Ansel

Domestic Shorthair Spayed Female 8 years 16 pounds

Ansel is the biggest sweetheart!  She is a rather affectionate girl who enjoys gentle petting and will happily cuddle or sit on your lap.  She also doesn’t mind being picked up if properly supported.  But much like any cat, this dignified senior also has moments when she’d rather be left alone.  She’ll let you know when she’s had enough and doesn’t tolerate rough play.  Ansel enjoys following you around and just being near you.  She has the most endearing chirp of a meow that quickly draws you into a conversation with her!  Ansel is also quite content relaxing by herself and keeping watch over her surroundings.  She’d probably love to gaze out of windows in her new home and survey her “kingdom”.  Ansel can be playful and will play if encouraged to but is also happy to entertain herself.  Nothing is cuter than watching her get frisky!  Ansel is a rather rotund girl (which just adds to her cuteness factor), so getting her on a healthy diet and providing her with more activity will be beneficial.  She loves kitty treats, but be sure to give them in moderation.  Despite the hustle and bustle of the cat room, Ansel remains a calm, loving cat.  She has reportedly lived OK with cats and dogs before, but would need slow introductions to them in a new home and will do best with animals that give her space.  Slow, positive introductions would be the key to her successfully living with other animals.  Truth be told, she’d probably be happiest as your one and only so she can lavish you with affection without the need to worry about other animals.  Ansel enjoys the company of people and should be OK with older kids who treat her gently.  She is a very sweet, attentive cat who would be a great fit for someone looking for a low maintenance companion.  An indoor home is a must as she is too social to be stuck outside away from you.  This sweet girl has been waiting a long time to find her perfect someone and is ready for life outside of a shelter.  Someone who understands and appreciates her personality will love her to pieces.  She is a gem!

Ansel is currently residing in an employee’s office.  If you are interested in meeting her, please inquire about her in the cattery, at the shelter front desk or email Stefanie at sleth@idahohumanesociety.org!
