INSPIRATIONAL QUEEN DIMP(LES) NEEDS A FOREVER HOME
Dimples is a perfect queen cat in the NYC area that needs a permanent home. She is only 2-3 years old, so this will be a 10-15 yr commitment.
Ideally, her home will be a family (she hates moving), or a settled, stable couple or single person. The home needs other cats (1 or more—talk to me about introducing new cats). Dogs are alright as long as they are VERY CALM and you have a large living space (won’t be close quarters).
NOW FOR DIMPS’ INSPIRATIONAL STORY…
Dimples suffered trauma as a kitten and ended up on the euthanasia list at ACC (animal control) at 1 year old. I don’t know the extent of her trauma, but it must have been severe, as she was the most terrified cat I’ve met in my life. I took her in as a foster and she hid on top of my cabinets for three months straight. She would come down at night when everyone was asleep to use the litter box. I had to put food up against the ceiling cabinets so she might eat (she rarely did).
No one knew she was even in the apartment. Slowly but surely, she started to come down more and more. She was terrified of humans, refused to be touched, and would run back to the cabinets at the drop of a hat. Her flat lil face and freckles were breaking everyone’s hearts.
Fast forward: as of today, Dimp allows me to pick her up, pet her, scratch her head. She watches TV with us, sits on the cable box, meows and screams for food, and prances around. I love this girl so much that I am crying as I write this. In an ideal world, I would keep her, but I have a puppy she is scared of/hates and will probably be moving unimaginable amounts in her lifetime. She is a perfect cat and I need to find her a perfect home. She will require patience and you will need to gain her trust. Not pushing her to be comfortable is the most important thing.
Please reblog reblog reblog and share with anyone you know (friends, family, coworkers) that you think may fit her needs and have them email me directly at email@example.com
This adoption will technically have to go through the cat rescue I work with, so there will be a $125 adoption fee, but if that’s a problem we can talk. (Remember, though, pets are expensive.)
