We felines get sad when our humans, for whatever reason, cannot take care of us anymore. An older human surrendered nine year old Vienna, along with her other feline family members, because they could not provide the proper care for them. Vienna did not like this, even though the kind humans at BARCS Animal Shelter in Baltimore tried to make her feel better.
But Vienna and the other felines in the group, including her best furiend Elvis, needed this. White coated humans treated Vienna right away for a flea infestation. The fleas nommed on her blood so much that she was anemic, furiends!
Not only was Vienna anemic, but she also had a large cyst over her eye which needed to be treated. Despite all of this, Vienna loved interacting with the humans taking care of her. These humans said she was a sweet, friendly, and cuddly feline.
Every time a human walked past the cage where she and Elvis were staying, Vienna would give them eye blinks with her pretty green eyes. She would also show off her little chirp meow and wave her fluffy tail around to get their attention.
It took a while, but Vienna’s efforts finally paid off. A kind human decided to give her the home she deserved. Soon, she and Elvis were adopted. And now, she has a home of her own.
Furiends, when you look to adopt, make sure you consider an older feline. They may not have as much time left with you as a younger feline, but they will definitely enjoy the time they have. And so will you!
