effie, 4 years, female

Effie can be and wants to be your love bug, and wants to be with someone who can help her trust again after having to say goodbye to her first family. It may take some time but once she’s comfortable with you, she loves receiving pets--purring, making some serious biscuits with her paws, and scooching around to get closer or give you better access. She’s a wonderful snuggle buddy in the making, already cuddling next to her foster on the couch and visiting the bed. She loves her toys and has been known to happily play on her own in the evenings, sometimes even seeking participation from her humans.

Effie came to us overweight, but she is making great strides toward a healthier lifestyle. With her wet food-only diet and more activity, she’s been lighter in both movement and spirit since leaving the shelter. Even with her size, she’s quite nimble and flexible, and can move up and down stairs very quickly and jump up on the bed and couch with ease.

Effie has been through quite a bit in her short life, but she’s just waiting for that special someone to be her champion and buddy. Given the amount of stress she’s endured in her transition between homes, it would be best for her new home to be with folks who have cat experience and no other pets. She’s spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, negative for FIV/FeLV, and $75 to adopt.
