Daisy is up to date on shots, tested FeLV / FIV negative, and spayed. She is living in a foster home. She is now about 2-1/2-years old as of May 2017.
Daisy was trapped on a rural Grundy County property in January 2016 along with 9 other cats/kittens who had been abandoned on the property and the owners were not willing to feed them. When trapped she was super scared and skittish. She was at the time estimated to be just under a year old, so to tame a feral down that was that age was going to be difficult. She took a bit to start to trust her foster mom, but eventually realized that she had a pretty good life now and became friendly and loving, loves to greet you with 'sweet little trills,' enjoys being petted and having her tummy rubbed (for a short time), loves to rub your legs and her absolute favorite greeting is to give you head butts and rub your forehead with her head! She is a real sweetheart, but will probably never like being picked up. She panics and wants nothing to do with being picked up. A home with no children is best,
Daisy gets along great with other cats! In fact, she does well with every cat she has ever met. She needs to start off in a room cage when you first get her. She will feel safer there. Once she starts to bond with you, then let her out in one room only. Once things go well in the one room, you can let her out into your whole house. This process is going to take several months. But once you gain her trust and win her heart, that is the best feeling on the world. She also may never like your friends or your company that comes over. She will hide when they are there.
Getting her to a vet can be a challenge, If she sees the pet taxi, she runs and hides. So I set it next to where she eats with a blanket on it for about a week. Came feeding time and I quickly grabbed her by the scruff and put her in. She is extremely freaked out in there. You will not want to try reach in and get her out. With the traveling in the car, she will be scared to death and may bite you. My vet sedated her when she got there so she could do a full exam, update her shots, check her teeth, ears, etc. This way no one gets hurt and Daisy is under so she is not stressed. After she came home, let her back out into one room and she did good at first. Took a day for her to be comfortable and feeling safe again. So she is a cat really only for a true cat lover, and one very experienced with shy and skittish cats.
She will need to be adopted into a home that already has a cat so that she has a cat friend. Or she really loves a kitty we have named Fozzie. He came from the same property that she came from. Actually if you adopt both of them together, I bet she will settle in faster than without Fozzie.
Will someone please adopt Daisy and give her a forever home? $95 adoption fee.

All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $200 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
