If you detect sadness in the eyes of this beautiful tortoiseshell, it is not surprising. A 12 year old senior cat, Misty lost her home when her owner moved. Before leaving, the owner dropped Misty off in a strange neighborhood expecting her to survive with no guarantee of shelter, water or food.

Alerted to the situation, Dusty Paws volunteers searched for Misty and located her in a shelter. She had been picked up over a mile from where she was abandoned after wandering for at least two weeks, probably searching for her old home. Misty was skin and bones from her ordeal but still so sweet that shelter staff and volunteers were charmed and considered her very adoptable. Dusty Paws Rescue took her into foster care.

Misty holds no grudges and patiently awaits a permanent new home with a guardian who will keep her forever. Safe in her foster home, she is gaining her weight back and is now about 6 1/2 lbs. She gets along nicely with the other cats in the home as well as the dogs. She will even share a lap with another foster cat. Sweet and easygoing, Misty will talk to you and follow you around the house.
