Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Mama
Posted on May 23rd, 2014 by Laura Fonda
On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Wednesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.
Queen Anne View has not met any of these pets – SAS is providing us with the description, as they know them well. We encourage potential adopters to get in touch with SAS and work with them to evaluate the compatibility of your home and a new pet.

This lovely lady is Mama, and her name reflects all the nurturing qualities she displays daily. She loves to show affection and warmth. She is a lap cat and enjoys nestling up to you whether you are sitting on the couch or lying in bed.
Mama is about 8 years young and gets along well with other cats. It took her no time at all to befriend her foster mom’s 1 year old cat, proving that she can keep up with the youngins. In fact, she’d prefer a home where either her person is home a lot, or where she has another cat to keep her company while her person is at work.
Mama needs a little extra TLC because she has diabetes. She’s on a special diet and requires a very low dose of insulin twice a day. She’s in great health otherwise, and is super easy to medicate. The vet says that perhaps over time she can be cured.
Regardless, she’s a low-key kitty that’s easy to care for. She’s house-trained, spayed and arrived at the shelter declawed. Mama will make someone a great pet, and give a lot of love in return!
Mama (SAS ID #13-12462) is being lavished with attention in a foster home, she is not at the Shelter. If you would like to meet her, please call the Foster Care Hotline at 206-684-0685 to arrange a meeting. Thank you!
