Fall River Diabetic Cat Needs a Forever Home [WET NOSE WEDNESDAY]
Wet Nose Wednesday is here again, where every week, I introduce you to a pet on the SouthCoast that is ready for adoption. The area is home to several hard-working shelters, and with their help, I have the pleasure of giving animals center stage. The mission to get as many pets adopted as possible continues.
Meet Ellie. This four-year-old tortoiseshell cat currently resides at Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River and has been waiting to meet her forever family for the past 13 weeks.
Ellie is an easy-going and laid-back cat that loves to socialize. She has a habit of making herself comfortable on any empty lap she sees.
So why has she been at the shelter for over three months?
Ellie is diabetic and insulin dependent, which has scared many potential families away.
“She watches everyone walk by, and she does get their attention, however when potential adopters ask about her, they immediately change their mind and continue on,” said Arianna Silva, director of Forever Paws. Luckily, Ellie’s insulin is very affordable; she just needs to be given a chance.
Ellie would do wonderfully in any home because she loves being around people, so whether you have young children or a home that could use some company, Ellie is your perfect companion.
The shelter is currently open by appointment, so make one today and meet Ellie. Let’s help Ellie find the family she deserves.
