Gray/peach dilute tortoiseshell, short hair, female, born approx. 1/1/14, #11786
When Cerise’s former "guardians" moved out of their apartment... they not only left her behind, they locked her inside! She survived for several weeks without any food or water before she was eventually found by the buildings’ maintenance crew. The Rescue House was called and dispatched a volunteer to take her directly to the nearby veterinary hospital. She spent weeks recuperating at the vet before she was cleared to go into foster care, where she finished regaining her health.
Cerise is a complete sweetheart of a cat. While she may not be an in-your-lap cat, she absolutely adores your companionship and gets attached to her people very easily; her foster woke up every morning at 6:00am to start working and Cerise was immediately up to follow him around the house and then cozy up on her favorite blanket in the same room while he worked through the day. In the evening, when more people might be home, Cerise will wander around checking on what everyone is up to; she’s independent and relaxed while also being quite playful and easily entertained... crinkly bags are fabulous and she excels at catching and keeping whatever toy passes her way. A talented climber, Cerise sometimes finds herself in obscure corners and may come crashing out (or "down") unexpectedly. With a unique meow and a thunderpurr, Cerise can be a louder cat at times, though she’s often quietly going about her business nearby. She can understandably be quite the enthusiastic eater, so she will need to go to a home where her new family can monitor and restrict her food intake if need be.
Cerise needs to be the only cat in her household and she is not very fond of dogs, either. She would be most comfortable in an adult household or one with kids over ten, as she wants respect in her handling. Given the right environment, Cerise shines as is described above—however, she knows that a retail store is not a proper home and visitors may not always see that side of her. It’s waiting in the wings, though!
Cerise has gone through a lot, more than a kitty should, yet she is on the home stretch. The last piece of Cerise’s puzzle could be you: are you the one to take her to her "furr-ever" home?
