A wonderful rescue group bailed the little family out and put them in foster care. They were cared for and loved, but when the kittens were big enough, all were vetted and the family was sent to the shelter for adoption. All the babies were adopted, of course, but Emma Jean was left behind in a group cat room and she did not like the situation. She wanted the attention of everyone who came in so she would spit and hiss at the other cats to keep them away and no one would adopt her. She became depressed and then had recurrent illnesses. To save her life, she was taken into another foster home, and after a few months she adapted and got well again. She can stay in that home forever, but there are still other cats and she would prefer to be an ONLY cat. She is loving to any person who comes to visit, as if saying PLEASE take me home with you, but they all have dogs or other cats so she stays here. It's not a bad life for her, she is loved and cared for, but she still hopes to be somebody's number one cat, to sleep in their bed and to have ALL the attention. She maintains perfect health by following a simple diet of low carbohydrate canned food, some roasted chicken, a few treats a day and no dry food. She also insists on fragrance-free dust-free clumping kitty litter (Dr. Elsey's ULTRA). She tolerates the other cats (there are no dogs here) but she would prefer to be the love of your life, the ONLY pet, and she doesn't want to share your affection. If you are someone in need of a great companion, contact us and we'll discuss having a trial period to see if you are made for each other. She is welcome here forever -- we just want to find an even better place for her to live out her life.
