Tabby Cat Tuesday - Holly

We love our sweet tabby friend Holly SO much. She adores people, snuggling, being pet, and being talked to. This beautiful girl, who is about 10 years old, ended up at PAWS after she was found wandering outside an office building. Even though Tracey and I were sad to learn yesterday that Holly is in the first stages of kidney disease, it's clear that this darling kitty still has lots of love to give.


According to the Cornell Feline Health Center, "...it is quite common nowadays — thanks to innovative medical and surgical procedures — for some cats to live for one to three years or even longer following early diagnosis (of kidney disease)."



Do you have room in your heart and home for Holly? This special girl will fill your life with love and affection, and be the best friend you've ever had.

  1. I wonder how she ended up on her own. She was obviously someone's sweet cat once upon a time. She has a very soft coat and a deep quiet purr.
    I hope she won't be at the shelter long, but while she's with us, we'll all give her a lot of love.
    xxoo

  6. Since the kidney disease was caught so early, with proper management, Holly should have a couple of healthy years in her. :) Purring her forever family takes her home soon.

  8. Holly is beautiful and we hope she finds her furever home.

    The mom had a cat that was diagnosed with kidney disease early and he lived for 7 more years...and it wasn't kidney disease that he died of. So Holly, with proper care, could have a long life still ahead of her!

  9. Yeah Somer my daughter is keeping my grandkitty Bunny alive with Sub-fluids. Bunny will be 20 years old this April. I went to N.Y. last Thanksgiving just so I could see her and my daughter. I hope its not the last time I see her.

    Hope Holly finds that small forever home.

  13. Such a beautiful girl....
    We're so sorry to read about her illness. But you are so right, that does nothing to her capacity to love.
    (((purrs))) We hope she finds a forever home to call her very own.

  14. What a sweet girl. So sorry to hear she has been diagnosed with kidney disease. I hope she finds forever home where she gets proper treatment and lots of love.

  15. It just sickens me so much to learn of animals being abandoned - especially those in later years and who's health is starting to fail. Our Misty lived for 4 years with kidney disease. It's so easy to learn to do the fluids at home too, and really not that expensive. Yes, she has a lot of love to give yet. Bless you for trying to find a home for her.

  17. Beautiful Holly! So pretty. Love her expressive eyes. Our dearly passed Queen, Crits, lived for almost five years with kidney disease. Didn't affect her rule or our ability to love her. Sending purrs that she find a kind home with a family who will love her. Purrs...

  21. Holly is a beautiful angel and I hope she will be given sub q fluids; I gave them to my Mom's cat daily for 5 years before her death at 20 years and to my own Nikki for almost 2 years before her death at 20 years...It is an easy way to help them live longer lives without suffering=it only takes a few minutes and does not compromise their quality of life...God bless sweet Holly=I will pray for her to find a new loving forever family asap...We are so glad you guys are our friends=we have lost too many lately=heartbroken over Eric today...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

  25. I sincerely purrs and prayers for Holly. She is a darling~!! Hope she could find her forever soon! She deserve it.

  26. Oh, we hope someone will adopt her! We can say from experience with our beloved Lumpy, even kitties who hate treatment for kidney disease can live much longer than 3 years, and have full lives. His disease didn't stop him from fighting getting fluids (we finally just stopped and encouraged him to drink lots of water) and stealing as many warm seats as he could. We hope someone will give Holly a chance too.

  27. The Human gave Clarkie sub-q fluids for a few years. It was easy-peasy and he didn't mind at all (except the sitting still for 7 or 8 minutes of course ;-) XOXOXO

  42. Oh we sooo hope someone will give this girl a loving home for her last years! (And mommy says that if a certain crazypants kitty were just a BIT less of a B-R-A-T, then she sure would like to take on cases like this locally from Wayside. But as it stands now she figures it would be a pretty tortuous environment for kitties like Holly...!)
