Meet Mercedes, the cutest roly-poly in the Northeast! But don't you dare touch that adorable belly! You see, Miss Mercy is a very special senior cat who is declawed and requires a very special adopter. She needs someone who wants her despite her being declawed, not because she's declawed. Her ideal home is a quiet one without children where she is the only pet in the household for the rest of her life. Her ideal companion is one who clearly understands cat body language, is extremely patient and kind and who will let her call the shots (she is a cat after all). It will take some time and understanding to build a meaningful relationship with Mercy, but the reward is gratifying. Her foster mom has a great relationship with her because she listens to Mercy, lets her decide when she wants to be touched, whether it's petting or brushing, and when she needs to be left alone. She thrives when on a consistent routine and she has a great appetite. She uses the litter box perfectly and will go home with all of her things- litter box, carrier, crate,  toys, two cat beds, brushes, bowls and a timed feeder. 

She loves chasing her Temptations treats across the floor, being brushed with her favorite brush and attacking feathers. Her sweet side is very sweet- she wakes her foster mom up by licking her nose and kneading on her face. She is a great work companion and will sit beside you quietly enjoying your company. While she might never be a cat you can pick up and nuzzle, she does have her unique ways of showing affection and she appreciates human touch once she feels comfortable and can trust you. And she's super soft!

Besides needing to lose a few pounds, she is very healthy and her blood work looks good. She is spayed and UTD on vaccines. If you feel like Mercedes is the cat for you, fill out an application today!
