Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Elsa
Posted on April 11th, 2014 by Sara Willy
On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Wednesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.
Queen Anne View has not met any of these pets – SAS is providing us with the description, as they know them well. We encourage potential adopters to get in touch with SAS and work with them to evaluate the compatibility of your home and a new pet.
Updates on previous pets:
Dante (chihuahua) – available for adoption
China & Vesper (chinchillas) – available for adoption
Godiva (black & white kitty) – available for adoption
Murasaki (Calico kitty) – available for adoption
Slim (corn snake) – available for adoption
When you first meet Elsa, she might seem a bit reserved, and even world-weary… but this sweet, scrappy 12-year-old is anything but. With one friendly gesture or scratch behind her ears, she’ll start up a purr that lets you know she’s ready for more.
Elsa’s white coat is tremendously soft, and she enjoys being petted all over, belly rubs included, which is not always a given with cats! This gentle, friendly girl loves attention and being groomed; she’s also got an endearing way of resting her chin on your hand.
She’d be a wonderful first cat for someone who’s never had one before. Elsa would like to live in a calm, mature household with just adults. She might enjoy the company of another cat, too.
Elsa (SAS ID #14-14459-1) is at the Seattle Animal Shelter. Cat Adoption Applications are available in the Shelter lobby, or you may download the application and bring it with you to the Shelter or follow the directions to submit it via email or fax.
Elsa qualifies for the Shelter’s Senior Citizen Discount program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a Gold Card for Healthy Aging, or FLASH card (issued by the City of Seattle), may adopt an adult cat (at least six years old) at a special price – no fee for the adoption itself, and the licensing fee is half-price.
If Elsa isn’t the kitty for you, but you are looking for the right match: The Shelter currently has almost 90 felines available for adoption. Young ones, old ones, and adults, too. Black ones, white ones, tortoiseshells, and tabbies. Long haired, short haired, and everything in between. Many of the available cats and kittens are in foster homes, but others are at the Shelter, and a few reside at the Petco across the street (next to Whole Foods). Stop in to find just the right kitty for you or peruse the shelter’s adoption page to see all the available felines.
