Hi, I'm Meredith! I am a gorgeous, tortoiseshell point siamese mix. I came into rescue off of the streets of River Rouge, after trying to sneak into a house where the dogs wouldn't be very nice to me. I had a beautiful litter of babies, each a different color! I really didn't like being a mom too much, so my foster mama took over their care for me.
I am Meredith's foster. Meredith was originally supposed to be a foster to adopt case, and I would really love to keep her, but am not sure my home is going to be the best for her long term. Meredith has some quirks, and I will be totally up front with them.
At the spay, she was discovered to have a grade 3 heart murmur, but her spay was successful. She has been on Prozac since her surgery. Meredith has received this due to anxiety in the home. This anxiety came from the birth of her kittens, her surgery, recovery, and decompressing to being in a foster home, after being an outdoor only cat. Prozac and a scratching post has proven to help her a lot, and she has done a 180 in personality since being medicated. Meredith loves to use her paws like hands, to hold you. She licks my face and likes to play with my hair. Meredith loves to talk, and will meow and chirp when you address her. The medication is about $10 a month, and may not need to be continued once she has been adopted into her forever home. She is currently housed with many other cats, dogs, and a child. While she does well in foster, she could do even better if she was in her own home, or with less activity than what she is currently exposed to. She is great with adult cats, and indifferent to the dogs. She would love to be in a home with somebody who is home often, as she does really love to cuddle and to make biscuits. She loves to be held and carried around, and will rub against your ankles for attention.
Meredith needs a taller litter box, as she likes to put her front paws on the edge while she does her business. She uses the box 100% of the time, she just prefers to stand and keep watch while she is in the box. We have tried to work on this by facing the litter box towards the doorway, so she can keep an eye on the point of entry and feel her safest. This is likely due to being an outdoor cat most of her life, and having to keep watch to keep herself safe. This may change the longer she is indoors, but we are not sure.
Meredith was not an attentive mother, and was not maternal to her babies. She does not like kittens. She likes adult cats, but does not like kittens.
Meredith is a gorgeous and loving cat, who deserves somebody who has lots of love to give. If this sounds right, please reach out and apply!
