Hello! My name is Electra and I am that rare beauty, a solid orange tabby female. I have soft long fur, the most expressive sage green eyes and the cutest little pink nose! Please scroll down to see my photo portfolio.
I was returned to Happy Cats when my person was unable to care for me any more, though she loved me very much. They soon found out that I was having litterbox issues.
Even though I was returned with another cat friend, they found I was very fearful of other cats, so I moved to our friends at Colorado Cats to have my own condo and work with behavior consultant Carole Galloway.
Along with the fear (or likely because of it), Carole found I was in pain from several sources. She figured out that I had both painful stools because of constipation and pain with urination because of cystitis. At one point this had me so upset that I would avoid the litterbox for days and growl at it because I associated it with so much pain.
After months of patiently trying several medications and behavior modifications, Carole figured out the right combination of supplements and medications to relieve my anxiety as well as my pain. Now that I’m healthy again, I am back to using the box like any other kitty!
I am claiming my human time too, now that I have my confidence back. I love laps and lots of attention, purring my little whiskers off and gazing at my people with those soulful green eyes.
Even though I’m 8 now, playtime is still my favorite time of the day. I love just about any toy, leaping and pouncing with wand toys, and also fetching with my many different sizes of sparkle balls, as you can see below. I’m very food motivated and Carole has taught me some great tricks, like Sit Pretty and High Five!
A quiet, predictable home without any other pets or small children will help bring out my best. I love my Cat Ladies but will need an extra, careful introduction to any Cat Daddies, as I tend to be fearful of them until I know I’m completely safe.
You can adopt me for $60 which includes my spay, vaccinations, microchip, food and litter starter kit, free well-kitty checkup, a nice tall cat tree so I feel safe AND 6 months worth of my medications and prescription food to get you both started. In addition, you’ll have full behavioral support from Carole through our Ask Ms Kitty program to make sure she transitions as well to her new life with you as she has with Carole!
