My story

Sheba was returned from adoption in 2022 when her adopter was dying of cancer. She is a sweet senior kitty looking for her forever home. When she returned she came back with an inhaler. It needs to be administered twice a day and she is fairly easy to treat.

Momma is a sweet and charming cat with her foster mom and dad but requires some adjustment time with new people. She does not let her true, wonderful, entertaining, sweet personality show when meeting potential adopters.

You should see her with humans she trusts--once she is comfortable she is a delightful cat, funny, entertaining, and vocal. She will listen to how your day was and will tell you all about hers. She also loves to be brushed! She follows her foster mom around the house. Helping with laundry is one of her very favorite things.

A beautiful girl with gorgeous green eyes, her legs are on the shorter side, which makes her unspeakably cute!

She would prefer to be an only cat but does very well with older, smaller dogs.

Sheba hopes there is a patient person out there who will look beyond her initial shyness, recognize her true lovebug spirit, and give her the time she needs to adjust.

Will you make her dreams come true? She's such a good sport and has been waiting for so long.

If you are interested in meeting Momma or getting more information about her let us know.

More about this rescue

St. Louis Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue group focusing on saving pets from local animal control facilities and other neglect situations.

We do not have a facility. All of the pets we rescue are in loving foster homes. Foster homes provide love, care training, and, if needed, rehabilitation to the pets. This also allows the pet to be more adjusted when they enter their forever home since they are used to a home environment (versus a kennel at the pound).
