Cat of the Week: Pippy

Julia D Cat of the Week

Pippy (aka Pipsqueak when she was a kitten) is a chirpy and beautiful 2-year old female cat with (rare) gorgeous, inquisitive light blue eyes- and freckles! As a kitten, she was bottle-fed by a rescue volunteer and eventually adopted. Unfortunately, Pippy was returned to Last Hope through no fault of her own and is looking for her forever home (again). Pippy is an affectionate gal who will “kiss” the tip of your nose, and roll over to have her belly rubbed. She can be a bit shy in unfamiliar environments, but once she has learned she can trust you, she is friendly and outgoing.  She hasn’t lost her kitten-like spunk, either. She can be very playful.

She was separated from her brother (whom she was bonded to) when she was surrendered back to Last Hope, which has been traumatic for her. She may bond with another cat in the future, as she is used to having another cat companion in her environment. She has been around young children and a cat-friendly dog, but is pretty timid around them (not terrified, but shy). She would be a wonderful companion for a quieter home, perhaps a senior, or older couple, or a family with older children. She gets along well with mellow cats and cat friendly dogs. She needs someone who is dedicated to keeping her at a healthy weight as she became morbidly obese at her former home. She is now at a much healthier weight.
