|In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The Fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The Fund sponsors medical treatment, shelter, and adoptions for lost and homeless animals.|
Elsie is a healthy 10 year-old tortoiseshell lady cat with a shortened tail - but that does not detract from her beauty!
Elsie had lived in a courtyard near a local aerospace company building since she was a kitten, and then found a wonderful home at age 5.
Unfortunately, Elsie's person has passed over the Rainbow Bridge and she is now looking for another quiet home.
Elsie was initially very shy with people, but thanks to the devotion and dedication of her caretakers, she is now a very friendly cat and comes right up to her people for pets when she sees them. Call her name and she will come to you!
This sweet girl is very relaxed, attentive and loving. She enjoys having her chin scratched, having her tummy rubbed, and lying in the sun. She is sensitive to loud noises and loud people; she does not like other cats and has never been exposed to dogs.
Elsie's caretaker has this to say about her: "Elsie belonged to my wife who passed away. I am having health problems now and can no longer give Elsie the loving care she deserves".
"The perfect home would be a quiet one with mature humans who need a companion. While Elsie has never lived with small children she is good around kids, but is not used to being around them all of the time. Her home environment has been quiet and low stress."
Would you open your heart to this dear girl? All Elsie wants is to be petted and loved! She deserves another chance to find another loving indoor-only home.
Elsie will reward her people by being a devoted and loving companion once she is settled in her new home.
