Betty Lou Found Her FurEver Home Today!

I was so happy to get a call yesterday from a lady who was interested in adopting Betty Lou!  She’s very sweet & lost 2 other very elderly kitties of 17 over the last couple of years.

After her last kitty passed, her Sheltie pup (of 13 yrs.) seems to be depressed & missing the company of the kitties he was used to in the house.   She also assured me that her previous kitties had always been dominant in her household.  LOL!

Betty Lou is a very friendly, sweet girl but definitely is one to set the boundaries as well.  Ask any of our volunteers how difficult she is to get back into her cage when playtime is over.  But she’s more than happy to get a belly rub or a good brushing!  She’ll give lots of head bumps, nose bops & Purrszz for that.

But if she’s not ready to go back in her cage (which is N.E.V.E.R) or you manage to coax her using all kinds of bribes back into her cage, she is not hesitant in the least to growl in protest.  When you pick her up.  Which is never a comfortable feeling when you’re holding 16 lbs. of unhappy cat or ANY size cat for that matter.

I don’t care how friendly a cat may be otherwise, when you are holding one who’s growling in your arms – size doesn’t matter – you might as well be holding a ticking time bomb.  Trust me – Been there, done that, so I speak from experience(s).

De clawed or no (as Betty Lou is), the back claws & teeth do more damage anyway – FYI.  Ha!

Many Thanks to Kimberly D. who finalized Betty Lou’s adoption this morning!


Enjoy your wonderful FOREVER HOME BETTY LOU!

All Our LOVE Goes with YOU!
