Adoptable Kitty: Let Glenda Work Her Magic on You

long-haired calico cat
Glenda is ready to go home!

Glenda lived with a stray/feral colony cared for by an elderly woman who feared for their safety, but after a series of coincidences and near misses, Glenda was “bailed out” at the last minute by Michelle Miller of Homeless Cat Management Team and is waiting for you!

Michelle describes the rescue…

Glenda does have a unique story…

HCMT [Homeless Cat Management Team] received a call from an elderly woman (Dorothy) who was heartsick over being harassed by some nasty neighbors about the outside kitties she was caring for. The woman was terrified her neighbors would do something to the cats because they were very aggressive with her telling her to “get rid of the cats”.

Another woman took the small orange female to her home about a mile away from Dorothy. She accidentally let the cat out and the kitty found her way home…a mile away! In desperation [Dorothy] scooped up the small female and took her to the ARL, she thought it was better “to die by needle than by posioning”.

At this time, I was at the shelter looking at the “death row” cats, making sure none were ear-tipped so that I could reclaim them if they were. I came across Dorothy’s name on a cage and saw this sweet little white face, it was the cat and she was going to be euthanized.

I immediately bailed her out, had her spayed & vetted. She was very frightened at first, but has been with a foster for 3 weeks and is doing great. She loves to have her head petted & rubbed. She is still a little shy, but she just needs someone to love her for who she is, a sweet little girl, now known as Glenda (she came from Glenshaw)….

And Glenda was the Good Witch of the North, and Glenshaw is in the North Hills of Pittsburgh! Will she live up to her reputation?

Sorry, just being silly, but sometimes there are no coincidences. What are the chances Michelle would visit the shelter and find the very cat Dorothy had called her about? And at the last possible moment? Glenda was meant to survive—who knows what brought this homeless kitty to Dorothy’s yard—and survive she’s doing.

Wouldn’t you like to see if this calico kitty could work her magic on you?
