Marcia Found A Home

Marcia found the perfect home with Tom.

A few months ago we highlighted a beautiful cat named Marcia who was having trouble adjusting to our Adoption Center and desperately needed to find a family to call her own.   Marcia had been rescued by Heaven Can Wait as part of a litter of six kittens.   Volunteers aptly named each feline after one of the Brady kids: Marcia, Jan, Cindy, Greg, Peter and Bobby.

That was 5 ½ years ago and one by one all of the Brady kittens found new adopted homes.  But last year poor Marcia was returned to Heaven Can Wait because of chronic Urinary Tract Infections that needed monitoring.

Marcia was evaluated by Dr. Henderson, our Veterinary Director and with the help of a special diet quickly resumed her life as a normal cat.

But Marcia remained in our Adoption Center month after month without finding a new home because she had the stigma of being a cat with “special needs.” 

Then Tom walked into Marcia’s life and it was love at first sight.  Tom had recently lost his 20 year-old female grey cat and beautiful Marcia reminded him of his beloved pet. 

 Tom contact Heaven Can Wait to give us an update about Marcia, who is now called Neko.

“Hello everyone at Heaven Can Wait,

Well it’s been 1 week since I brought Neko – the cat formerly known as Marcia – home.  Neko is a Japanese word meaning cat, so yes I named the cat…Cat, but in Japanese.

On her first day Neko mostly explored her new home.  She wanted to be by herself and she hid a lot, but after that she felt comfortable with her surroundings and came out to visit.  I’ll tell you she is not the same docile cat I saw in the shelter.   She is the most attention starved cat I have ever seen.

Neko stands next to me when she wants to be petted and uses her head as a battering ram on my leg to let me know what she wants.  She is very active is constantly running up and down the stairs in fast forward – like an oversized kitten.

She has a favorite place to sit on an old couch we have turned on its end.   She goes up to the top to watch us and any movement she comes down to get attention.  She is very happy and I am very happy so it was a perfect match.  

Thanks for all your help; we will have many years of fun together.
