SOFIA - READ HER STORY!!'s Story...
Sofia has a story that is sad, long and difficult to unravel. The one thing that is obvious is that her next home will be at least her third and she is a wonderful, AWESOME cat that deserves for this to be her final and forever home. Sofia
was initially "rehomed" by someone via Craigslist. This was last January and her new home from Craigslist didn't even last nine months. The 93-year-old allergic father-in-law was moving in so she had to go. She was taken to the SPCA where she was admitted and had extensive vetting. The SPCA document describes her as "Great! Sofia has head bumped, rubbed and seemed relaxed in her kennel. Sofia came in very matted. I brushed her and she really enjoyed it." Shortly after she came to the SPCA she accidentally scratched someone. Yes, she is declawed so she could only have scratched them with her back claws. She is a large cat for a female (10 pounds) and might have been picked up in an awkward way and tried to regain her footing. The only thing her foster mom is certain of is that she did not do it on purpose or with intent to scratch. However, it happened so the SPCA took Sofia to the local kill shelter. Had the SPCA kept her in their quarantine area, they could have adopted her out after the 10-day period, but by taking her to a local kill shelter, her only option was euthanasia or rescue. It is unknown why the SPCA chose to limit her options and not accept her into their quarantine since they could have then found her a home, but sadly for Sofia, this is what they did. Shelter quarantines are required by law to euthanize the animal after the 10-day quarantine is up unless rescue will take them. Because she is such an extraordinary cat, the shelter staff and volunteers fell in love with her. Sofia had been dealt a raw hand by both her previous owners and the SPCA, so the shelter staff/volunteers called Furry Friends the day her quarantine was up and asked if they could take her into their adoption program. A FFAR volunteer went to the shelter that day and read through the mountain of paperwork that came with Sofia, both from her previous owner and the SPCA. Everything from her previous owner attested to her being a great cat. This paperwork will be passed on to her new family, but it said she is "Very loving, smart, quiet and laid back. Very sweet personality." Said she was a lap cat and very calm. There is an extensive questionnaire the SPCA had her owner fill out and it is all positive. Again, it is unclear why the SPCA took her to the kill shelter for an accidental scratch with her back feet because she is extremely adoptable based on the forms from her owner and their own assessment of positive attributes. After extensively handling Sofia and touching her everywhere, throwing her next to other animals, and doing everything possible to elicit aggression without managing to do so, Sofia entered the FFAR foster/adoption program. She has absolutely no reaction to other cats or dogs. She is great with kids and as friendly as she can be. When her hair grows out, she will be a beautiful fluffy blue and white tuxedo. Sofia just turned six years old so she has lots of love left to give. Please consider this beautiful kitty only if you can be her final and forever home. She is so deserving of a stable loving environment. Please fill out an application and meet Sofia today. You can see for yourself how amazing and special she is. Sweet Sofia is as gentle and sweet as a kitty an be. See for yourself!!!
