Delores is looking for a Forever Home
By Laura Bruck
If your idea of the perfect feline is a self-sufficient kitty who’s content to sit lazily in the window seat as you go about your day, and who accepts the occasional stroke under the chin with appropriate feline aloofness, 3-year-old Dolores is definitely not the cat for you. If, on the other hand, you’re longing for a companion whose sole purpose in life is to love and bring joy to her humans, then Dolores may well be your girl.
It’s because Dolores bonds so closely with people that she must have been devastated when her family could no longer afford to care for her, and made the heart-wrenching decision to give her away. And while there’s no doubt that she misses her previous life and loved ones, Dolores wasted no time bonding with PAWS foster mom Irene, and showing her the ins and outs of living with a true feline star.
Right from the start, and to Irene’s delight, Dolores made it clear that she expected to be the center of attention at all times. But unlike some pampered felines who sit and wait to be catered to, Dolores commands the spotlight by spending every moment of every day filling Irene’s life with love and laughter. Dolores is in her glory when she’s snuggled up in someone’s lap, but also enjoys amusing onlookers by tearing through the house with her favorite catnip toys. She always has something to say, and will let her humans know if their attention doesn’t come quickly enough.
Dolores can be protective of her humans, and sometimes swipes at other animals who approach and try to interfere with her snuggling sessions. It’s for this reason that Dolores would do best as an only pet. And because she sometimes gives little love nips when she plays, a home without small children would probably be best.
Despite Dolores’ self-appointed star status, she attempts to pay her good fortune forward by helping around the house—even if that means sitting on the garbage can or dustpan while meowing for attention. And while Dolores has yet to see a computer, Irene’s guess is that she’ll likely be the kind of cat who sits on the keyboard while her human tries to type—no doubt “helping” by checking for spelling errors.
Dolores may consider herself the star of the show, but this snuggly, charming little lap cat with personality to spare wants nothing more than to share the stage with a special someone who will treasure her forever. Please contact us below if you would like to adopt Delores or click HERE.
