MARNIE is approximately 5 years old. Her story is very sad and she needs an adopter with patience and experience to offer her a safe and loving forever home.

MARNIE's owner loved her so much that when she became homeless she refused to abandon MARNIE and her feline sister MISSY. Instead, she fought hard to keep her little family together by moving them from hotel to hotel every few weeks over a 6 month period until she ultimately suffered a massive stroke and passed away in April 2018.

At that time MARNIE became homeless for the second time in her life. Luckily she and MISSY had a group of Good Samaritans fighting to save them and they were rescued.

Of the two cats MARNIE took this loss the hardest, as she was abandoned several years ago by her first owner years ago when that person moved away and tossed MARNIE on the street to fend for herself. Luckily her mom Melanie rescued her back then and brought her in off the streets.

MARNIE is very affectionate once she gets to know you. She loves human companionship but she does not want to live with any other cats. She has met two cat-loving pit bull mixes in her foster home, but only through a gate so far. She appears to be okay with the dogs, but her best case scenario would be in a home with no other pets.

 
MARNIE has come a long way over the past few weeks in her foster home. She has started playing with toys and really enjoys physical affection. However, once she’s tired of being petted, if you don’t stop she will swat you with her paw. She never uses her claws, but this is why she needs a patient and understanding family, and a quiet environment with no small children to torment her.

MARNIE does not like dry food. She is currently eating Merrick and/or Weruva's BFF brand wet cat food. 

MARNIE is FIV/FeLV negative. She will be spayed & vaccinated prior to adoption. She is being fostered in New Milford, CT. To submit an online application to adopt a cat please click here.
