This spectacular senior is Stella, and she is an absolute treasure. She came into care as a hungry stray, and very quickly showed how grateful she was to be inside with yummy food. Stella is a calm, and loving cat that enjoys having her human around to give endless head scratches and pets. While in foster, she has spent time around small senior dogs and she seems to be content with them being around. It’s likely that she wouldn’t mind if her new forever home had a calm small dog for her to become friends with. Long warm naps, snuggles, and tasty treats are all things Stella is looking for in her forever home.
Since coming into the care of the Shuswap BCSPCA, Stella was found to be hyperthyroid, which is managed with medication that is given twice a day. Stella is very food motivated and happily takes her pill in delicious salmon flavoured Pill Pockets. If you have room in your heart and home to give Stella the retirement home that she deserves, please contact us!’
