Millie Faye is approximately 11 years old. I have inherited her from my Godmother who passed away in July of this year. Millie was with her for the past 10 years and was very loyal to my Godmother.
The things I know about Millie is that while my Godmother was alive Millie would not let anyone else pet her or come near her. Millie was always very skittish and usually hid in my Godmother’s bedroom while anyone else was in the house. My Godmother was retired and widowed so there were no other people who were at the home full time. There was however 3 dogs and two more cats which seemed to be fine with Millie. I literally never touched Millie until the morning my Godmother passed.
Millie had sat on my Godmothers bed the last two days that she was alive and never left her side. The morning she passed Millie let me pet her and help her down from the bed as the nurses were taking care of my Godmother. From there I brought Millie home as I had promised my Godmother I would not euthanize her and would make sure she was in a loving home.
The things I was told about Millie by my Godmother was that Millie had separation anxiety and would urinate on the bed and other furniture when left alone for an extended period of time. Millie has had every test done by the vet to make sure this is not a medical issue and the vet assured my Godmother this was a temperament issue not physical.
Millie is declawed, liter box trained except she is very particular of her litter box and it must be cleaned daily or she will find another spot to do her business. I have two very large boxes so that she will have either at any time she likes. Millie seems to get along with my husband and me but does not prefer others to play with her. She has been urinating on everything I have including me while I am asleep. She has done this now twice and I am not sure why except that we are gone at least 13 hours a day working and driving to and from work. She may even be grieving my Godmother but that I am just speculating about.
She is a beautiful and loving cat but she must have someone who is home full time, possibly someone retired.
Millie is spayed and declawed. We believe she is up to date on shots, but I could not find any paperwork, so I am unsure about the shots..
I have a Scottish Fold named Nelson. He is about 9 years old, neutered, and is current on shots. He had a full panel of blood work done in December and nothing was abnormal.
I work at a vet clinic in Fort Worth. One day Nelson and his 2 siblings were surrendered to us by our client, who had been with us since he was a kitten. The other 2 cats found homes right away. After several months, I decided to bring him home. I already had 2 cats and he was used to living with 2 cats, so I thought he would adjust.
Unfortunately, Nelson and my female do not get along and the situation has gotten increasingly worse. The female is so aggressive towards him that Nelson always hides, either under my bed or on the pillow behind me. I have to put food and water under the bed so he will eat and drink. My bed frame is too low to put a real litter box under it – he is too scared to come out to use a regular litter box. As a result, I tried to use baking sheets and potty pads under the bed. That was inadequate and the carpet is now ruined.
I’m changing apartments the beginning of April and I can’t take him with me. If he isn’t placed by April 1st, he'll live at my work again. I don’t want to turn him into a shelter.
Nelson is very sweet. He enjoys cuddling and will “lick your hand to death” after you scratch his chin. He deserves a home where he will be loved and feel safe.
