It’s no secret that older cats often tend to be overlooked by adopters in favor of their kitten counterparts. But, if there’s one lady that truly shows just how loving senior pets can be, it’s Braveheart. There’s just something about her that pulls on the heartstrings of everyone she meets. She can be a little timid around strangers, but give Braveheart a minute to warm up and she quickly becomes her affectionate and social self. This sweet girl revels in pets and scratches—while leaning into your hands for more, Braveheart looks up at you longingly with those special eyes to let you know just how happy she is to be spending time with you. According to her previous owner, Braveheart is “extremely affectionate and loving” and likes to follow her human friends around. She enjoys spending lots of time in their laps and was even noted to sleep in bed with her favorite people! When it’s time to play, Braveheart loves ball toys but absolutely adores mice toys. Her kittenish side really comes out when she has the chance to get her paws on one of those little fake rodents!
Braveheart is looking for a special adopter who can open his or her heart and home to a special kitty. Diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, Braveheart may not live longer than six months to a year. However, how the disease progresses is variable in every cat and our veterinarians would be happy to speak with interested in adopters in depth. Braveheart would love nothing more than to spend the rest of her time—however much that is—in a safe and loving home where she’s the only pet.
