Zoey is, we believe about 12 years old, could be older, or younger. She was found fending for herself locally. She fortunately found some good Samaritans who were feeding her, but she was not doing well as an outdoor cat.
She was rescued by CCAR, though in poor condition; extremely matted and very frightened. She closed down for many months because of the trauma of her situation. With love and patience, she started to come out of the shell she had built around herself.
It is obvious she was once a much-loved cat for she has cause to believe she is entitled to attention and adoration on a minute-by-minute basis. She loves to be held and snuggles her head into your neck. Zoey is a wonderful, even tempered and gentle companion. Her only goal in life is to get as much cuddle-time as possible and to eat.
She is long-haired and needs to be groomed daily. Fortunately, she loves to be brushed and does not fuss about having her claws trimmed. She gets along well with other cats and has been living peacefully with four others for buddies.
When CCAR rescued her it was discovered that she had severe arthritis in her spine, requiring twice daily oral medications to keep her comfortable and a monthly subcutaneous injection, none of which are very expensive and she is easy to medicate. As a result, anyone who adopts Zoey must be comfortable with medicating a cat and handling a syringe. Both of these things Zoey tolerates well, and she’s more that worth the effort.
Please refer to CCAR ID# L18-230 when inquiring about Zoey.
