Facts about Sophia

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
My name is Sophia. I was 10 years old when my owners decided they no longer wanted me. They took me to the kitty doctor to have me "put to sleep." Thankfully my kitty doctor doesnt euthanize healthy kitties and asked my former owners if they would sign me over to them so they could find me a good home.

I was miserable living at the kitty doctors clinic. It is a scary place and I hid a lot and cried all the time. Thankfully Purrs & Wags uses the same kitty doctor and he asked the Purrs & Wags human if I could come stay with her. She said yes.

At first I was scared here. I hid behind the toilet in her bathroom and would give her bottom a swat from time to time, if she was ignoring me. I discovered she was a good human and started to trust her. Now I dont mind the rubs, and scratches, and to tell the truth I cant wait for them. I sometimes call her out to come and pet me.

I am not fond of the other animals here. I hiss at them but have never fought with any of them. I'm kind of an old girl and fighting is for the kids, not me. I prefer to stay to myself and get my love and affection with the human.

The human said there will be no adoption fee for me if the right human decides they would love me forever. I am extremely healthy for my age. I have no chronic health conditions. Compared to the humans other kitties I am sort of small. I only weight about 7 pounds but I've never been a big girl. I am a healthy size. My former humans declawed me on the front. I am really looking for that special human that has that big heart that will love me the rest of my days.

About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or injured. When they are ready we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
