Ellie is an outgoing, affectionate, sometimes feisty cat with a big personality, who reigns as queen over her domain. She came to the SPCA when her previous owner sadly passed away and the family could no longer keep her. Ellie did previously live with kids but apparently was not a fan so would prefer a home without young children. She also apparently tends to prefer women over men though may be open to bribery with her favourite treats, Temptations. She goes absolutely wild for her treats and will be all over you for them when you shake that bag! Initially she was very afraid when she came into the shelter, even acting aggressively because she was scared, but treats have helped her relax with the staff and show her friendlier side.Ellie was used to going outside a lot in her previous home but it may be possible for her to get used to being a strictly indoor cat as she has been perfectly happy being inside at the shelter, especially in this cold weather. Ellie may be initially nervous in a new environment and needs time to adjust and gain trust in her new people. She would be happiest in a calm, quiet home. Ellie did live with another cat at one time though apparently they didn't get along very well so we're not sure if she can happily cohabit with other pets or not. Testing and slow, proper introductions will be important with any new animals. Ellie is a pretty girl who will let you know when she's happy by showering you with affection, but she will also let you know when you're pushing her boundaries or she's not in the mood to be pet with a swat. She needs a cat savvy guardian who will take the time to build her trust, and understand that petting is on her terms. Once she trusts you she's an affectionate, chatty cat and even likes to curl up on laps. In the right home Ellie will make a wonderful pet and can learn to love again after her loss. Could you be the purr-fect match for this fine feline and give her her second chance?An adoption counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
