Sadie has a delightful personality and is very affectionate. She can also be quite independent and is just as happy to snuggle up in a corner on her own as she is to cuddle in your lap. Sadie’s meow has a chirpy, chatty sound and she rubs up against my legs come feeding time or when I come home from work which is quite lovely. Sadie is around 5 years old and is on the small side for a cat. I got her from a rescue when she was a kitten and am not sure what exact breed she is.
She is desexed, microchipped and will come with a full vet check including up to date vaccinations prior to adoption. I can ask my vet to provide me with her full vet history or forward it to your own vet. Her new owner will need to arrange to transfer her microchip into their own name and I will sign whatever is required.
Sadie comes with:
- A collapsible cat carrier
- Feed bowl
- Water bowl
- Cat scratch tower (quite large – you don’t have to take it but as it will smell familiar to her I would ask that you take it at least initially)
- 1 large bag of the food she currently eats so you can buy the same food or transition her to other food gradually
- Litter tray and scoop (cleaned)
- 1 large bag of litter (I have been using clumping clay litter which is very easy to scoop up but you may want to transition to another type).
Of course, like humans, she is not without her quirks:
- Sadie has a habit of chewing soft plastic so I have always kept plastic bags where she cannot reach them. I don’t think she swallows it, she just enjoys the feeling of chewing it.
- She loves fresh and running water and in her early years enjoyed drinking from the faucet in my bath. She hasn’t done this in a while but still occasionally comes running when I turn on a tap and will occasionally lick the faucet once it has been turned off. Keeping her water bowl clean and full of fresh water can usually curb this desire.
- She is what the vet describes as a “social eater” which means she likes to eat her food when there are people around. As such, she sometimes gets excited and eats a lot in one go having slept all day, which can cause her to be sick. This is easily managed by keeping her food in an area where there are often people around or feeding her smaller, more frequent meals. I have had her thoroughly checked by the vet and she does not have any thyroid or digestive issues, she is just an occasionally overly-enthusiastic eater which is common in animals.
Sadie is a largely low-maintenance cat. She moslty sheds once a year around Summer. She loves to cuddle up in bed and can sit on you for hours and nap. I absolutely adore her and it is a very tough decision to let her go. I do not have a moving date as yet and as such am not in a hurry to rehome her. I want to take my time in finding the perfect home for Sadie. She would be best suited to a quiet home, ideally with no other animals or with older animals who are low-energy. She is more of a people person, though she has enjoyed playing with other cats in her time. She does not like to go outside and is happy to sit inside and look out the window or curl up on the couch and sleep.
I will do whatever is required to assist her transition into a new home and am happy to remain in contact or visit should you have any questions. Her new owner will need a little patience as she can be quite shy and may take a little time to warm up to her new surroundings. What you will be adopting is a very sweet, affectionate cat who will be sorely missed! I didn’t want to ask for money for her but I’ve been warned about people takin free cats for in humane purposes.
Please get in contact if you are genuinely interested and have a lifestyle that would suit having a cat in your home.
