Indies looking for a home

Many pets enter through the doors here at the Woodford Humane Society every year. Most are short-term residents, some pets find their new forever home in only a day or two, others take a couple weeks, and some take a few months. Sadly, there are a few pets that spend a year or more waiting for their forever home. They are commonly looked over because of their size, breed, age, or even their desire for attention. Indie happens to be one of these overlooked pets.

At the age of two and a half years, she is no longer a tiny, cute fuzzy kitten. She is however, a beautiful full grown, brown swirl tabby with bright green eyes. How does someone overlook her you ask? It may be the fact she is not the loudest cat or the most demanding of attention. It could simply be that she enjoys snuggling up in a warm cozy spot snoozing these chilly days away. She does have a spunky side to her when it comes to her favorite toy - feathers. She perks up and turns into a playful kitty at just the sight of a fluffy feathered toy.

Back in October of 2016, Indie first came through our doors. Indie is our longest-term resident, just shy of 500 days in our care. She is patiently waiting her turn to leave the Adoption Center forever and live in the luxury of a home. She was shy and confused at first, but never turned down a good scratch around the ears. Indie had a rough couple of first days here at the Adoption Center. We found out she had bladder stones that were causing her discomfort and needed to be removed. She has since been in great health but will need to continue to be on a special diet to ensure she stays stone-free.

We believe Indies forever family is out there and it’s just a matter of time before they walk through our doors looking for her. When that time comes, she will be here waiting with open kitty paws and a soft purr. Indie is truly a special girl and she deserves a loving family she can share her abundance of love with.

There is truly no rhyme or reason why some pets find their homes faster than others. As for Indie, she is happy waiting her turn. If you feel that she is the perfect fit for your family, stop by the Adoption Center today and visit with her. We are open six days a week – Tuesday through Friday 12 – 6 p.m. and weekends 12 – 5 p.m. For more information about Indie or any of our other pets, feel free to contact us at manager@woodfordhumane.org.
