My story

Mae was placed with a Foster on Sunday, 22 August 2021 to address her behavioral issues. Mae had been very sad and lethargic while in her cage since her arrival 1 August 2021. Will assess Mae in a home environment and give her more constant attention that what the pet center can provide.

Mae was adopted on 19 November 2021 and returned four months later on 2 March 2022. Mae adjusted well in the home - she was the only pet - but Mae was indifferent to her foster. While Mae would be relaxing on the sofa, when approached, she was leave and go into her (Mae) bed. Mae is the type of cat that will be around you, but not near you as to pet or hold. Mae most definitely has had a rocky start. She was on calming medications for the first month of her adoption - the last three without any medication but on over the counter calming sprays and chews.

Mae returned to the foster on 2 March 2022. Behavioral re-assessment in progress.


Below is Mae's initial narrative - maintained for documentation purposes.

Mae arrived to the Pet Adoption Center on Sunday, 1 August 2021. Sadly, she was owner surrendered.

Mae is a SWEET, gentle, LOVING cat. Extremely AFFECTIONATE!

LOVES attention - petting, brushing, combing, face-chin-ear rubs. You get the idea.

She has been through so much in such a short time - so many changes - sudden absences - that she needs a wee bit of time to warm up to you. Will not take that long - she is so wanting to nap on a lap, someone she can snuggle with while reading the paper, watching movies or even watching the rain through the window.

Mae came from a multi-cat household. When her Dad had to be admitted to a nursing home, she lost her best friend. Of all the cats he had, Mae was his F A V O R I T E! She was doted and loved upon more than the rest. She is feeling that loss now.

While she gets along with other cats in a respectful manner - each has their own realm, at this point in Mae's life she would love to be your one and only if possible. Other cats okay, but she wants her own space and all the she had before.

Mae will talk to you - when she is frightened or / and relaxed. You have to figure out which!

Mae can be picked up and held. She LOVES the closeness with her human.

Side note: when Mae arrived to us, she needed some TLC and a mini-spa consisting of a mani, pedi and a bath! She LOVED all of it. She NEVER once meowed, hissed or growled at us....know what she did? She P U R R E D! and P U R R E D some more. I think she enjoyed the toweling process the best as she was also massaged...and she kept P U R R I N G.

She is not Microchipped

Her birthday is - are you ready for this - 1 May 2015!!!!. She is the one May (Mae) you will ever need in your life.

Monthly flea treatment due on the 1st.
