Meet Scoozie, the 11 year old, very gorgeous, tortie! Scoozie encountered a lot of change last year. After 10 years of living in an office building in Bellaire, Scoozie was surrendered by her owners at no fault of her own or of theirs. Her owner found out that he had stage four cancer, causing him to sell his business and make the very difficult decision to hand Scoozie over to a rescue. A decade of the same life/environment and then suddenly having to move somewhere new without your human would normally be very difficult for a senior cat. However, don’t let those statistics fool you…Scoozie is incredibly resilient and has many more years left of her life to live! She knows that too and seems to always look at the glass half full. Scoozie enjoys the finer things in life. She likes window perches, cozy blankets, filtered water and quiet nights at home. If Scoozie was a person, we definitely think she would be a librarian. We are still learning and observing Scoozie. Despite her resilient nature, there are certain things that are unknown as she slowly reveals her personality to her foster mom. We do know, she would likely prefer and adapt more quickly in an environment similar to what she had before…a home where it’s all about her. However, we think that with the right owner and right environment, she could thrive in a calm/patient household that has other pets or older children. Scoozie has been exposed to toddlers and it was scary for her. Most librarians don’t allow toddlers at the library though…so that would make sense! We ask whoever reads this to consider adopting Scoozie or a senior like Scoozie. It’s incredibly common for cats her age to be overlooked because they aren’t a kitten or young adult. Scoozie might be older, but she has so much more life to live if someone would just give her a chance.
