Elegant Female Feline Seeks Loving Home for Rest and Recreation
Chérie is my name. It means “darling” in French and I am definitely that and more. I am a raven-haired, petite lady-cat with the whitest whiskers you will ever see on a feline. My elegant look is completed with huge, golden eyes. Yes, I am gorgeous.
Chérie also means “cherished,” and I surely was. But somehow I got lost and very confused. I was found in Wakefield wandering in the middle of the street. The outdoor life was not fun. Some cats can adapt and take care of themselves, but not me. I did not know how to find food, and, consequently got very thin and weak. I was so thankful when a nice lady rescued me and called PAWS for help. Now, I have been checked by the vet and am gaining weight and getting my mojo back.
I hope this story finds me an adopter, or, better yet, my original family. Do you recognize me? If so, please call PAWS and let my original owners know where I am. And if not, why not adopt me? I know you are already thinking about it because I am so irresistible.
But first, I guess you want to know a bit more about me. While I am not a lap sitter, I am very attentive and curious about people. I will follow you everywhere in the house because I want to be right by your side, whatever you are doing. My other favorite thing (besides eating) is to curl up in a nice warm, soft spot for a nap. However, after my scary, foodless ordeal, mealtime is a top priority for me. I don’t know why people think cats are picky eaters. That definitely does not describe me!
I am also not one for jumping on counters or climbing up on your chairs. Ok, it could be that I’m a bit arthritic, but who isn’t a little creaky as they get older. The vets are guessing that I’m around 10 or 12 years old. But, I’ll never tell. I’m just hoping you have a special spot in your heart for mature kitties. And, if you do, you are exactly who I am looking for: someone who knows we still have lots of years and love to give and to receive. Many people agree that older cats are the best because, like me, they have worked out their ya-yas and are more settled, sweet and attentive to their humans than younger felines.
As far as other four-legged roommates, I don’t have a lot of interest in the cats or dog in my foster home, so I could probably blend into a family with other animals. But, I think I would l prefer to be your one and only. I just need your love, a warm bed to sleep on, and a steady meal plan. My wandering days are over. Forever home--here I come. Are you game? Then, call PAWS now, and make a date to see if we are a match.
By the way, PAWS has a number of wonderful, older cats who would make purr-fect and eternally grateful companions. So please tell your friends to call PAWS and ask about us.
To learn more about Chérie, or any of our other adoptable cats, kittens, or dogs, contact PAWS at (781) 246-6111 or PAWSwakefield@yahoo.com. You can also meet many of our available pets at our weekly adoption hours: Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital or at the Danvers PetSmart every Thursday and Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Last, but not least, we hold adoption hours at the PETCO in Woburn the first Saturday of every month from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.
Kitten Season is here and PAWS is having a KITTEN PARTY every Saturday at the VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital. We are currently taking in many pregnant mothers and abandoned kittens and we really need you to come adopt so we have room for more animals in our foster network. We also need foster homes, so if you are interested in fostering, please contact PAWs to get more information and an application. The need is great and you can help now by adopting, fostering, or donating (kitten supplies are much needed and so are the funds to purchase them).
PAWS is an all-volunteer animal welfare organization. Founded by the late Esther Nowell in 1982, PAWS responds to animal-related needs in many communities north of Boston. Our top service areas include Wakefield, Lynnfield, Reading, North Reading, Saugus, Stoneham, Woburn, Winchester, and Malden. Our mission is to promote and protect the rights and well-being of all domestic animals and wildlife, and foster a greater understanding of animal welfare and animal rights through education. PAWS receives no local, state or federal funding. Our budget is completely funded by our membership dues, adoption services, annual fundraising efforts, and kind donations from friends and members.
