Food, litter boxes and scoops, carrier. Last vet visit about 3 months ago; lab results normal.
100% indoor cat. Emma is very small, calm, sweet, and quiet - except for her very loud purr when she is curled up on your lap. She does have a squeaky little voice she uses to let you know she's ready to eat. Emma is content to sit and gaze out the window, curl up next to or on top of you, and sometimes to roll around on the floor. She is a senior cat who just needs a loving home during her golden years. Emma is not actually my cat, but I have known her since she was a kitten. She belongs to a family member who has agreed to let me try to rehome her.
In the last several months, Emma has started to sometimes defecate outside of the litter box. Occasionally the stool is soft. My family member is not emotionally equipped to deal with this. I have taken Emma to the vet within the last few months and her health is good, including bloodwork results. I believe the potty problem is likely related to diet, stress (Emma and family member recently moved to a new house), litter box cleanliness, or a combination of these. However, I have not been successful in getting my family member to have the patience to troubleshoot this. Instead, Emma has been banished to live in the garage - not allowed in the house - since the family member does not want to deal with cleaning up potty accidents. This breaks my heart because it is very hot in the garage. Emma is sad and miserable in there. It is not physically or emotionally healthy for her. This is also frustrating because this type of treatment will not help improve her potty problems. There is not much else I can do or say to this family member, and at this point I don't know what to do but seek help from someone who would be willing to adopt Emma.
I want to take her in myself, but I have two big, rambunctious male cats. Emma has stayed with my cats and me once before for an extended cat sitting, and it was very stressful for her. She hated my cats. So, I'm torn about moving her from one stressful environment to another. It would be a last resort. I am really hoping someone out there with an appropriately calm home, someone with the patience to make sure she has a good-quality diet and a clean litter box, will help us out by taking her in. She is a wonderful friend and I love to visit her, but she needs a better home. I don't want any fees and I would be willing to share any unforeseen veterinary expenses. I will also transport her to nearly anywhere within Southern California, preferably in or near San Bernardino County. I live in LA but Emma is in Fontana.
Please definitely feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
