Cat of the Week: Queenie

URGENT – Queenie (A15484929) may have lucked out by being “evicted” from her last home.

She was surrendered to the shelter after living with them for more than a year. She came in wearing a flea collar, but it didn’t do her any good since she was covered in fleas and suffers from severe flea allergy dermatitis.

Poor Queenie is crusty, scabby, and has hair loss, but we know with good food and some time, her hair will grow back into the glossy gorgeous black coat she’s meant to have. 

The “owner” didn’t seem to have anything really to say about Queenie. Apparently she was her daughter’s cat.

Poor Queenie is a nice, but misunderstood girl, looking for a second chance. We think in the right environment, with someone who actually loved and cared about her, she’d be a wonderful companion. Everyone deserves a second chance, don’t you think?
