October is Adopt a Shelter Pet Month, and we know a real sweetie who has been waiting way too long for her forever home. Her name is Swizzle, and we introduced you to her in July 2014. She was waiting at PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society) of Connecticut for her perfect family to discover her. At that time we began sponsoring her and welcomed her to the family as an honorary Kitty Blue. You can read that original post here. I knew I would continue to sponsor her for as long as it took for her to find that special home; though, I never expected her to be waiting more than a year later.
If you read The Cat on My Head regularly, you know that I have featured Swizzle here several times. Our dear friend Kevin (meowmeowmans) and his wife Tracey visit and give her loving often as well as share photos with me. Kevin kindly featured her just two days ago on his blog, Animal Shelter Volunteer Life. Yet, Swizzle continues to wait. This is what she has to say:
Here’s part of Swizzle’s bio from the PAWS website:
I was adopted from PAWS with my sister when we were just eight weeks old. She passed away some time ago and I’ve been lonely. After six years, I’m back at PAWS because my owner had to move to a place that did not allow pets. I miss my owner. But things can only get better, right?
I have tons of love to bestow on a new person. I just love to be brushed and petted! Sometimes I’m playful, I love the track ball, but mostly, I’m happy to just sit next to you. Rub behind my ears and I’ll purr happily with my head against your leg. What could be better than that? I don’t mind being picked up, but I’m not a lap cat. I do not like dogs at all. I’ve lived with older children (tweens). I can be tolerant of other cats, but nobody can replace my sister. I’m indoors only. I do not like loud noises and can be jumpy at times.
Swizzle is now about eight years old, spayed, FIV/FeLV negative and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations.
If we didn’t have a full house, I’d drive to Connecticut, pick her up and bring her home to Virginia. Since I can’t do this, don’t you have room in your heart and home for his beautiful girl? If not, please share about her with your friends and family and on your blog if you have one. Let’s find this beautiful, sweet and deserving girl a home for the holidays.
