Looking for love in all the wrong places!
This sweet, six-year-old ebony female is Scooter. Prior to arriving at the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch in July, 2012, Scooter was a stray who had been hanging around her neighbour’s garage.
Like many before her, the whereabouts of Scooter’s former guardian remain somewhat of a mystery. While Scooter is grateful that her neighbours were kind enough to keep her fed and dry, she is now looking for love elsewhere.
When Scooter first came to the shelter, she was curious and slightly overwhelmed by all the new sights, sounds and smells. However, with a little extra T.L.C. from staff and volunteers, Scooter has settled in remarkably well.
Since Scooter has adjusted to her new surroundings, those who have gotten to know her have noted what a gentle, sweet soul she has.
A staff member says, “You can tell just how terribly Scooter wants to bond with you. You can see it in her eyes - how content she is just to be near you.
“She is usually very quiet, but when it’s time for you to leave her, she’ll starting meowing. It’s almost as if she’s trying to remind you to come visit her again soon.
“Scooter’s heart is most at ease when someone just sits with her. She’ll even rest her head on your hand and slowly drift to sleep.”
Scooter loves attention but is coyer than some of the others, so you might have to make the first move. However, it should only take a few minutes before she’s smitten with you. Hint: a good chin scratch is always the key to her heart!
Once Scooter is comfortable with you, she’ll roll onto her back and stare adoringly into your eyes for as long as you let her.
Scooter would be happiest in a calm, quiet adult home.
