(Oswego, NY) – Winnie is pretty, laid-back, and almost completely white except for a little patch of tabby color on her head. She was found in a remote trailer park in Scriba trying to get out of the cold by sneaking under trailers and crying at screen doors. Fortunately, an OCHS foster caregiver rescued her, got her vet checked and has provided a temporary home for her.

Winnie needs an end to this winter and a home of her own, but she has some demands she would like to make known. She loves people, but she really hates being picked up. (And who can blame her? Imagine if you lived in a house with a giant who just swooped you up whenever he felt like it for no apparent reason?) That doesn’t mean she won’t climb in your lap when she decides to and pretty much pin you to the chair. Because the other thing she really likes to do is eat . . . and eat. She also thinks other cats are an unnecessary and unpleasant distraction. Dogs are just irrelevant. She would be a wonderful companion in a quiet household where she can be the center of attention on her own terms.

Winnie is a grown up, probably three to four, but that is only a guess. She has been spayed and is up to date on all her shots. She is healthy, lovable, and easy-going and her adoption fee of $50 will be waived for any adopter age 60 or older as part of the Humane Society’s Seniors for Seniors fee waiver program. To make arrangements to meet her call the OCHS office at 207-1070.

You can also meet her at the Humane Society’s “Get Ready for Summer” Adoption Day on Saturday, March 19th from 11 to 3 at the Oswego Elks Lodge, West Fifth and Bridge Street in Oswego. And while you are there you can pick up a delicious summery BBQ chicken dinner (including salt potatoes, coleslaw, baked beans & a roll) for only $8 and, if you want, take it home to share with Winnie. For advance sale tickets for the BBQ call Barb at 343-2959.
