The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) is seeking adopters for a twelve year old female cat named Asimov who has been looking for a new home for more than two years.
“Asimov was surrendered to us in July 2015 after her owner lost her housing and was unable to care for her anymore,” said PHS/SPCA’s Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox. “Since she’s been with us, Asimov has received special attention from our staff and volunteers and is well cared for, but she still wants to have a home of her own.”
Adopting an older cat has many benefits, including not having to “kitten proof” a home or go through the time-consuming process of raising a rambunctious kitten. A senior cat’s personality is already developed, so there won’t be any surprises about temperament. They also understand the concepts of approval and rewards so senior cats are more eager to please their owners.
“As a senior cat who wants to be the only pet in a household, Asimov has been overlooked by adopters for more than two years now and we hope by sharing her story someone will come forward and open their heart and home to this lovely cat,” according to Tarbox. “At the Peninsula Humane Society animals do not run out of time and we’ll keep caring for Asimov as long as it takes for her to find a new home.”
PHS/SPCA is an open-door shelter that accepts all animals, regardless of age, breed or size and since 2003 has been successful in finding homes for 100% of the healthy cats and dogs in their care. PHS/SPCA saves the lives of more than 6,000 animals each year and through their donor funded Hope Program they provide life-saving medical and behavior treatment for more than 150 dogs and cats each month.
Asimov is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $50.
People interested in meeting Asimov should visit the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame, or call 650-340-7022.
