Odie came into ARF’s care when her senior owner needed to enter a nursing home. The transition was difficult for two friends who had been family to each other for 10 years. Odie took the change with some difficulty, initially shutting down and avoiding all human or animal contact.
A young foster mom took on the challenge and welcomed Odie in to her home. At first, Odie hid in a closet and kept her back towards the door. Slowly she began to listen to the soft voice of her foster mom and ventured out. After two weeks of increasing contact, Odie ventured out of the bedroom and explored the house. There was a minor blip when she met the resident cat, but she soon convinced him that she was the boss.
Odie is not a playful cat, but she is a happy girl. She loves to sit at the window and watch the world go by, or sleep in a sunny spot. She loves to be petted, and enjoys a brushing. Although she is not fond of being picked up, she does like to settle in on your lap or beside you on the sofa. She loves to sleep with her foster mom and cuddle up.
Odie has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and received flea treatment and been treated for parasites. She uses her litterbox faithfully. A little on the chunky side, Odie is on food to help reduce her weight. Although she faithfully grooms herself, it is difficult for her with the additional weight. Odie is patiently waiting for her forever home. To give this sweet senior girl, please visit www.arfontario.com
