Like so many of the greats in human and feline history, Wilma’s arrival was foretold long before her time. In T. S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” (1939) – upon which the hit musical “Cats” was based – he writes of a kitty whose “coat is of the tabby kind, with tiger stripes and leopard spots.” Eliot calls his feline friend Jennyanydots, and describes her as an “Old Gumbie Cat” who sleeps all day and comes to life at night to teach the mice crocheting. But we know her simply as Wilma!
Wilma is one of our team of hurricane kitties. In Fall 2018, the storms blew her all the way from South Carolina, tiger stripes, leopard spots and all. And we’re so glad they did, because she’s an extra special girl. Wilma’s hobbies include sitting on her perch and watching the world go by and thinking deep thoughts. She’s a highly literary cat of great whimsy and promise, and while she’s ever so thankful to her rescuers in the shelter, her secret wish is for a home of her very own. Wilma dreams of sprawling on the sofa in front of a roaring fire, and reading mid-twentieth century poetry to her heart’s content. We think she’s earned it – don’t you?
Wilma will be great in any type of home including with older children and small dogs. She has no special needs and will make a very special addition to the family.
Like all SNAP pets, Wilma is spayed, up to date on shots and vaccinations, and micro-chipped. And ready to meet you at one of our adoption centers or by special appointment.
