Angel is a beautiful girl.
They said she gets along well with other older cats, but gets very stressed around younger, hyper cats or young children.
We have a teenage son, but our other three are all under 8 years old...the youngest just turned 3.
Gracie and Annabelle are both older adult cats, but Elliott is only 2 and he's still pretty much a hyper active youngster.
So they didn't feel Angel would be a good fit.
There were other younger cats all around 1 or 2 years old and tons of kittens, but with Elliott being as hyper as he is another young cat would probably send Gracie over the edge.
I was very upset and my Daughter cried the whole way home, she fell in love with Angel too.
I tried to explain to her that Angel needs a home with only older cats and no kids, I told her that we didn't want to upset Angel any more because her human Mommy had just died and we didn't want to add to her upset.
My Daughter and Sons all told me that they promised to be very quiet if we could get Angel.
I told them that even if they did somehow manage to do that, that Elliott would be to much for her.
Angel did seem fine around them at the shelter, but of course they were on their best behavior and the boys weren't running around like little wild animals!
I did feel better once one of the people who worked there told me that if they couldn't find a suitable home for Angel that she was going to adopt her for her Father...so at least I know she'll get a new forever home one way or the other.
So, my search for an older female cat continues.
