My friends over at Fuzzy Tales posted this on Friday, September 24, 2010 and I was truly touched by Tessia's story. I think because Lilly my cat is so similar, white in color, blue eyes and deaf. I know first hand how long it took Lilly to trust our family and I can only pray that Tessia finds her furever home soon.
Thank you Kea for letting me post this and thank you for reading!

Gananoque and District Humane Society. Again, we know most of you are in the U.S. and overseas, but still....We've learned never to underestimate the power of the Internet -- and the Cat Blogosphere in particular! At the very least, Tessia certainly could use purrs and prayers and crossed paws for a wonderful forever home! Our mom has sent her info to the local paper for inclusion as next week's Cat-of-the-Week feature.
Domestic Short Hair-White
Age: Approx. 5 years
Tessia, who was born deaf, was brought to us in early June 2010 after her owner passed away. She was placed in a foster home to give staff a better idea of her needs and any special considerations she would need to have in a home environment. Her foster mom informed us that she was avid climber and spent most of her time up high, no doubt a coping strategy to provide a "bird's eye view" and avoid surprises.
Tessia is particularly clean and fastidious and will occasionally lick people's hands. She is a sweet girl who needs some time in the right forever home to heal from the loss of her human and regain her trust. If you feel you can give this beautiful girl a loving and understanding home, please come and meet her!
Tessia is spayed and is up-to-date with routine vaccinations.
