Delilah’s Personality

Delilah is especially responsive and affectionate to those she loves, readily purring and snuggling. She’s a sensitive girl, very in tune with your mood or health. She is also eccentric and can be silly enough. Delilah is quite intelligent. She can carry on a long conversation, waiting for her turn to talk. Yet, she isn’t noisily vocal like some cats, not at all. Conversing with her is a treat.

Delilah’s Current Home Environment

Our home is a 4 bedroom one level house. The occupants are two adults, six cats and a Pomeranian. The house is generally quiet, punctuated by regular burst of music, voices, barking.

Delilah’s Current Family:

We are two older adults with pets. My husband works as a petroleum engineer and I am a retired teacher/psychologist. Our children are grown and there are no grandchildren. Obviously, we are fond of our pets and are seriously heartbroken by the problem with Delilah.

Delilah’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

We most frequently call Delilah, “Lily”. She also responds to “Sweet Dee”.
We feed her Iam’s Lamb and Rice kibble, and Friskies with gravy for her wet food.
She also likes some table food, especially hot dogs which she has been known to sneak out of the pot. (She once proudly presented us with a stolen, whole hotdog which she had snagged). Delilah loves to watch TV. She is seriously interested in whatever is on the the screen. Her very favorite activity is to lounge on us, watching TV. She loves to be kissed on the top of her head, and to be petted and loved any way. (Since she is not accustomed to strangers, her new family must be patient, waiting for her to feel completely secure. She will definitely attach deeply to a new family because her need for an affectionate bond is so great.)

Cute Delilah Story:

Why is Delilah Being Rehomed?

Several years ago Delilah’s best friend died. She became touchy about other cats approaching her, being quick to hiss, although she never attacked anyone. Three of her housemates took exception to her crankiness and began to pick on her, while the other two patiently ignored her. After a year of trying to manage this situation, we had to separate the cats.
Delilah now has her own room and must take turns roaming the house. On most days, this amounts to only three hours when she is Not alone in her room. Even though she has adapted to this, it’s easy to see that she feels so lonely. She runs away from us when it’s time for her to go back to her room. It’s excruciating to see her so unhappy.

Delilah’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

We would like her to be an only cat since it’s not possible to predict if a new housemate would be the patient type. Delilah gets along well with our 10 pound Pomeranian, so a small, respectful
Dog would be alright. She hasn’t been around kids but I believe that she would respond happily to a child’s attention. She does love attention. We would like for her to be with people who have plenty of Time for her and that she would have more room to roam than her current space. Of course, an Indoor Home Only, and an understanding that declawing is evil. (She is always good about using a sisal post.). Her new people should understand cats! We so want this lovely girl to have a family who will love her like crazy and will treasure her as we do.
