Gladys is ‘glad as’ can be to have been rescued as a stray, and then again from a local kill shelter trying to go no-kill. That may have been two of her nine lives forfeited, but she knows now her life as a feline is going to be on a much better trajectory.
Gladys can be a character; sort of like the crotchety old lady who one minute is pinching your cheeks, and the next minute scolding you for some minor infraction. She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES petting, and will, on occasion give your hand head-butts of happiness, and make you some biscuits. But (yes, there’s a but), when she has had enough, she quickly signals ‘discontinue.’ It’s all about understanding her body language. And there is always the ‘paws’ability that Gladys will change her ways when in her forever home; it can happen -- really. Here in the rescue, Gladys tolerates her roomies. She just has the ‘cat’itude that she pulls higher rank, and they need to act accordingly.
Gladys is really quite a friendly gal with a lovely purr to go along with her ‘purr’dy fur coat. So, if you are the type who delights in a kitty with an occasional tad snarky ‘purrs’onality, then Gladys may just be for YOU. Gladys has put “finding a loving, forever home” on her bucket list. Would you be the one to make that happen?

Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to enriching the lives of cats in Greater Cincinnati. We promote humane, non-lethal methods of reducing the feral cat population. This includes advising people about Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and loaning humane traps. Our clinic offers low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter services for ferals, strays, and pets. We also run a small no-kill rescue that finds loving homes for cats and kittens.
