My story

***IN FOSTER***Hail, The Queen: Sheba!Currently, Sheba lives in a home with a foster parents who reports that she is an absolute delight. But, like all cats who find their way to EHS, Sheba's life has been mixed with ups and downs (and even a name change, along the way!). Not long ago, Sheba was loved and doted upon by an owner who spoiled her immensely! In fact, they spoiled, treated, and loved her so enthusiastically that Lady Sheba came to us, needing to lose a few pounds! Sadly, her loving owner had to surrender her because they moved to a long term care facility in which a cat was not allowed. Sheba's previous owner knew exactly what they were doing when they chose to name her after a powerful female heroine, known for her ability to command nations and make strong kings bow down before her immense wisdom and beauty.Our Sheba will certainly make you weak in the knees the moment you get a look at her. Luscious reds and browns intermingle in her beautiful tortoiseshell coat to create an absolute work of art! And she's guaranteed to make you splurge on catnip and shiny toys the moment she allows you chin scritches!Not only is Sheba friendly and eager to interact but she's also intelligent! Sheba actually does answer to "Sheba!" She might even answer to "Her Majesty" if she feels like it, who knows? Give it a shot! What she will NOT answer to, is Priscilla Presley, the name she was given (for a very short while) when she first came under the care of her foster. Well, she quickly let us know that this was just not going to work with her Highness. So, Sheba it is!After the initial surprise of being relocated to a new home, Sheba's true personality quickly re-emerged. She's a friendly girl who happily allows pets and especially loves to be scratched under the chin, on her face and head. Overall, Sheba is affectionate, good-natured and eager to interact with people. She is a playful girl who is now comfortable enough to let her foster parents know she wants to play. One of her favorite playtime activities is running up and down the hall. Her foster parents will sometimes toss her mouse to get her going and they love seeing her having so much fun! They especially love when she gets her daily dose of the zoomies and runs all over the place sometimes even chasing a ball or laser!Sheba does not love to be held, however, and she does get overstimulated at times and will give a little nip if you don't notice it. Sheba's foster also says that she is occasionally the recipient of a "love nip". That's just Sheba demonstrating her queenly prerogative. Chalk it up to "tortitude"! And Sheba does startle whenever the front door opens, taking cover in her safe space under the bed. Every day she is getting better and not hiding for nearly as long. Now that her foster's brother is working from home, Sheba has become his little work buddy and spends a lot of time hanging out with him. The two have really bonded and even through Sheba does not like having her nails trimmed, she has allowed him to trim them while sitting in his lap. It helps that she gets a treat after each nail is trimmed too! Sheba also is enjoying her new cat scratcher which will definitely help keep her nails trimmed.Sheba has a condition called hypertrophic cardimyopathy. Her condition appears stable at this time, but this condition can be progressive and impede heart function. To assist with the heart's function and try to delay any type of progression, Sheba requires medication. This medication costs about $20 a month and, according to Sheba's foster mom, she is a superstar at taking it! Sheba will also require a recheck cardiac ultrasound in 6-12 months.To ensure that Sheba maintains her meow-del appearance and, of course, her health, Sheba also needs help with her diet. The key to keeping her trim and healthy is to measure her portions and limit the treats. Add in some playtime exercise, and it's really that easy! Sheba has indicated that she might like to share her accommodations with another friendly feline or two, as she continues to make overtures to the foster's resident cats. They, unfortunately, are having none of it! We haven't yet determined whether Sheba might be a fan of sharing accommodations with any other members of the animal kingdom (humans excepted, of course), but small children would not be a great fit.Legend has it that "torties" are especially sure of what they want. Do you know what Sheba wants most of all? She'd love a new, stable furr-ever home, someone to trust, someone she knows will keep her safe and healthy and, of course, someone who knows how to shower her with the spoils a royal, such as she deserves! So stock up on the frankincense, spices and jewels before welcoming her home! If you can't find those in stores, healthy treats, strings and little soft balls work too!--------------------The adoption fee for a single cat at EHS is $175. Take home a feline friend for your kitty and the adoption fee for the pair is $300! For kittens under six months of age, the adoption fee is $200. Or double your cuteness quotient and adopt two wee furrballs for $350! Each of our cats is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, snap tested for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, and flea treated prior to adoption. Kittens are not spayed or neutered until 5 months of age, but the cost of spay/neuter will be covered as part of the adoption.--------------------Please contact cats@etobicokehumanesociety.com for more details about Sheba or fill out our online form. An EHS representative will be pleased to help.
