This week, we became the proud foster parents to Harmony, a sweet 8-year-old kitty whose elderly “mom”, Bernadette, sadly passed away last week. Harmony would have been taken to a shelter, where she likely would have been euthanized, were it not for the quick action of Bernadette’s neighbor, who happened to know just how special Harmony was to Bernadette.
Now, after the incredible networking of several amazing people, Harmony is safe and sound with us, but she’s still on the hunt for a permanent home. Ryan is mildly allergic to cats, so we can’t keep her forever, but he’s nice enough to tough out red, itchy eyes to give Harmony the love that she needs and deserves right now.
Since she came to us on Monday, this precious girl has come out of her shell so much! She’s very smart, talkative, and absolutely loves to be petted and brushed. You can tell she was a well-loved companion.
Before coming to us, she had never been around another animal, so we were amazed when she didn’t even bat an eyelash at Iggy. As you can see above, Iggy is already bored with his new sister, since she doesn’t seem to understand his overly exuberant attempts to play. (He is, however, quite impressed with cat toys.)
If you know anyone in the NYC area who can offer Harmony an excellent forever home, let us know. She has a clean bill of health from the vet and would do great as a single low-maintenance kitty or with a small, friendly dog.
