In shelter Cat

Philadelphia, Houston County, Alabama...
Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair, Mixed
Gray, White
Coat length:
 Independent, sassy lady with cancer, seeking a kingdom to rule over.

Don’t let her cute name fool you – Wizzles is seven pounds of spice and independence! As an 8-year-old former street cat, Wizzles is used to doing things her way. Since she was rescued and diagnosed with mammary cancer, however, she’s been learning to accept comfort from people. Now she’ll seek out your company to curl up by your feet, and when she’s in the right mood, she’ll even let you pet her. If you scratch her behind the ears just right, you might hear her rare but rewarding purr – it’s taken her some time to learn the difference between growling and purring, but she’s starting to get the hang of it!

When Wizzles isn’t napping in her favorite paper bag cave or staring at you from across the room, she loves to chase her beloved cat wand or sprawl out in front of a space heater. She’s looking for a quiet, adult-only home where she can relax as the only pet.

Wizzles is a part of our Hospice Program because she's been diagnosed with mammary cancer. She is looking for a special, patient family who will diligently monitor and provide care for her quality of life and overall comfort for whatever time she has left. She's ready to be spoiled (on her terms) with all the love you have to offer!
