GuelphToday, in partnership with Purrfect Companions of Norfolk and My Kitty Cafe, brings you this feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Purrin and Zia
Purrin is about three years old. This dapper young tuxedo boy is an easy-going friendly fellow once he’s adjusted to a new environment. It’s no wonder he’s cautious when in new surroundings given his background.
Purrin was one of several cats surrendered last October to Purrfect Companions after being rescued by Animal Control along with many dogs from a terrible hoarding situation. Purrin took some time to adjust at our shelter – initially he was very upset being confined and would try to escape his kennel when the volunteers cleaned it.
Once his vetting was completed, Purrin graduated to a large walk-in kennel at the shelter where he got along well with all the other kitties and was the first to greet volunteers and visitors entering. Purrin has now come to my Kitty Cafe to begin a new chapter in his life.
He’s here with Zia, a female kitty who is possibly his sister and was rescued from the same environment. Purrin can’t tell us all about his traumatic past; we do know that he is very frightened of dogs and must be adopted into a dog-free home.
Once she’s comfortable with you this pretty tuxedo girl will come for pets and roll on her back to show the white fluffy fur on her belly. Although initially shy with strangers, there’s definitely a very affectionate and cuddly sweetheart just waiting to emerge once she knows you.
The first few years of Zia’s life was a time of hardship and this has caused her to take some time to adjust and trust in new situations. However, Zia’s sweet spirit has remained gentle despite her traumatic early life. This petite girl came to Purrfect Companions shelter along with Purrin and another kitty from a terrible dog-hoarding situation last October.
Once her vet appointments were completed, Zia lived in a large walk-in kennel at the shelter with Purrin as well as other cats. This sweet girl requires a calm home and an understanding adopter who will give her the care and love she so deserves. Zia gets along well with other cats but should be adopted into a home without dogs.
They don’t have to be adopted together.
