Meet Dos

In mid-September the shelter took in four cats from the home of a woman who lost her battle with cancer. She had rescued a stray family of cats many years ago, and when she became ill last year and could no longer care for all the cats, we took in four of them, and the original four all found homes. Three of her remaining beloved cats, Uno, Piglet and Annie all found homes, leaving Dos all alone at the shelter. She lost her lifelong lady love, and now all of her cat family has moved on to new homes.

We’ll be frank: She’s a charity case. She is very timid, but not at all feral. She was most likely the low cat in the pecking order in her previous large family of cats and acts accordingly — very submissive, and prefers to just find a private place to sit and nap where she won’t be in anyone’s way. She’s fine with other cats but is just very shy with her new human companions at the shelter. She enjoys being pet, but we have to go find her in a cozy to give her love — she won’t come and seek it from us. She’s an easy shelter cat — because she is so docile and prefers to stay out of the way, she spends most of her time out and requires very little work, except when we need to go find her to give her some attention.

She’s not a good candidate for a very active home with children or one with dogs, but she would be fine living in a quiet home with another cat. A much younger semi-social cat at the shelter likes to go and curl up next to her, and she doesn’t seem to mind his company one bit. But we can’t say if she’ll ever form a strong bond with another human. Possible if she’s the only cat in the home she’ll come to understand that she’s no longer last in a long line of cats, but we can’t really know that. Dos just needs a deeply compassionate person to invite her into their quiet home and let her live her life in safety and peace.

Dos is 10 years old, is spayed, current on vaccinations, box-trained and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is in good health for a cat her age, with no signs of chronic health issues. For more information on Dos, please email ClayvilleCritters@cox.net, call the shelter at (401) 647-7200, or stop in to see her during visiting hours — Tuesday through Friday 7 to 11 am, and Saturday 10 am to 3 pm.
