Sable came from a hoarding environment with many other cats, and when she arrived, she was underweight, sick with an upper respiratory illness, and had parasites. She has since received vet care and is feeling a hundred times better!
Sable was very shy and nervous at first and will likely need time to adjust in her new home. She can still be easily startled and may like to have a hiding place to feel safe in the beginning. Once she adjusts to her new environment she is very playful and loves rocketing around her kennel chasing her toys or wrestling with the other cat. She loves to be pet and is a purr machine once she gets to know you but can play hard to get until she learns to trust you. Given time and some love she will make a wonderful, fun little companion.
Cats at the property they came from tested positive for upper respiratory illnesses such as calicivirus and mycoplasma bacteria, as well as roundworms and ear mites. She was treated for the roundworms, ear mites, and mycoplasma, but adopters should be aware that though she is now symptom free, there is a small possibility calicivirus can remain in a cat’s system for life and may flare up in times of stress (causing sneezing, runny nose, etc) or she may stay symptom-free for the rest of her life. We recommend she be kept as an indoor only cat, and either be the only cat in her home or live with felines who have already been exposed to this virus or are fully vaccinated. We can go over Sable’s medical history in more detail with potential adopters during our adoption counseling session.
An adoption counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
Do you think you could be Sable’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1. Call ahead and then visit our centre to meet this pet, learn more about their ideal match and apply to adopt in person; or
2. Submit an online application https://spca.bc.ca/survey/cat-adoption-application-quesnel/ and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit!
Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their interest. We are not able to contact all applicants.
