Adoption Announcement – 8/13/2017 

Hi, everyone! This is Sue Ellen, with a wonderful story to share with you!

Let me start with the most important part: My sheltie sister, Bonnie, and I have been reunited. Our wonderful new mom has officially adopted me and will be adopting Bonnie, too, very soon! We lost our prior mom a few months ago to a terminal illness, so we came into the Safe Place for Pets program to await a new forever home. But since Bonnie is a dog, she went to a foster home, and I came to the Safe Place Welcome Center, where the cats live. Bonnie joined our new mom first to start pre-adoption, and when our new mom learned that we were a pair, she wanted us to stay together and I joined them very soon after. Bonnie and I were so happy to see each other again–I don’t think I have ever seen her tail wag so fast!

And my story gets even better! Just like our prior mom, our new mom is a retired nurse, and her name is Bonnie, just like sheltie Bonnie. And my name is one that has a family connection, but I have been told that I am a “very nice” Sue Ellen. And to make it even better, I am part Siamese, so now my new mom has the Siamese cat her late husband had suggested so many times during their life together. It sure seems that all of us were meant to be together!

I spend my days now lounging in the biggest cat tree I have ever seen, sleeping with Mom and Bonnie at night, sitting in Mom’s lap, taking sun baths, and playing with yarn and lots of cat toys! And a game of chase through the house with my sheltie sister is always great fun! Life is wonderful again and I am a very happy kitty! I want to say a big thank-you to Fillmore Veterinary Hospital and Buxton Veterinary Hospital (Safe Place for Pets vet partners), all the dedicated Safe Place volunteers, and especially our new mom for all their loving care! And thank you, Safe Place volunteers, for the very soft Snuggly fleece blanket—I just might share it with both Bonnies!

Adoption Bio – 7/19/2017

I am a very pretty Siamese tortie point mix, spayed female. The vet said I am approximately 10 years old. I am a petite girl and weigh 8.8 lbs. I am up-to-date on my shots, including feline leukemia since I was an indoor/outdoor cat and have received the shot in the past. 

As the volunteers at Safe Place get to know me, they will update you on my personality. For now, they know that I am friendly, loving and enjoy attention. I lived with a dog before I came to Safe Place.

Contact the nice volunteers at Safe Place for Pets to find out more about me and/or to visit me? Email info@safeplacepets.org or call them at 719 359-0201.
