–THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT NINA, PLEASE CONTACT MAXINE AT THE PHONE NUMBER BELOW–

Nina is a sweet old girl who hasn’t had the best couple of years. Her original owners got her as a kitten and had her for 13 years, during which she progressed from an indoor cat, to an indoor/outdoor cat, to an almost completely outdoor cat. When the owners had to move to the city, theY decided she would be happier being left in the woods, and had a neighbor promise to feed her. Well, you can probably imagine how well leaving a senior, long-hair cat in the woods worked out. By the time she found me, she had over 2 lbs of mats on her, and was covered in ticks and fleas. She was also several lbs underweight. It has been about two months since then, and we have gotten her cleaned up, healed, and gaining weight. The only reason we are not able to keep her is that she DOES NOT like other cats. She is truly TERRIFIED of them. My cat is 15 years old and the laziest push-over of a cat you will find, and even after months of trying to slowly acclimate them to one other, Nina still won’t go near my cat. It was causing her such immense stress that we now have the cats separated into two different sections of the house, but if she even hears the jingle of the other cats collar, she will still hiss and go hide.
 
Nina needs a peaceful, quiet home, with someone who will be patient with her as she learns to feel confident and trust again. Due to her stress levels, she can be a little unpredictable, but it is apparent that she does love people. We believe that if she had a safe space to grow and relax, she would blossom into a very affectionate cat. Nina’s ideal home would be without young kids, cats, or other animals. She needs to be the only pet, and prefers a quiet environment. She also would do best with somebody willing to walk her – she is good about having her harness put on, and while she isn’t a huge fan of the leash, she is learning. There are a multitude of reasons why it would not be safe to have her an outdoor cat, but she does love being outside when safely supervised. A catio would also be a great option.
 
Nina would be a wonderful companion for anyone willing to give her a safe and loving home. More than anything we just want to see her flourish into her best self! Please text me at 971-221-5189 for more pictures or information
