I'm absolutely heartbroken that I have to do this. I am recently unemployed, which has led me to move back in with parents. Unfortunately, they have three dogs and I cannot have Edith roam freely around the house as the dogs are not cat-friendly. Currently, she is staying in one of the bedrooms, which I do not believe is a sustainable living situation for her. 
About Edith: 
Let me start with her medical history. Edith has an inflamed bowel. She's on a 5mg of prednisolone every other day - crushed in her food or pilled orally (whichever is easier). My vet also put her on a specific food that seemed to help control her tummy a bit: Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Selected Protein Adult PV Dry Cat Food.
With the medication and food, her symptoms are very well under control. I haven't had any issues with it since I started her on this regimen a year and a half ago. (However, I think down the line it would be worth exploring other treatment options since prolonged steroid use in cats isn't ideal).
Other than the medical issue, she's really very low maintenance - and a complete sweetheart. 
She's an indoor cat. Again, she's very petite (last time we weighed her she was around 9 lbs) and can shy around strangers. Once she warms up to you, though, she's a snuggle bug and quite playful. She likes to lay next to or on top of you if you're on the couch or the bed. She's generally pretty mellow, but she does get the zoomies every now and then - especially when she gets into the catnip : )
I'd LOVE for her to go to a home where she's an only cat or maybe with one other cat. At her previous foster home, she lived with a bunch of other cats and it wasn't ideal for her. She's not aggressive, but since she's so tiny I think she felt intimidated. She spent most of her time hiding and would then run to scarf down a bit of food before the other cats would finish it all. I really don't want her to live like that again. 

About Friends of San Martin Animal Shelter

About Our Rescue Group...

FOSMAS is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit that provides rescue and foster care for Santa Clara County Animal Shelter cats and dogs.

Our primary goal is to lower the euthanasia rate at the shelter, reduce the overpopulation of homeless cats, and provide public outreach services to help the animals and staff at the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter in San Martin, CA. We can accomplish this goal by increasing adoptions and expanding our volunteer program. We provide homes, medical and comfort care to all animals in foster care until adopted.

FOSMAS provide specialty services for care of pre-wean kittens, we train fosters in animal care and provide foster homes for County cats & dogs. FOSMAS provides all necessary food, supplies, and medical treatments for the pets it retrieves from the Santa Clara County Animal Shelter, places them in adoption centers and holds pet fairs to find forever homes for the pets in our foster system.

We partner with local pet stores, such as Petco and PetSmart and local area businesses to run pet adoption fairs and events to showcase our pets available for adoption and educate the public about our rescue group and shelter. We also maintain our website and Pet Site listings to electronically showcase adoptable pets

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host a multitude of pet fairs monthly. Please visit our Facebook page for updated times and locations for our pet fairs.

FOSMAS volunteers also foster animals in private homes. Please contact or 669.228.4440 (voicemail) for more information about home visits or to make an appointment to see a particular kitty.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, interview, and interaction with the kitty. If everything goes well, we ask for an adoption fee. What the fee goes toward is de-worming, de-fleaing, age-appropriate vaccinations, tested negative for feline leukemia (and FIV if over 6 months old), spay or neuter, and micro-chipping. We require all members of the household to be present for the interaction so we can see how the kitty responds with each person and vice-versa, that there are no allergic reactions, and that all family members are on-board with the adoption and kitty selected. We do this to minimize the risk of the kitty being returned and to make sure there are no allergy issues.

Kittens.................................$125 (under 18 months)
Cats.................................$75 (18 months and older)
