closer to 8-10 years of age. Her beautiful silvery grey patterned fur is a bit on the dry side and her hips and posterior have taken on an almost human grandmotherly form.
She sleeps a lot.
She loves her chow.
She enjoys being scratched on the back of the neck and in front of her tail...
... and when she is really content she purrs loudly and her nose drips a tiny bit.
She is so absolutely endearing that a couple who were visiting from Poland completely fell in love with her and wanted to adopt her to take her back to Europe--but unfortunately a 10 day car journey as they finished their vacation with a drive to Niagra plus several long flights would have been too much for our senior girl.
Please share her story--this girl deserves a loving home of her own!
