Adopt Me: Wilma deserves to be treated like the queen she is (adopted)

She gets along with other cats, but she prefers to keep to herself

ElliotLakeToday, in partnership with the Society For Animals In Distress, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi there, my name is Wilma. I came to the shelter as a stray, I was frozen and afraid. The tips of my ears were frost bitten and they hurt a lot.

I am only two years old but I feel much older . . . I am thankful to the kind people who have saved me from a life on the streets!

Everybody who sees me tells me I am a beautiful girl, I am a long-hair tortie and I have the most beautiful green eyes (or so I've been told). The shelter staff calls me a queen because I enjoy affection on my own time, and let anyone know if they try otherwise.

I am so special that when the staff feeds me I get to eat by the sink and I am usually fed first or I yell and scream until I'm fed. When I'm not bossing the humans around I enjoy spending my free time looking out the window and sunning.

I enjoy playing with toys that have string or a little orange mouse you can sometimes catch me carrying around. I get along well with Chatters, sometimes he'll lay beside me and bird watch, he doesn't try and play or jump on me so we get along well!

I am ready to find my forever home and I am ready to have my forever people to love and love me back. I get along with cats, in the sense that I tolerate them but I prefer to keep to myself. I have been flea and worm treated, fully vaccinated and spayed.

Come down to the shelter and meet me Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., or in the evenings between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., or on weekends from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
