Under any circumstances where there are cat adoptions, there will always be a few felines who don’t fit neatly into an adopter’s idea of how a cat should act. Such a cat is our Mollie. Please don’t think that any of this is due to Mollie’s personality, however; it isn’t. Although she can be a bit shy with people initially, once you start talking to her and petting her, she blossoms. She’s a thoroughly sweet girl and, when she gets accustomed to you, quite loving.
Mollie was living at another shelter. She was adopted from, and returned to, that shelter at least three times for house soiling, a fancy way of saying she doesn’t always use her litter box. When that happens with a cat, an obvious step is to check for medical issues that might be causing it, and that was done. But, nothing medical was discovered. The situations surrounding Mollie’s stays in these homes are not clear to us, nor is it apparent whether any simple remedies were tried (for instance, if there were multiple cats in a household, was there more than one litterbox?). Because of that, and because Mollie was shifted around a number of times, we think her house soiling might be circumstantial. We have been watching her carefully, but so far, we have not seen any signs of that Mollie is currently not using her litter box consistently.
We’re seeking an adopter who will give Mollie a genuine chance in their home. We’d love to see this sweet little cat (she’s very petite) given a fair shot by an adopter who has some understanding of feline behavior. If that description fits you, come in to meet our Mollie.
