Help Emma solve her dilemma!!

Our little wide-eyed beauty has experienced more in her few short years than most cats do in ALL their 9 lives! Emma is one of many, many cats rescued from a terrible hoarding situation in Beamsville.

While living la vida loca, Emma knew love, albeit briefly, with a handsome and charming boy cat. Let's call him...Tom. She also got to enjoy motherhood, and has experienced the "empty nest" as her little ones grew up, and got adopted into their own forever homes. Emma's wee ones don't write to her very often, but that could be because it's difficult to write without opposable thumbs, and postage is super expensive! And Tom? Well, he doesn't call Emma....but the phone at EHS is always ringing, and Tom likely doesn't have very good cell phone reception, outside of Hamilton.

While Emma has transitioned well, from the swinging single life outdoors to life in the shelter, she was a bit shy and uncertain of humans. But her trust and confidence is growing and showing, in that she loves getting pet, and head butts some volunteers for more! Emma is quite fond of getting pet with the Chenille Duster, and will now show volunteers her belly for it! Showing her belly? Now that's progress! She trusts us! Emma may not be a lap cat, yet....but she is certainly sweet on some volunteers!

Emma has been living in the Kitty Condo at the back of the shelter, and loves to watch the activity going on around her. And she is so much into playtime! The feather wand, laser pointer, sponge balls, toys hidden under a blanket....all get her excited! And while she plays, she forgets about being cautious around people. Bonding through play really works! Emma can be goofy, too, with her roomies. She has been known to initiate wrestling matches with those who want to take her on!

So, here's the rub: does Emma look for a home with small children? Likely not. It's safe to say that an adult home with older children would bring out her amazing purrsonality. Would Emma fare well with other animals? We're not sure how she would do with dogs....but we're certain she would do really well in a home with another friendly cat. She started out her life in a colony environment with other cats and, since arriving at EHS, she lives amicably with a number of other kitties in the Kitty Condo.

Here is Emma's dilemma: she is looking for a specific, special purrson, who will love her right where she's at, and help her to grow into the confident, fun, crazy playful girl that she is. Are you the one who can tell Emma, "Your dilemma is solved!"?
The adoption fee for a single cat at EHS is $150. Take home a feline friend for your kitty and the adoption fee for the pair is $250! Each of our cats is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, snap tested for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, and flea treated prior to adoption. Kittens are not spayed or neutered until 6 months of age, but the cost of the spay/neuter will be covered as part of the adoption.
Please contact cats@etobicokehumanesociety. com for more details about Emma or fill out our online form. An EHS representative will be pleased to help.
