Backyard Cat Seeks Loving Human
Maisey is a 4-yr-old tuxedo female in excellent health. She is spayed, up to date on all shots, microchipped, and a street-smart mostly outdoor cat.
Her ideal human has no other pets or small children, and is happy to let her roam outdoors all day and let her in for snuggles at night. If you want a low-maintenance cat that will always hang out with you when you’re outside, and wants to come in for a little attention at night, Maisey is the perfect fit. Here are some of the things that make Maisey a cool cat:
- She is always on time for breakfast and dinner
- She comes when whistled for
- She is very polite about getting hand-fed treats, keeps claws retracted and takes food very gently
- She loooooves to give head-butts
- She is the perfect cat-napper, curling up on your shoulder for a short sleep or even all night
- She loves to hang out nearby whenever you’re outside
- She was born into a feral colony and was never touched by human hands until I picked her up one day when she was about 4 months old. She’s been hooked on people ever since.
- She is a chill cat, not a scaredy cat. She’ll just sit on her cat tree while the vacuum is running.
- Though she will complain 100% of the time anyone tries to pick her up, she has never attempted to bite or scratch.
For the right new owner/foster, Maisey will come with:
- A litter box
- A large bag of her favorite food
- Vaccine/microchip info
Why Are We Looking for a New Home?
In short, I believe that she will be much happier in a home with no other pets, as she doesn’t get along with my bonded pair of indoor cats. She is especially tormented by my dominant young cat who is always pouncing on her anytime she comes inside.
And yes, we’ve tried Feliway, lots of exercise, group feeding/praise, etc. They just don’t seem to get on even after years of experimenting. The only thing that seems to work is to let Maisey spend most of her day outside, which is where she prefers to be. Though this keeps the peace, we are moving across the country to a colder climate with more rain and snow so now is a good opportunity to see if there is a better environment for her.
I would never surrender Maisey to a shelter. A potential adoptee should have an adequate environment as well as good references.
If I can’t find a better home for her I am also looking for volunteers to foster her for 2 weeks or so until I can fly her up to join us.
