Editor's note: Swiss was a long-term resident of the Richmond SPCA who finally found her home last week. She was included in this week's Adoption Center News, but we wanted to give you a more detailed update from her new family.
Elphie (short for Elphaba) is settling in very well! Her new name comes from the musical Wicked (she's named after the misunderstood "wicked" witch).
She has her own room as long as she needs it to get used to coexisting with other creatures. Other cats in the family break in frequently to visit her, which she doesn't mind too much (they keep their distance; they're just curious). She's met one dog, who she gave a good hiss; the dog backed off, and all was well after that.
She's eating really well and using her little box. She loves napping in her various beds or with whichever person comes to see her for a nap. She is super playful and loves making a toy out of anything and everything! She comes when she's called and loves to interact with us, be it while getting petted, playing with a toy, or talking – she chirps and meows to us all the time! As you can see, she can't get enough of watching the world go by outside of her big windows.
Thanks to the Beckners for giving Elphie the forever home she has been waiting for so long! To read the biographies of our regular bloggers, please click here.
