Tabby Girl Tuesday - Sheba

Meet our tabby friend, Sheba.  Isn't she beautiful?  Sheba came to PAWS after she had trouble adjusting to a new human baby in her house.  We can imagine that after years of being the child of the house, Sheba was confused and scared by the new little human's arrival. When we first met her, Sheba would literally sit with her back to us, staring at the back corner of her cage.  It made us so very sad.  But with love, patience and affection from the volunteers and staff, our "Sheebie" is starting to come out of her shell.  She now faces the front of the cage, loves catnip, and even gives cheek rubs to her favorite human friends. :)

Sheba is about 15 years old, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all her vaccinations.  She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  She has lots of love to give, and would do best in a quiet home with no children or other animals.  Won't you give her the chance she so deserves?

How sad to lose your home after so many years. No wonder she was facing the wall! And we're sure her old family must have felt bad about giving her up. We hope a loving family finds her soon so Sheba's life can get back on track.

Meeting Moosey's esteemed mom and dad was the highlight of BlogPaws! You are every bit as nice and sweet as the mom thought! She is so excited that she had time to spend with you, and hopes to do it again next year.

Oh, and thanks for the help trashing, Moosey! Who knew you were such a wild man!

I hope there is a great home out there for Sheba!

My human says it was great meeting you both at BlogPaws and she wishes she could have spent more time with you!

Sheba looks so sad it made Mum want to cry for her being unable to adapt to the baby. We hope someone will fall in love with her soon and take her home to be pampered.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

It made us very sad that Sheba was given up because she couldn't adjust to a new human baby. :( After having been the only baby for 15 years!
We're glad PAWs gave her their all to help her come out of her shell. Well done, everyone!
Her white marking between her eyes is so much like our Ling's. :)

Dang, how could some human give up a beauty like Sheba in favor of a blurpy? We purr that she can find another home, but we know she is in good hands at PAWS.

The mom said she so enjoyed meeting you and Tracey at BlogPaws!

Sheba is doing really well adjusting to the shelter. Hope she doesn't have a long stay!
So sad to think of her being someone's darling her whole life, and now living in a cage... OK, time for an attitude adjustment- Thank goodness for PAWS!

Sheba is beautiful. She looks so wise!

Tamago said...

Oh poor baby, her story made me very sad. I can't imagine how difficult it is for her to lose her home after so many years. I'm glad she is recovering from sadness and thank you to wonderful people at PAWS! I hope she finds forever family who loves her dearly.

Marg said...

Wow, that poor cat having to leave her family after that long. We sure hope she finds a really nice family. She is a pretty one. Take care.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We wonder if she really couldn't adjust, or if her previous humans just couldn't be bothered helping her. Poor sweetheart. We're sending her purrs that she'll find a wonderful human to take her in.

Our own human sometimes thinks that after we're gone, it would be so worthwhile to adopt senior kitties like this, if she can manage financially. So surely there must be someone for lovely Sheba.

LP said...

Argh. Some People are beyond understanding!! We hope Sheba finds someone to love her during her golden years. . . more than she was ever loved by a family who gave her up after all those years with them!!

Oskar said...

Poor Sheba, that must be so jarring for her. I'm glad the love of the PAWS people is helping her to feel better.

I hope she finds her new home very quickly.

My mom person came home talking all about you & Tracey and how great it was to finally get to you both!

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

That poor dear lady, and yes, she is stunning gorgeous.

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Oh dear, ousted out from her family after 15 years, no wonder she looks sad. Miracles can and do happen so we're asking for one.

Beth said...

She is so sweet. How sad that she had to leave her home after 15 years! I hope someone will have it in their heart to give her a fur-ever home.

Splendid Little Stars said...

aaww...Sheeba is so cute! I hope she finds a loving home.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

We just hate hearing about owner surrender and especially a very senior girl. We cannot imagine how anyone could live with a kitty that long and turn her in. We are glad she is with your rescue and we know that the right home will come for her, she is such a beauty.

Carma Poodale said...

Thank you for all that you do! Its terrible when people do stuff like that. There are always ways to help kitties and doggies adjust but new pawents sometimes don't want to try. I will share in hopes she finds a furever home that will love her no matter what.

Cara n Crew said...

aw, poor Sheba! we are glad you were there for her and she is adjusting. She sure has beautiful whiskers! and a great stink eye, hee hee! Sheba, we will purr you'll have a new and fabulous forever home soon!

A new baby and becoming second fiddle are tough adjustments for a senior girl! We hope beautiful Sheba refinds her trust with the perfect forever family who can make her the focus of all their love!

Clooney said...

Wow, what a sad story, our hearts break for her. We are very happy though that she ended up with the fantastic volunteers at PAWS where she will get tons of love and good care and hopefully come even more around to trusting humans again. We send our hugest purrs her way for her to find an amazing forever home that cherishes her so.

Sheba is indeed quite beautiful. We hope this senior lady finds a home that appreciates all she has to offer.

Sheba is adorable! It must have been such a shock for her when the new human baby came along. Poor Sheba! We are glad that she's starting to accept the love and affection the PAWS volunteers and staff are giving her. We really hope she finds a great home soon!

Unknown said...

Poor Sheba - so often people seem to get rid of the cat when they have a baby. What a shame, but let's hope she finds a new and loving home for the rest of her life.

We wish humans would try harder to help cats adjust to new things at home. Hope she finds a wonderful forever home this time.
