Adoption Announcement Update – 7/8/2019

Hi everyone, it’s me Callie. I am sooooo happy to tell you I have finally found my fur-ever home. I had a rough start when I tried living with another cat. We really tried but I just prefer to have parents all to myself. Then I got sick from the stress of having to go back to Safe Place. But now I think it was worth it. I found my purr-fect mom and dad. I get all their love and attention and don’t have to share it with any one. I know that is selfish of me but that is how I like it and I definitely know what I like.

I am very demanding of mom and dad and let them know when I want love and when I’ve had enough. I have to say they are very accommodating and put up with me. I am, unquestionably, a cat and being finicky comes with the territory. Funny story, turns out I don’t LOVE pumpkin. Or most of the cat foods mom tried to get me to eat. She finally found the one I like and it ‘s not any of that prescription stuff either.

I love to have my belly rubbed and like to sleep on the sofa under the window where the cushion is sun warmed for me. I’m still cautious of strangers but have found the perfect hiding spot in dad’s closet. He says he’ll put my new Safe Place snuggly there for me to lay on.

I’d like to say thanks to all the cat care volunteers who took such good care of me and were so worried when I was depressed. Also thanks to Dr. Jones at Yorkshire Veterinary Hospital who helped me feel better. Off to take a nap and possibly some belly rubs. We’ll see how I feel later. Maybe yes, maybe no…..

Adoption Bio Update – 6/18/2019

Hello everyone. My name is Callie. I’m a 10 year old Maine Coon. I’ve been at Safe Place since March. I was the only pet of my mom’s when she passed away. I have always been very loyal to my mom and very shy when it came to other people. I tried going to a home with a married couple and another cat. That didn’t work out for me, it was just too much. I really shut down and had to come back to Safe Place.

Since I’ve been back, almost a month, I’ve been very depressed. I hide in the bedding closet and don’t enjoy playing with the other cats. The care takers at Safe Place put me on anti-depressants.

I so want to leave here and find a quiet home with no other pets so I can live my best life. I had my teeth cleaned and have all my vaccines and microchip. I had full blood work and urinalysis done and they all came back reporting I am healthy with one exception. I am hyperthyroid, which is very common in older cats, but I can still live a normal life with inexpensive medications twice a day in my food.

Please come by and visit. I can be coaxed out and will let you hold me. I’m sure that once I am in an environment that is comfortable for me that we could be good friends. I would love to get back to some TV watching like I did with my mom before she passed.

You can see my beautiful face peaking out of my kennel at 1520 N Hancock Ave during the Welcome Center open hours. Or email or call 719-359-0201 to make an appointment. I just need an understanding, patient person to give me a chance.

Adoption Bio – 3/20/2019

Hello everyone, my name is Callie. I’m not a calico and my mom is no longer around to ask so I don’t know how I got my name. My mom passed away recently and I was able to spend her last days with her. However my dad is now moving in with his daughter who is allergic to me. My family is very sad to have to give me up but I’m really looking forward to finding a new forever home.

I’m a 10 year old Maine Coon but on the small side for the breed. I’m a bit thin because I’m hyperthyroid, but I take one pill a day in my canned food – yum! I have the typical long, soft fur of a Maine Coon. I really enjoy looking good and like to have my beautiful coat brushed often. I’m not much of a lap cat but I like to cuddle up next to you and share the arm or back of the sofa. I don’t mind being held but the trip from the floor up to your arms scares me so make sure you give me a lot of support and make me feel secure before you lift me up.

I LOVE PUMPKIN! I can’t say it enough. I have it with my breakfast every morning to start the day out right. I also love to chase balls and feathers. I’m pretty calm most of the time but sometimes the mood strikes me and I get a bit crazy. I run around the kitchen and hide under the counter just for heck of it.

I’ve never had any siblings, feline or canine or human, so I don’t know how I would get along with them. I’m shy around strangers and hide in the closet when they visit. I think I would prefer a quiet home like the one I came from. If you’d love to sit and watch TV while I allow you to brush me I think we’d get along just fine. If you want to meet me, please call Safe Place for Pets at 719-359-0201 or fill out the form below.
