found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
It's hard to believe that a purebred Russian Blue cat would ever end up in a shelter because Russian Blue breeders are highly protective of the cats they place. But there she was, sitting in a shelter in San Diego. Her owner died and the heirs just dumped her. Local rescues were too full and one of our fosters has a soft spot for the breed, so Maggie was able to make the trip all of the way from San Diego to Vacaville, CA.
Maggie is a gentle girl, a touch overwhelmed at finding herself in a shelter and then a new foster home. She is also an affectionate kitty, however, and once she gets over her initial shyness, she rolls right over for tummy rubs. We think the perfect home for her would be as a spoiled only pet. She has a beautiful expression on her face that compels a person to want to pick her up and protect her forever.
Maggie is the "real deal." Often we see cats in shelters with a "blue" coat color. These cats are more than likely the offspring of a blue point Siamese cat. Although lovely, they are only wannabe Russian Blue cats. Maggie, on the other hand, is a purebred. She has that very unique coat color and texture found only on the Russian Blue cat. Her coat feels like raw silk or linen and it has a silver or platinum type of sheen to it. Her eyes are a rich green, and she has the lovely facial structure expected for the breed.
At this time Maggie is in a room of her own where she can watch the other cats but does not have to interact with them. She may be OK with another gentle cat, but it's hard to tell since all of the other cats in her foster home are divas. She seems to be getting used to seeing the large old dogs wander past her windows. She doesn't run and hide from them so maybe she would be fine with a gentle dog that is used to cats and knows to leave them alone. We think the perfect home for Maggie would be as a spoiled only pet but we are willing to consider other options.
Maggie has been health checked and it was determined that she has a small umbilical hernia. The general consensus is that it is non-reducible and, since she's lived with it her whole live, it's probably not a good idea to mess with it. All this means is that she's got a little bump on her belly. Otherwise, she is a very healthy cat.
There is much written about Russian Blue cats being hypo-allergenic. Although this may be true, we don't want to place her far away with a person who suffers from cat allergies. It would be too hard on everyone if she has to make the trip back to Rescue.
