Akasha Lost Her Person, and Her HomePosted: October 11, 2011 Filed under: adopting a cat, animal rescue, cats | Tags: animal advocates pittsburgh, animal rescue, cat for adoption, cats 6 Comments
Akasha’s person died suddenly on September 20, 2011, with Akasha sitting right next to her, and now Akasha needs a home…again.
From Animal Advocates:
It was a long time coming but for a while Akasha had it all. At least she had everything she really needed. As a young cat she had been in our rescue for quite some time. She was definitely not happy sharing space with other cats and she let everybody know it. When she wasn’t acting out she was sulking. As pretty as she is she just wasn’t living up to that “pretty is as pretty does ” adage.
Then she met a compassionate cat lover named Michaelene. “Mikey” was catless having lost a senior cat companion and she was able to offer an only cat home to Akasha. The transformation was almost immediate and miraculous. With kindness and patience and without the stress of other animals around, testy Akasha transformed into an absolute cuddle kitty. She became affectionate, playful and demonstrative, responding to her name, head butting for attention and following her Mikey like a puppy dog. This attitude extended beyond Mikey. Akasha wanted to be friends with Mikey’s human friends as well.
Akasha’s familiar and happy world came crashing down when Michaelene died suddenly. The confused, frightened cat was found laying beside her guardian’s body.
Mikey died exactly 3 years to the day that she had adopted Akasha.
We’re hoping there is another Mikey out there. Akasha needs an only cat home, where with a bit of time and understanding she will once again be the loving, happy companion she was with Mikey. Everything Akasha needs really isn’t much, just somebody to love and keep her as an only, not lonely cat.
If you would like to meet Akasha or know somebody who might be a good match for her please contact Animal Advocates in Pittsburgh. And please pass along as you can. Thanks.
Her current foster adds:
So pass this on, please. She is going to her SECOND temporary home this week.:-( Poor kitty. But this 2nd home can only be for 5 weeks or so. Is there ANYBODY out there that can adopt forever or at least care and love her temporarily until we can find a permanent forever home?
