CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Sweet Aello was surrendered when her owner could no longer care for her.
She has a history of crystals and needs to be on Urinary S/O canned (or st/ox canned) exclusively, with added water. No dry food (to help prevent her cystitis from reoccurring).
Aello has been in a foster home for the past few months as she was very nervous at the shelter. In her forever home, it will take her time to come around. Aello may never be your typical lap cat, but enjoys affection on her terms.
Aello would do best in a home with older children (16+) due to her nervous nature. She also needs to be the only pet. Even though she gets along well with other cats, adding other felines to the home can cause unseen stress prompting her cystitis to return.
She loves her cat tree and being perched on high places. Once she's laying down and comfortable you can pet her head, but she's not a fan of being picked up.
Aello is shy around people, and needs to be in a quiet home with a family that is willing to work with her with her.
She loves to play with toys, chase a laser pointer, and cat nip, but she is terrified of the vacuum.
