It’s not always easy for cats to find their forever homes, especially when they’re not tiny, cute, rambunctious kittens who catch people’s eye. But the Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland is trying to find a senior feline with a gentle nature her forever home.

“We often get calls for help from owners who either are going into associated living or into situations where they can no longer keep their friends,”Jess Byer, Critteraid animal director said.

“Most of these cats unfortunately are seniors...And with that comes less of a desire with everyone who is looking for kittens.”

Martha is at the age of fourteen and is classified as a senior cat, which is any cat over 10 years of age. Byer points out that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have many wonderful years left to spend with someone.

“She just needs somebody who can give her some support, she’s very stressed.”

Sadly that stress has lead Martha to pull her own fur, leaving a bit of a bare path on her.

“That’s not anything that can’t be managed with the right TLC and the right quiet,” Byer adds. “Martha would do best in a home without dogs and without kids, just somebody who wants a loving companion who wants to sit on their lap and tell them stories all-day.”
