Christie came to Good Mews after her human passed away. She lived her whole life in that home, so coming to the shelter was very scary and confusing for her. Christie had a hard time adjusting to shelter life at first, refusing to socialize with anyone. She was moved to the tech office for awhile so people could spend one-on-one time with her and that seemed to really help. At first, she wasn’t thrilled about it, but once she knew everyone loved her and just wanted to help, she started coming around. Once she was moved back into the main shelter, she was much more confident and secure in her surroundings. Christie has been with us awhile now and we have found she really loves people. If she gets the opportunity for some alone time with them, she can be very loving. But unfortunately, there are always other cats around, so she stays pretty irritated and will swat or ignore any attention a potential adopter is trying to give her. We have seen some loveable sides to Christie, she just needs to get out of the shelter so she can blossom into the sweet girl we know she is. We are hoping someone will come in soon and fall in love with this beautiful little snowball and give her a chance. She would make an excellent companion for someone just looking for a quiet, lovable friend. She would really love to be a single cat in her home, that way she doesn’t have to share her human. She would probably be OK with one other laid-back cat, as long as they let Christie have first dibs when it’s lap time.
Christie has some mild thickening in her heart and has had 2 echocardiograms as well as annual bloodwork to monitor this issue. Her most recent bloodwork in March 2022 was normal, including ProBnp which is a heart-related value. She does not need another recheck echocardiogram unless that value goes up later, which is why we recommend continuing annual bloodwork with her adopter's veterinarian.
