Maddie is an Animal Ark alumnus, having begun life as a kitten in our care. She’s also a “boomerang” cat like her fellow Undercat, Betty Jo. But in Maddie’s case it wasn’t a dog that sent her back to Animal Ark, but rather: Grandchildren. Maddie likes to be the center of attention and her adoptive family decided that unfortunately, after four years under their roof, Maddie should find another home.
Maddie can admittedly be a bit temperamental. She’s to be forgiven; thinking you’ve found your forever home only to end up back in the shelter can cause some mistrust and frustration. Maddie will sniff you out cautiously and, if you’re deemed trustworthy, will rub up against you. She could use a quiet, patient home where she’ll be allowed to come out of her shell at her own pace. She gets along with other cats but would probably do better as an only pet, and as noted above: Small children aren’t her favorite thing.
Maddie could sure use a second chance at a forever home. We hope you’ll come meet her and decide if you can provide the loving, patient environment she needs to thrive. And don’t forget, fostering is always an option.
