Poor Gooseberry had a rough start. She was rescued from a hoarding situation where she spent most of her life in a crate. When she arrived at Animal Friends, Gooseberry was very dirty, had an upper respiratory infection and her paw pads were burned from being constantly soaked in urine. She was sick and in pain.
One can easily understand why it's hard for Gooseberry to trust people now. Our humane officers found her to be very fearful and nervous. She spent her first several weeks here recovering from illness. The entire time she was being medically treated, she was poked and prodded and had to have medication forced upon her.
Now it's time for her to be loved. She has warmed up to the volunteers who are doting on her with TLC. She responds well to treats and has begun to associate them with nice people. She lived with so many other cats before that now she'd definitely prefer to be an only princess in a home. She wants to be pampered as an only child...no other pets or small children. She'd love to have a windowsill to watch the birds, enough food in her stomach and a person who loves her.
Gooseberry is looking for her forever home. Could it be yours?
Come visit her at Animal Friends!
