Truffle on Tuesday


We always enjoy visiting our pal Truffle, but she's been at PAWS for way too long.  We first posted about her in January of 2009, so you can do the math.  Like we said, she's been waiting (patiently) for way too long.

Truffle isn't exactly a lapcat, but she IS affectionate.  All of the volunteers and staff have to be careful not to trip as she weaves happily in and out of our legs.  She also enjoys being pet on the head and behind her ears, but will let you know when she's had enough.  Her coloring and markings are strikingly unique, and her fur is extra downy soft.  And she enjoys sunpuddles and playing! 


We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Truffle does have a condition called stomatitis - inflammation in her gums that flares up every so often.  But she hasn't been on medication for a while, and is doing very well.  She is also on a wet food only diet (but that's a good thing, as it helps her maintain her girlish figure ... MOL).  Truffle is 10 years old, up to date on vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  She's also microchipped.

Won't you please give Truffle the happily ever after she's been waiting for?  And even if you can't, perhaps you can help us find her a forever home by sharing her story on Facebook, Twitter and/or other social media?  Thanks (from Truffle and all of her pals)!

  9. I hate doing that math... I know she's safe and well taken care of, but she deserves so much more. She's Cat of the Month at PAWS and there are flyers printed up with her picture. Hoping it helps find her a home.

  35. Truffles is a beauty and would be a perfect addition to a nice quiet home that needed a BIG dose of adorable. We are asking the Universe to send this girl home for the holidays...she so deserves a forever family to pamper her, shelter her, love her.

  40. I shared her and so did Mom Linda and I tweeted and asked for RTs. Stomatitis is no big deal at all

  41. She is so lovely. It's just heartbreaking that she's been up for adoption for that long. She holds an extra special place in my heart because that's my cat's name too!

  42. We shared, she does have very striking markings she is a Lady of Autumn and a Tabby Cat. What fun she could have in both clubs. We do hope she finds her forever family for the Holidays.
