Cat of the Week: Thelma

Julia D Cat of the Week

Hey there, they call me Thelma or to some, I’m known as Thelma Lou. I was rescued from a frightful hoarding situation from a home with nearly 40 other cats. The nice volunteers of Last Hope have been taking care of me for the past year. For a while, all I wanted to do was hide. I was very scared of people and couldn’t bring myself to trust them. One thing for sure, I have felt comfortable hiding with other shy kitties and even enjoy a cuddle or snooze. In time, I started to enjoy pets to the head and rubs to my tummy. I even started to purr too! I became curious of people and felt a little more comfortable to not be in hiding as much of the time. I enjoy coming out to greet volunteers at feeding time now. I often like to stand on a perch and have a nice look around. I still enjoy my hiding and there’s work to be done but I’ve already come along ways. Even if I’m hiding, don’t be fooled, I still would love you to graciously greet me! I’m a sweet and very shy mature girl, looking for my second chance. I don’t ask for a whole lot. I would enjoy a quiet home with someone who will have the patience and love I need but also, perhaps, someone who can help me grow too. I would also enjoy another furry friend to cuddle with as it may help me transition better in my forever home. I may come across as I don’t want to be social, but it’s just not true. It means a lot to me when someone notices me!
