Meet Elsa! This beautiful girl was named after the ice queen herself after she was found trying to survive the subzero temperatures this past winter. A kind and caring citizen of Kewanee found her and brought her into her home to warm up. She called the Humane Society because she couldn’t keep her and we sent an employee to pick her up right away. Once she was at the shelter, we realized that this poor girl was underweight and needed some TCL as most stray cats do when they come in. Elsa was so grateful of her warm bed, food and water, and a place to call her own out of the harsh weather outside.
At first, she was very timid but was still accepting of our care. Unfortunately, the vet discovered that the end of her tail had frost bite and it needed to be removed. She also had a bit of frostbite on the tips of her ears but that wasn’t as severe. Since then, she has gotten a bath, a good brushing, and lots of food to help her gain weight.
When she was first moved into our general population cat room, she spent most of her time hiding in the cat tower, not sure of what to think of the other cats. Our staff and volunteers continued to spend time with her and work on socializing her. Since then she has become very comfortable and can be seen roaming around the room or in the window keeping on eye on the staff and volunteers. Elsa is the guard of the door to the cat porch, sitting close by to keep track of which cats come in and out. Elsa is a long haired cat, so she will require regular brushing to keep her fur beautiful. She does well with other cats in the cat room as long as they aren’t too overbearing. Stop by the shelter during our visiting hours each day from 8-11 am and 5-7 pm to fall in love with this sweet girl!
