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 survivor... and one of the most playful cats you will ever meet! She has a lot of gusto and is adept at catching and keeping whatever toy passes her way. A talented climber, Cerise will frequently worm her way into the obscure corners of your home and come crashing out (or "down") unexpectedly. Cerise has a very unique meow which couples with her thundering purr to make her a very high decibel feline at times; most of the time, though, she is content to lay quietly by your feet or sit perched 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.

As a result of having to fight for survival, Cerise can be territorial with other animals and seems to be afraid of children. We feel she would probably be most comfortable in a household with adults and no other cats. She adores human attention and loves interactive play. We don’t yet know her thoughts on dogs.

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?
