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..
My name is Shelley and I have a 13-year-old Scottish Fold named Annie. I am in desperate need of finding my baby a home. (This is the HARDEST thing I've had to do!)
I bought Annie when she was 6-months old from a breeder who was in the process of doing away with her cattery, so I know I cannot reach out to her to see if she'll take her back. Annie is strictly an indoor cat that has been declawed (I know! I feel sooo bad for doing that!) and spayed. She has always been an "only cat" and we are a non-smoking home. She's not a lap cat and pretty much stays to herself unless she wants a treat. She lets me carry and love on her, but she's not much of a "people person" ...I mean, cat.
Over this past summer, she developed what I was told was like a fever blister on the cornea of her right eye. I've taken her to the eye specialist 3 times for this issue and was told we were better off letting her eye slough itself off, rather than do surgery. She can still see. She is up to date on all of her vaccinations and had blood work done a few months ago. She is perfectly healthy. Because she has always been an indoor cat, I think she still has several good years ahead of her. A month ago, we moved into a 2-story house and she even seems to have slimmed down a bit from going upstairs.
I've been discussing this issue with her vet since it started and there seems to be no other reason for her to be peeing, other than just behavioral. I asked if maybe it could be incontinence, but that doesn't seem to be the issue since she's not peeing in her sleep.
I worry about not finding her a home that's going to give her the love my family and I give her, but I can't keep her. I cannot risk my babies crawling into a pee spot. I can't have litter boxes all over the house and worry that they'll crawl into a litter box either.
Please help us. I don't want to send her to the SPCA or a shelter that's not going to find the best home for her. And I certainly don't want to put her down :'(
