FROM PET HAVEN'S CAT BLOG:
Amelia is reported to be over 19 yrs. of age. She was surrendered at Red Lake Rosie's and has lived in a basement for the last few years of her life. Although she has short hair, she was matted to the skin and had a shave and a bath -- a-h-h-h-h, to be able to feel someone pet you again! She also had an ear infection that is being treated.
Here's what her foster mom has to say about her:
Amelia has made herself at home in her new room and seems quite content. After two years in a basement by herself, she absolutely loves to be touched-petted, held on our laps, perched on our hip or chest.
She has quite a fan club who visit often, and she sleeps every night with her human roommate, unless she is playing her fun new game of batting at her tail during the night.
She is willing to entertain occasional feline visitors too as long as they keep their distance. She has a very convincing hiss, so they tend to obey.
We are so glad that Amelia is with us, comfortable after a good grooming, and enjoying her life.
