a.k.a - anybody want a cat?
I'm in a real pickle here. All the no-kill shelters are full to the brim and can't take the little calico stray. She got a clean bill of health from my vet this morning, and a set of vaccinations. I have tramped all over the neighborhood with her picture, but no one is claiming her. I even checked with three local vets to see if anyone had lost a cat. I can't figure out where she came from unless someone got tired of dealing with her and didn't want to pay to have her spayed, so they dumped her. And in my opinion, there's a special circle of hell for anyone who would do that.
She's too good a cat to end up a throwaway. She's affectionate, clean, well litter trained, playful, and mannered. She didn't even have a flea. She has definitely been in someone's house somewhere because she keeps mounting campaigns to get into the kitchen from the garage. She knows what's in there - a warm house!
My plan is to have her spayed so that with that expense out of the way and a current vaccination record, she would be an easy sell for adoption. She's on the surgery schedule for Monday, and after recuperation I will post her on Petfinder, on the local pet placement center website and in every local vet's and pet store's bulletin board. In the meantime, she can live in my backyard and the garage. I don't know what else to do.
I'm serious about asking if anyone wants a cat. If you're in the east Tennessee/north Georgia area, leave me a comment and we can talk. I want to find a loving home for her, and I'll deliver!
