Hello, my name’s MELODY. I’m a special needs pussy cat, and I’ve been in long term emergency boarding for such a long time, patiently waiting for my turn to have a foster family, or forever home. I only have one wish …someone to give me a chance to be their foster pet. I would love to be part of family, even if only for a while. My family, SPRA, love me and they worry about me being in boarding so long. Can you help me?
This is my story….I’m a pretty blue and white girl born approx 2007. Sydney Pet Rescue and Adoption took me into foster care when my family planned to take me to the pound, when they were moving to the US.
SPRA took me in because they knew that being a special needs pussy cat, I would have been put to sleep at the pound straight away. Lots of people don’t realize, but pets surrendered to the pound by their owners can be put to sleep straight away. Hard to believe..but that’s what happens. Anyway..I was one of the lucky ones.
At the time my family surrendered me, I was very overweight and a sad pussy cat. Sydney Pet Rescue thinks that I was likely a cruelty case. It took a long time, with kindness and patience from my foster carers, to help me learn to trust people, and for me to get down to my ideal weight, but I did! We learned that I am one of those pussy cats that prefers to be an only cat, though I might be ok with one other laid back pussy cat. We also learned that the sort of home or foster home that I do best in is a quiet patient caring home, without children or other pets, though one other laid back pussycat might be ok too. Because of my special needs, it’s been so hard for me to find just the right foster home or forever home.
I did really well with my last foster carer, and I showed that I have a sweet affectionate side. I used to love to sit beside my last foster carer on the sofa or especially to roll about on my lambswool and to play with my mouse. I was happy and my confidence really grew when I was with her. I had to go into emergency boarding at Puss n Boots more than a year ago when she couldn’t look after me anymore. Puss n Boots have taken excellent care of me, but I’ve been waiting such a long time for my turn to have a foster carer or forever home.
I just know there’s a foster home or forever home for me…somewhere. If you are an experienced cat carer and have room in your heart, and your life for a little girl like me, even if only for a while, please contact my family, Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption on 0403 254 960 for more information
Thank you for reading my story. Love from Melody x x
PS. I come with a hamper of Goodies and good support from my family SPRA.
PPS. Even if you can’t take me, if you could take one of SPRA’s other foster cats, that might free up a space with an experienced foster carer for me. I’ll keep my paws crossed. 🙂
