We originally took Gypsy in back in September 2014 when her owner from Waterloo, Iowa, could no longer keep her. She was adopted in February 2015. Her adopter moved and could not take her with so we took her back in March 2019. Gypsy is up to date on shots, tested FeLV / FIV negative, and spayed. She is living in a foster home again.
Gypsy was 4 years old when we first took her in so she is now about 9 years old as of October 2019. The foster home has waited to list her online as adoptable again because Gypsy was very upset when we got her back. She lashed out, was angry, hissed, wanted to attack anyone that came near. She is better now, more settled in. She still can be moody so you want to pet her on her own terms. She likes her head stroked when she comes to you for attention. She is not one to be picked up or held. She is in a small room alone because she does not do well with other cats at all. She probably would not do well with dogs. She needs a home with no children, young or even older ones. Best if you do not have grandchildren that come to visit. You need to be a very experienced cat person to adopt Gypsy. It needs to be you and her forever. She needs a quiet home so someone that hardly ever has company would be best. We need to find a crazy cat lady or crazy cat man for Gypsy. Someone that can give her space and let her be. But love her unconditionally and pet her when she is looking for attention. And someone that realizes it may take months before she allows you into her life. She is not a feral cat or even a semi-feral cat. She has been though trauma in her life and people have let her down. She needs someone that can help her heal. It will take time for her to trust you but once she does, it is so worth it.
Her next home must be a forever home! And with someone that will not get any other pets or have children during the rest of Gypsy's life. Cats can love to be 20 so Gypsy potentially has another 11 years or so.
Gypsy's adoption fee is $75.00.
WE ARE A NO-KILL 501-C-3 NON-PROFIT RESCUE. All donations are tax deductible. We do not have a shelter. All pets live in foster homes. We only adopt to indoor homes. To see an animal, you must fill out an application first and then once approved, we can set up for you to meet the animal you are interested in. We do background checks on all applicants. If you have assault, domestic abuse, or drug charges please do not apply. If you have questions, please send an email to email@example.com
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. $250 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.
