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)!

We wish there was something we could do to help Truffle find a loving home and family but sadly we are too far away. We wish her well and she looks so lovely.

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.

You are right - Truffle has been at the shelter too long! I am sure all the volunteers enjoy having her there, but it's time for her real humans to show up and adopt her!

Truffle is a stunning and beautiful cat - almost exotic in her beauty! She's playful and can be very sweet, too! I hope she finds her forever home soon!

What a lovely girl Truffle is! Truly "melt in your mouth" delicious! Heehee. We hope she finds the right home soon. Thankfully she has been well taken care of and has been safe with you in the meantime :)

She would be the perfect cat for a vintage person. I hope that she finds finally a good forever home !

haopee said...

Awww poor sweetheart. She's a beauty. It's a surprise nobody has taken a second look at her. Maybe this time, one lucky person gets to take Truffles home.

Unknown said...

Poor Truffles. She is such a beauty. Will share and thanks for joining the blog hop!

Swami Zoe said...

WIth those amazing green eyes, who wouldn't adopt her? Me-Ommmmmm

Unknown said...

I'm so sorry about Truffle that is so sad that she still hasn't found a forever home of her own. She is so gorgeous I don't understand why no one has adopted her yet :(! <3

GLOGIRLY said...

What a sweetie....and though we know there's a lot of love at PAWS, it breaks our heart to know that she's been there for four years.
(((purrs))) sweet girl...
Your time will come.

Gigi said...

What a pretty girl! We will purray that she finds a happy furever home for the holidays XOXOXOXO There IS a lotta love at PAWS, and I like to think she probably does feel at home there...but yes, I hope she gets her OWN home soon.

White Dog Blog said...

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.

Alley Cats and Angels of North Carolina said...

What a beauty. Purrs and paws crossed that she gets a forever home very soon.

Purring that Truffle gets her very own home for the holidays. What beautiful eyes!

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

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!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

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.

Kitties Blue said...

We are so surprised Truffle has not found her furever home as she is exquisitely beautiful. We will pray that this holiday sees the end of her waiting and just the right pawrents come alomg. Purrs and hugs, LO, M, MM, G, F, A, L and CJ
