MEET ELLIE

Hi! Nice to meet you! My name is Ellie, and I’m looking for a place that I can call home forever. I was found with my sisters living on a rural property with our mum. Since then, we have been in care with the angels. I haven’t met many humans before, so I was super scared at first. Luckily, I have a very patient foster mum, and every day I’m learning that humans are sooooo nice!
I might hiss a little at first, but it’s because I’m so scared. I promise I mean no harm by it. With a little bit of patience and love, I will grow in confidence and we can be best friends for life. When I’m feeling confident, I do love to play! I love my treats! I’ve been eating them right out of my foster mum hands. At night I’ve been sneaking up on my foster mums bed after I think she’s fallen asleep! But let’s just keep that between us…

I love playing with the other kitties in my foster home, so a home with other kitties would be great! You could even adopt me with one of my siblings, that’d be sooo much fun! If you do already have kitties in your home, they will have to be over 18 months old! (See medical notes below). They can show me the ropes which would help my confidence a lot. I’m not quite sure a home with little kids would be good for me right now, as I’m still quite scared, but doggos should be ok as long as we have a slow introduction!

If I sound like the kitty for you, please come and meet me! I will melt your heart with my cuteness!

Medical Notes: A sibling of Ellie's likely developed Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). FIP is a genetic mutation of a common feline infection called Feline Coronavirus. It is not known why some cats develop FIP and others do not, however there are a number of factors including a genetic predisposition. There is no treatment for FIP, the disease is fatal. Dogs and humans are not at risk of transmission of this condition. There is no way to know whether any of the other fosters in the home will develop it, but after the age of 18 months old, the chances of developing it decreases significantly. Ellie could be shedding the virus and could pass it onto other cats she comes into contact with, and they are then also at risk of developing FIP, so she need to go to a home with no with other cats under the age of 18 months until she is above this age. She also needs to be inside only to not come into contact with other cats until she reaches 18 months of age. However, she can be rehomed with another cat or kitten from her current foster home as they have the same risk. We are asking for a reduced adoption fee due to the small risk of Ellie also developing FIP due to integration with the deceased kitten. Ellie was also exposed to Calicivirus, which is a respiratory infection. She did not show symptoms and was given the all clear by the vet.
