If ever there was a kittie that has been failed by humans, it is me. Hi, my name is Amelia... my now you are probably wondering what my story is. Well, I am about to tell you all about it- so go grab a cuppa and make yourself comfortable.
By now you are probably wondering what the above is all about. I can't really blame you. My story begins with my first owner -and- with the sudden onset of allergies, they needed to rehome several kitties (me included!) This is obviously something I couldn't help and my long coat certainly didn't help my cause. Nevertheless, it was about to make me homeless.Thankfully, they reached out to the wonderful team at S.A.M., who wasted no time in finding a suitable for home for us all. A foster home would mean we had somewhere safe and loving to stay until more permanant home's are found. The lady who took us in was lovely. We felt safe. We felt loved.
The rescue advertised us once we had received all necessary vet work and had settled into our foster home. Being in foster care allowed the rescue to assess each of our personalities and find homes they felt would best meet our needs. I had a few meet and greets before I met a lady who I thought* would provide me with the forever home I needed. I was a happy cat and enjoyed the company of people and other kitties, so it's not surprise that she wanted to adopt me. She appeared smitten! I was wrong.
The lady who seemed nice at the time, proceeded with an adoption. This should have been my forever home... Months later the rescue received a fairly odd email, the lady was not happy with an 'error' made on my paperwork, that, being my age. It happens, they are only human. Her displeasure continued, with several emails being exchanged that increased in hostility. I was beginning to worry about my security... about my future. She seemed very 'hung up' on this 'error'. The rescue offered to take me back in however, the lady explained she wasn't a monster and wasn't going to return me like a pair of jeans. About a week later she posted me on social media, seeking a new home. However, her post stated that I was not cat social and fairly timid in nature. This understandably concerned the rescue, as it was a very different description to the cat I once was. They reached out to this lady who agreed to return me back.
I came back into the care of the rescue, however this time I went to a carer close to my previous adopter. I was withdrawn, extremely timid, and petrified of everything/ everyone. I shook for days and refused to eat. What had happened to me? It became abundanly clear that a serious amount of TLC would need to be invested before I would ever be ready for rehoming again- if that was at all possible? I did improve with time, but I was never quite the same.
The rescue began making efforts to find me a new forever home and they truly thought they had found the perfect fit for me. However sadly, my new adopter developed allergies and so I needed to be returned, again... My fate at this point seemed doomed. I was taken back to my initial foster carer who welcomed me with open arms. I remembered this nice lady.
The rescue is now hoping (4th time lucky), a special someone will be understanding of my ordeal and how it has affected me AND be willing to give me another chance. Truly after all of this it's the least I deserve?
Adoption fee is $200 and covers 1st vaccination, de-sexing, microchip, worming, flea treatment and vet check. Animals are ready for their forever homes typically once they reach 9 weeks of age and vet work has been completed. Please note* adoption fees do not cover microchip transfer costs. This can be obtained from the lovely SAM team upon request.
