We Want You to Foster!

Big, beautiful, four-legged, furry woman seeks soul mate!

Do you have room in your heart and home for magnificent girl with an attitude?!

Izzie was rescued when we received a call to help the little cat because it was so cold out; expecting a kitten, we found a beautiful adult instead - and that's quite ok (vet estimates Izzie is 4-6 years old).

Izzie is a typical tortie, which means she has an attitude – she has “tortitude”. Izzie can be wonderfully sweet and then sometimes be a bit persnickety. She loves attention, wants to sit near you, sleep with you, and be a central part of your world. Do not think about closing that door behind you and not letting her into the study with you. She’ll even sit on the bathroom floor and keep you company while you shower or brush your teeth. You won’t be lonely with this lady around!

Izzie actually quite a good snuggler. She has the cutest little short tail (not quite 2/3 the length of an average cat tail) – which is how she gained one of her nicknames (Isabella Stumpy Tail). But we mean it with love – it’s actually quite a cute stumpy tail.

Because of her catitude, Izzie would be best suited to a house without young children. However, if you want unconditional love (95% unconditional love, 3% feigned indifference, and 2% cute kitty attitude), then Izzie is your girl.

Glad to help find Katie a new home. If I were to put a Donation button on my blog for raisng money for a pet deposit for her old owners - how much would we need to raise and is this possible? Seems like they really cared for her but had no money. We would like to help and I am sure others would too! And also I feature a shelter cat each week so let me know if you have one that really needs help finding a home. I try to rotate shelters.

The total pet deposit would be $400 -- we probably could have come up with that with help from a few other people. However, the family has realized they cannot afford the ongoing care of the cats (food, litter, vet care if they got sick), etc. and that is why they surrended them to us. When the family is in a little better place, we will help them with a great cat for their home.
