In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.
Baby is a very sweet, playful, and affectionate middle-aged cat. When not snuggled up under my chin or on my lap, she is patiently awaiting nearby with the hopes she'll have a laser beam to chase! Toys with cat nip, chin scratches, and belly rubs are also big hit with this lovely lady! Her personality is as big as she is, although she does need to lose a few pounds. Half of the reason I need to find her a new home is because I can't control her current food intake, which she quite enjoys, due to the feeding restrictions of my other cat. She overeats and he under eats!
The other reason I need to find this sweet girl a new home is because even after a year of all the tips and tricks I could follow, my existing cat and Baby don't get along. Despite being much larger than him, she is anxious and scared of him, which leads to frequent fighting. When I adopted her from the Anti-Cruelty Society a year ago, she had lived her prior 6 years as an only-cat. Judging from her behavior in my 2-cat household, I think she would be happiest in a single-kitty home. I have not seen her interact with children, but her prior owners had kids. They surrendered her because they were moving. She is very docile and isn't bothered by all the big hugs and squeezes I give her everyday, so I could imagine her being good with kids.
She had an annual checkup on 4/18/18 and is up-to-date with vaccinations. She received a clean bill of health, but needs a good teeth cleaning, which I already have scheduled. She has no history of health or behavioral problems aside from being terrified of other cats.
