Bummer is ready for a home of her own!

Poor Bummer has been with us since April 15, 2014.  She almost 6 years old and is more than ready for her forever family to adopt her.  She is microchipped, had her shots and is spayed.

Bummer can be very playful and affectionate, but only on her terms.  She is very independent and would be best suited to an adult home with an owner who is an experienced and knowledgeable about cat behaviour.

Bummer needs to be the center of attention.  We do not recommend that she join a family with other pets.  Bummer needs to be an ‘only pet.’ In a quiet environment, we believe Bummer will do well.  Her new family will have to have time and patients in getting to know what she does and does not like. Bummer needs a chance at a new life with the right family.  A cozy pillow of her own and a chance to look out the window whenever she wants, would be heaven for sweet Bummer.

If you feel Bummer is the kind of cat that would thrive in your home, please contact us at 705-878-4618.  Let’s get Bummer home for life!
