Adopters with an approved application can schedule an appointment to meet our available cats. You do not need to choose a specific cat, but you must have an approved application on file.
Lexi would be happy to be your only cat. She does not enjoy the company of other cats.
Middle age can be somewhat of a bumpy ride regardless of whether you’re a cat or a person. The baggage of the past can weigh you down and the uncertainty of the future can gape before you. Throw in an upheaval to your well-honed routine and life can feel downright unhappy. Nine year old Lexi is in the middle of a turbulent time. With some miles behind her but plenty of good years ahead, she’s worried she’ll fall victim to the invisibility curse that can descend once the spring and summer of life have transitioned to autumn. Add in the fact that the place she called home is no longer there and Lexi is understandably unsettled. She’s distrustful of the shelter and the volunteers because everything new feels unwelcome. And she’s surrounded by other cats, and Lexi does not like other cats. But behind this outward tale of discomfort and displeasure is a good cat who is really hoping for the inspiration to turn lemons into lemonade. An adopter with a soft-spot for life’s uncertainties mixed with the conviction that middle age can be the perfect time to start over would be just the person Lexi needs to shed her armor and show the loveliness that lies beneath.
Lexi is now out on the floor in the shelter. She is making great progress and is approaching volunteers to interact with them. She is ready to have a home to call her own.
If you haven’t filled out the application at www.poainc.org, asking for Lexi. If you have an approved application, just send us an email requesting an appointment.
Lexi is a nine year old cat who was left alone in a garbage strewn apartment when her people were evicted. They left bags of food and a water source. They may have expected her to be found quickly.
It was weeks to months before she was found. She was able to tear open the bags of food and survive. But she was matted and obese, and very, very angry when she was found.
But here is the thing, the landlord immediately reached out for help and dozens of people started working on Lexi’s behalf. She got vet care. Someone offered to foster her until we had room.
Lexi is now in our cat adoption center. She has been vetted and her matts shaved. She is getting daily attention. She doesn’t like other cats and is currently withholding judgment on how she feels about people. She is still pretty angry. We understand.
We also know that Lexi adores playing. She loves treats (though she shouldn’t get many as she was substantially overweight when found). She is losing weight and getting healthy. She is safe and loved and we are hopeful that soon she will find her new home.
Adoptions are now done by appointment only. Email email@example.com for more info and an appointment.
