Anna was surrendered to our rescue with her housemate Tommy over Easter weekend 2017. One of their owners passed away in April 2016, and the wife was hospitalized and moved into a nursing home facility. Both cats were scheduled to be euthanized unless an animal shelter or rescue group agreed to take the pair, as the couple had no adult children or friends to take in their two cats. Anna is the queen bee and does not like any cats other than Tommy. However, Anna and Tommy do not need to be adopted together. Anna is an affectionate and bossy senior spayed female cat with the markings of both tortoiseshell and brown tabby. Anna was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in March 2020 when she had an extensive senior work up because of her dramatic weight loss. Anna's hyperthyroidism is well controlled with medication. Anna is on 2.5 mg oral Felimazole twice a day that she easily takes as a treat inside a pill pocket, and she will need to be on this medication for the rest of her life. Anna is still enjoying life as a sassy cat, and even will put much larger Tommy in his place. She is feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus negative. Anna would do best in a home with no other cats or young children. She has had brief encounters with a lab mix dog, and adjusted must better to the dog than to the other cats in the home.
