ELSIE, 3 year old Female Seal Point Siamese.
Velvety soft, kind and gentle are just a few words that describe this beautiful blue-eyed girl. Elsie has had a sad go of it during the last few months. First, her owner suddenly passed away. Then, when the family came to clear out the house, they took all the belongings except for Elsie. Their decision of what to do with this sweet girl, was to just put her outside to fend for herself. After 6 weeks outside, a nice neighbor contacted us to let us know about her.
Elsie came to us very scared and stressed. Because she was outside, she needed to be quarantined for two weeks. She spent most of this time hiding under the bed. However, no matter how stressed she was, she has never hissed or shown any aggression to her foster family. She has been extremely tolerant as she had a bath and nail trim.
Elsie did start losing hair on her face after 1 weeks in foster care. We had the vet do a skin scraping to make sure that it was not contagious, and that came back clear. The vet feels that the stress of losing her owner, and then being put out on the street and then captured again and put in rescue put her immune system into a tail spin and caused the hair loss and itchy spots and gum inflammation. Although the hair had already grown back, she still had some itchy spots and her gums were still inflamed. The vet put her on prednisone, and it is quickly clearing up.
If you are looking for a high-energy cat with the playfulness of a kitten, then Elsie is NOT the cat for you. Elsie is a quiet cat, and although she has tolerated the 3 young boys in her foster home, she would do best in an quieter home. She has bonded with the oldest boy (9), and you can find her sleeping beside him at night and snuggling into a warm blanket beside him while he reads. She is not a “lap cat,” but rather a “happy to just sit beside you cat.”
Elsie has come out of her shell over the past month, but she will need a family that is willing to be patient with her while she adjusts to her new home. She is tolerant of other gentle cats and well behaved dogs, but she would be happy to be your one and only too.
Elsie will come to you spayed, fully vetted, current on shots, FeLV/FIV negative and microchipped. Elsie is fostered in Salinas.
Elsie eats wet and dry food and is litter box perfect.

Rescue Group Info...
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.
Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.
Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.
Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.
When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!
READY TO ADOPT?
First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.
Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.
We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
