Indianapolis IN – Adorable Senior Brown Tabby Cat Seeks Loving Foster or Forever Home – Meet Josie


Meet Josie, Brown Tabby Cat For Adoption in Whitestown IN

Josie is a Female Brown Tabby Cat for adoption to a very loving home in or near Whitestown, IN. This very special Brown Tabby Cat is 16 years old and weighs about 8 pounds. Despite being a teenager, Josie is in good health. She has been spayed and is up to date on shots. Josie has Hyperthyroidism for which she takes medication. This will be supplied by her owner’s daughter for as long as needed.

Josie is an amazingly cuddly little cat. She has a purr that steals your heart. It is rare to find such an affectionate and companionable little cat.

Josie’s elderly owner passed away suddenly last September. Her daughter took Josie into her own home, but it has become very clear that Josie is not happy, and needs to be in a quiet, only pet home where she can be the Queen Bee. Josie would make a fantastic companion for an elderly or retired cat lover looking for some feline sunshine. She is a very precious little girl, and has lots of love left to offer a special someone.

If you have room in your heart and home for this extremely sweet little Brown Tabby Cat, please reach out today. Josie looks forward to purring her way into your heart and home.

Josie’s Current Home Environment

Josie is originally from a home with two other Brown Tabby Cats and one owner. Josie’s owner passed away in September (my mother) and I took in Josie and my sister took in her Brown Tabby Cat siblings. I already had two Brown Tabby Cats and a dog. My two Brown Tabby Cats have been very territorial since she arrived and have not made our house very inviting for poor Josie. Josie currently is staying confined in a spare bedroom to help keep her safe from Brown Tabby Cat brawls and keep her anxiety down.
Her original environment was as an indoor kitty in a one story, three bedroom home. Her current home is a two story, four bedroom home but before being confined, she only occupied the upper half of the upstairs to avoid interactions with the other Brown Tabby Cats.

Josie’s Current Family:

Josie spent the first 16 years of life living with my mother. When Josie was two, she got two Brown Tabby Cat siblings, Tigger and Punkin. Josie was definitely the leader of her siblings and if there was any bullying, she was the one to start it. My mother LOVED animals and cherished all of her kitties. She had told me and my sister that she was worried what would happen to them if she passed away and asked that we take them in if that ever occurred.
When she did pass away, my sister and I made the tough decision to split them up to allow them to stay with family. I already had two Brown Tabby Cats and a dog and my sister had one Brown Tabby Cat and a dog so we decided that she would take Tigger and Punkin (siblings) and I would take Josie.
Josie has been living with me, my husband and our two Brown Tabby Cats and one dog since September of 2018.

Josie’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

Josie loves playing fetch with straws. She is also a big fan of toy mice and feathers.
Josie is currently eating Purina urinary tract dry food due to our other Brown Tabby Cats dietary needs and gets Meow Mix wet food with shrimp each evening. She loves all Brown Tabby Cat treats she is given and Brown Tabby Catnip is always a popular treat and toy.
When Josie is not playing with her toys, or looking out the window, she loves to take Brown Tabby Cat naps in bed.

Cute Josie Story:

Josie is a notorious straw thief. She is very stealthy and will even attempt to steal a straw directly from a cup. But once she successfully obtains the prize, she will turn herself in red-pawed in hopes of a merciful game of fetch.

Why is Josie Being Rehomed?

Josie’s owner (my mother) passed away in September of 2018 at which time she came to live with me, my husband, our two Brown Tabby Cats, Chloe and Boo, and our dog, Louie. Upon arrival, we confined Josie to our guestroom so all the animals could get used to each other’s scents without having to directly interact. We followed all the advice on introducing a new pet and in the beginning, thought things were going well. Unfortunately, after a couple of months after Josie joined our family, Chloe and Boo began to terrorize her. There were daily+ fights that ended in lost fur, scratches and cuts. Josie was scared to venture from my husband’s office (her favorite room in the house) and when she did, she was always on high alert. We had to move food and water into the office to ensure she was getting enough food as her weight was steadily declining. Josie then began spraying in hopes of marking off parts of the house for her own. After this began, we had to re-isolate her in the guestroom at which time the spraying immediately ended. Josie’s anxiety is much better now that she is isolated but living in a room by herself is not a sustainable option. Although it breaks my heart to rehome Josie, I know it is what is best for her and for our other pets.

Josie’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

Based on the behavior issues that came out due to the other pets, Josie should be the only pet within her new home so she can feel comfortable and to ensure she does not start spraying again. Her new owner should have time to cuddle and play fetch and needs to be willing to give her her daily Methimazole. She should continue to be an indoor cat since she is 26y/o and doesn’t have outdoor skills needed to survive.

Additional Comments:

Since Josie is currently being confined to one room, she is very lonely and would like to find her new forever owner ASAP.
