"You're a Pip!" That's what her Dad said when she first got home as a kitten in 2008....and hence her name....she is a Pip! If you didn't know her actual age you would not think this cat is 10. Her dad passed away (1/9/18) and there is no family to take care of her permanently. Fantastic neighbors were going to visit her multiple times every day but she is a cat that is used to having her human around most of every day....adoring and petting her. A volunteer stepped up to foster her so she is now residing temporarily in a very comfortable foster home. She is an INDOOR ONLY cat...she has never been outside other than an enclosed deck.

Pip had two medical concerns (dental and pedicure needed) and those issues were resolved on Friday 1/12/18. Blood work was also done and there were NO issues there. Pip is ready to move onto the next chapter of her life with a new owner. She is available for immediate adoption. If you are interested in adopting her, please contact the Monroe County Animal Shelter and the foster will contact you to arrange a "meet and greet." (Shelter Hours are: T-F 11am-4:30pm and Sat. 11am-2pm 423-442-1015) OR contact the foster direct via email at 1catnut@gmail.com anytime. She has tested Negative for FeL/FIV, is spayed (as a kitten) and up to date on vaccinations (due again 6/2018) All medical records will be provided...Adoption fee is ONLY $40.

FOSTER REPORT: What a great, loveable, affectionate lap-cat. She is what's known as a "flopper." She will head your way when you sit down and then just flop down on her side so you can pet, scratch and brush her!...be aware....she flops just inches out of the human's reach so YOU have to move to her...She's a cat-that's what they do to let you know, that are in charge! She knows her name and will respond....it is suggested that her name remain the same, or very similar sounding for consistency (do this slowly).....she is perfectly litter box trained and requires a high sided litter box...she does kick some of the litter out with a low sided box. She is a very confident girl who is used to getting lots of attention....she does follow you around-sort of like a dog. Tap the brush on the couch or floor and she is on her way for you to groom her. Work with the vet to get her few extra pounds off...good diet and regular exercise (playtime) will be beneficial. She has lived with another cat but has probably never interacted with a dog.

Pip lived in the same house for 10 years...upon arrival at the foster home, she had no issues coming right out of her carrier and exploring her foster room (large bedroom). As long as she knows where her food, water, hands to pet her and litter box are, she should adjust very quickly to a new home.

Thank you to the shelter and Second Chance Pals for stepping up for Pip's "medical day" and giving her this golden opportunity to find happiness again.....unsure who will be happier; Pip or her new person.
