Heidi needs to get out of hiding...

This is a very special cat who needs a special home:

This cat was named Heidi because by day, she is in hiding. She spends her days in pipes that run along the house. To give her some freedom the owners let her out at night, but when she gets back in, straight to the pipes she goes.
Her owners can no longer keep her due to "allergies". She was due to be euthanized last week but at the last minute was spared.
I have been given a few weeks to find her another home.

This is not a lap cat, although she can be with a lot of love and patience. She is approximately 3 years old. she will allow to be petted when she is eating.
Heidi and her litter were born outside to a feral mom. Once socialized Heidi and her sister found their forever home. One night her and sister were let outside, but only Heidi returned and since then has not really trusted or has been close to humans. This is a long shot,and Heidi's last chance ; if you know anyone who would love a challenge and help Heidi trust again...she will be well worth it.

what a pretty girland what a sad start she'd had

so these people were giving her a death sentence because they supposedly all of a sudden have allergies

if she's outside at night and in the pipes in the daytime,she probably has not had much lovehopefully someone can help this little girl

Definition of "allergies":

When you don't have the guts to just tell people you are tired or bored of taking care of your pet.

Yes, that is what has happened ....her child gets nose bleeds every day due to the severity of the allergies
Heidi's sister probably got hit by a car since I just found out they live almost right next to the high 20 in the west island....

well just when you spend all your free time trying to help and find homes.......I don't like people anymore!!!!!

The lady that has Heidi has deemed her unadoptable according to her and decided that she will have her euthanized...or drop her off at the SPCA...which means she will be euthanized!!! as soon as she gets out of the pipes and traps her.

I gave her a few options, one of which was a colony which is being controled and fed and watched by a wonderful lady....but nope!!! she would rather have her euthanized because she could not bare to think of her outside all winter...even when I told her that she would be in a winterized shelter...
lord, the cat spends all her nights outside and she is happy...and now this woman would rather see her put down...

What an idiot. I'm quite sure Heidi would be much happier in a colony, even if it's outside, than dead. It's unreal that she would rather kill her.

Maybe next time you talk to her you should just forgo the "kinder" word of euthanize and just ask why she would rather kill Heidi than allow her to live a long happy life.
