Sometimes all it takes is a little PR to get the word out about something wonderful. In this case, we are talking about a sweet cat that got really lucky at the right time. She was being brought to the to be dropped off with her litter of kittens, and was literally carried there in a cloth sack.
A quick-eyed volunteer for United Hope for Animals spotted her, and called me up, knowing that I had offered to foster a few kitties. I had heard that the shelter was overflowing with cats, and the odds weren't good of her getting out alive.
When I first laid eyes in her, I saw what a pretty cat she was, especially her eyes. One is green and the other gold. Her coat is a bright white and she has a light gray stripe on her head. Quite the looker! I decided to call her Jewel.
Jewel had a rough start in life, and was toughing it out on her own with her new litter in a sheltered spot near someone's garage. They fed her occasionally, but had no money for any type of veterinary care. When her litter arrived, they realized it was time to take them to a shelter.
When Jewel arrived at my house with her babies, it took all my wits to get them all treated and cared for and housed--but somehow we got through it. I had to quarantine them for a month before moving them into a larger space, but now they are fairly comfortable, with a little bit more room to roam.
Most of her kittens got adopted (her small kitten, Ava, is also available for adoption), but Jewel is still with me, and could use leg up to get her face "out there" so she can finally find her forever home.
Jewel is affectionate and serene. She loves to play with feather toys, lie in the sun, and will make any space look more elegant. She will great you with the most pleasant "trilling" sound and roll on her back to get a belly rub.
She would do well on her own or with other cats. She is non-agressive with other cats and could make a good second kitty. She could also be adopted with her older tuxedo kitten, Ava.
Jewel is spayed, up-to-date on shots, healthy and microchipped. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Jewel, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
