Little Kitty in the spotlight

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

At the glorious age of 10-and-a-half, Little Kitty is well overdue to find her forever home. She is a beautiful short-haired tortoiseshell with bright green eyes and a love for snuggling into her blanket and napping the day away. She enjoys grooming sessions and looking her best.

How does someone overlook such an amazing cat, you ask? She is very laid back and spends most of her day relaxing. She’s not one to talk out loud or be overly pushy for attention.

Back in January 2018, Little Kitty first came through our doors. She has been in our care for over seven months now and counting. She is patiently waiting her turn to step foot into her forever home and live the life of a princess. When Little Kitty first came to us, we were told that she was found as a stray and had been hit by a car before being taken in off the streets in 2008. She suffered a broken jaw, a punctured lung and partial facial paralysis.

Little Kitty healed up well, but she will always have some minor problems due to the facial paralysis: she can’t move her ears, her eyes don’t close completely, and she doesn’t have full range of motion in her jaw. As a result, she needs regular brushing, and at some point she may require eye drops. And to help ease her meal times, we have been feeding her softened food or wet canned food, which she loves.

She doesn’t hesitate to chow down, leaving her bowl clean. She will always need to be fed softened food or wet food to make it easy for her to eat.

We know it’s just a matter of time until Little Kitty’s forever family walks through our doors and scoops her up. Until that time comes she will continue to wait patiently for them with open paws. Little Kitty is truly a special girl and she deserves to be pampered by a loving family that doesn’t mind extra snuggles from a darling cat.

There is truly no rhyme or reason why some pets find their homes faster than others. As for Little Kitty, 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 6 days a week – Tuesday through Friday 12 to 6 p.m. and weekends 12 to 5 p.m. For more information about adopting Little Kitty or any of our other pets, feel free to contact us atmanager@woodfordhumane.org or 859-873-5491.
