I Want to Be Alone
From the SPA
By Joan DiPiero
Although I’ve been told that Greta Garbo never actually uttered the famous words “I want to be alone,” if some of our felines could speak, they would definitely echo that sentiment. Forget sharing special moments and bonding with other cats. We have four loving girls who hope to be the only child in your family and become the focus of all your attention.
Simone arrived in April, eight months old and facing imminent motherhood. Although only a kitten herself, she proved to be a loving and nurturing mom. Now that her four kittens are weaned, she would love a cat-free home with humans to nurture her. A lovely tabby and white girl, she soaks up human attention and is an easy girl to please with just a few head and chin rubs.
Susanna came to us already spayed, obviously once loved, and somehow separated from her family. An orange and white two-year-old with beautifully expressive pale green eyes, she is a lap hound who will sit contentedly until another cat enters her self-imposed private boundary. The growls come quickly, sending the interloper scurrying away. A bit territorial perhaps? Yes, but she’s 100 percent yours to love, so why would you want any other?
Her family abandoned Katya and since she’s such a lovely girl we can’t imagine why. Under a year old, this calico, mainly gray with peach, is tranquil and loves to sprawl out on her favorite sunny shelf to be petted. Decidedly chunky and proud of her curves, she offers more to love—hmm, much more.
Remi, about eight months old, is a stunner with her lustrous black coat and piercing green eyes. She is one of our best lap cats, and although she doesn’t dislike other cats, she prefers human companionship. Entering the adult area, we know she’ll be the first to greet us.
All these girls will make easy, stress-free pets. And think of the time you’ll save by not having to arrange all those weekly play dates. Meet them at the SPA, Los Pinos 7, 152 6124, any day, Monday-Saturday, between 11am and 2pm. Please remember that an anonymous donor has agreed to match July donations to the Pet Food Money Bank up to US$1,500! Now is the time to donate. All money raised will apply to the annual cost of feeding our resident animals (about 100 cats and dogs, waiting to be adopted, including the four highlighted in this article).
