"Mew Mew" came to us after having been found wandering the streets of St. Petersburg. She was declawed, emaciated, had patches of missing fur and raw skin, and she was so afraid. After a while, she began to blossom...her skin healed, her fur started to grow back, and she was accepting of attention. Mew Mew (named by her rescuer) was still very afraid of the other cats, and refused to come out of her cat condo. When taken out, she'd just jump right back in!
At that point, we were blessed to have Deborah Kowel step up and offer to foster her. Deb changed her name to "Czarina." It didn't take much time before Czarina was up on the bed with Deb and her other cats! We had several applicants for Czarina, but none "clicked" until Nicole and Sid offered to adopt her. We did our due diligence, and decided that pending a home visit, the adoption was a "go!" Deb drove Czarina all the way to her new home.
Despite her trauma, thanks to her angels that kept her alive out there and the caring person who found her and contacted The Little Cats' Rescue in New Port Richey, Czarina is safe and happy in her forever home with Nicole and Sid. She is only about three years old, and we believe she will have a long and happy life. Her name is now Ziva...and guess where she lives? In St. Petersburg!!! We love a happy tail!
