Born ~2013, F, Tortie Point Siamese
When Lacey’s mom died her daughters couldn’t keep her and brought her to the shelter. It was no surprise that she was very sad and depressed. The shelter asked if we could help her. She is a perfect, sweet companion for someone who can offer her a little room in their home and heart. I said “Sure we can take her.” Someone will be so happy to have her gentle company.
Gentle is a good word for her. Her shyness and sadness reach out to your heart. Lacey is the name she came in with and it seems to suit her. She is an easy cat, a quiet presence. Well behaved. She is healthy and as a friend would say, “an easy keeper”. It is horrible being suddenly separated from your human and even more so if you are suddenly in a shelter’s stainless steel cage with a newspaper floor. Lacey expressed her stress in a typical cat way by over-grooming (comfort licking ) herself so there a couple areas on her flank where her hair is a little thin. It will come back as she relaxes into a loving home. We recently moved her out of her boring isolation room where, for safety, cats spend two weeks after being in a shelter. She is happier to be out more with us and, though shy, very grateful for attention and cuddles. She enjoys watching the birds at the feeders outside her window. She is ready for her new home.
She has been to the vet for an exam and she came thru with flying colors: no heart murmur and no health issues. I think her deep blue eyes are slightly crosseyed as is typical of many Siamese cats. We had a combo test taken at the vet for Feline Leukemia and FIV and she was negative for both. We treated her for fleas and for worms if she had any. I expect she has always been an inside-only cat.
Lacey needs a quiet home where ideally her adopters are home much of the time. Siamese make very loyal and bonded companions. I would suggest a home with no other pets and probably no bouncy children. She will fit right into the peaceful environment of her new home, a warm loving quiet companion. Some family will be so lucky.
Lacey eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Lacey is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, and microchipped.
She is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.
If you believe you are the perfect adopter for Lacey please tell us why in the comments section of our Adoption Application, and contact Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are unable to reach Harriet please email us at email@example.com.
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
