BEEDY - Offered by Owner - Friendly Senior Gal needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping her get a new start?
Please Note: This animal is listed as a courtesy to another organization. Please be sure to contact the foster/caretaker for more information about her.
Beedy is a cat with a lot of personality — sweet and spicy. She has an adorable little lip curl which makes her look like a grump at times, but she’s a softy at heart. She’s a moderate-energy adult kitty who still can be rather playful, especially when a ribbon toy, laser, or catnip are in the mix! She loves getting pets under her chin and around her head, or along her body with a grooming mitt, but not on her fluffy white belly (which she loves to show off)! Beedy is a total purr machine, so you’ll know when you’re doing something she likes. She also loves to go outside and is very good at staying close but a catio would be preferred for her safety.
She bonds well with people and is typically friendly and engaging once she warms up. She's always gotten cuddly with housemates, friends, and pet sitters who have spent a good amount of time around her. Currently Beedy lives with another cat and a dog. She adjusts well to other pets with a gradual introduction process (introducing them to each other's smells, then spaces, then to each other directly). I would say her demeanor towards other animals is tolerant/ambivalent though, not overtly friendly and engaging. She has not been around young children, but I would suspect that she would not be the best fit for a home with small kids as she can get defensive in situations where she feels aggressively approached. She has been fine around older children.
Something to be aware of with Beedy is that she’s a cord chewer — usually with thinner cords/charging cables, I think because they’re more string-like. It’s important to keep those up and out of the way or hidden behind furniture with her around.
We’re looking for a new home for Beedy because my partner suffers from severe cat allergies. We’ve tried many medical interventions and cleaning protocols, but nothing has been effective to provide him enough relief. The ideal homes would be ones where they are enthusiastically welcomed and loved. They don't need to go to the same home. Although they get along fine, they are not bonded. Thanks for taking the time to read!
