This adorable cow-colored kitty is named Maggie! Maggie is around 12 years old and was originally surrendered to Philly's animal control shelter because her family had a new baby and felt they couldn't care for her. She was then adopted from the shelter, but returned when the other cat in her new home started picking on her. Because she's an older cat and the shelter is currently full of cats, Maggie was selected for euthanasia but rescued by a City of Elderly Love foster family just in time!
It took Maggie a few weeks to settle into her new surroundings since she had been in 3 homes and the shelter twice in such a short time, but she is now letting her sweet personality shine through! She is currently living with other cats and a small dog, but is apprehensive to make friends with them so will need a slow, appropriate introduction to new pets in her forever home. She is also living with small children but seems to prefer when the home is quieter, without a lot of hustle and bustle so would probably be most happy with older kids who will give her the space she wants to snooze and relax. Maggie's favorite thing to do is perch in the window and watch the world go by! You would think she might have a hard time jumping up on the window sills cause she's an older girl, but you'd be wrong! She is very agile. Maggie also seems to love the cool kitchen tile floor and will nap right in the middle of the room! Maggie also loves attention and will turn on her loud motor to purr as soon as she gets some love. Besides having a low-grade heart murmur which isn't uncommon in older pets and doesn't require any additional treatment, she is a healthy girl! This graceful, low-key girl would love to land a laid-back forever home to match her easy-going, lazy personality. Could it be yours?
Maggie is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is also FIV & FeLV negative. Interested in meeting her? Visit www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
