Early this year, a black and white cat, Valentine (Vali), was brought in to Community Cat Club in South Jersey. The 10-year-old tuxedo was immediately cuddly and just wanted to be around people.
“She was surrendered when her elderly owner could no longer care for her,” Sara Sharp, founder of Community Cat Club, told Love Meow. Vali was a laid-back and sweet gal from the start, and never hesitated to come up to people for attention and snuggles.
She quickly settled into her foster home and made sure that everyone around her received a daily dose of her affection.
“We also had to get her a dental because she had tooth resorption, so now her lip always gets stuck on her gums and it’s the cutest thing,” Sara shared with Love Meow.
No one expected that Vali would wind up staying in foster care for months on end when she first arrived. “We were hoping we could find her a new home as soon as possible, so she could go right from her current home to her new home.”
Six months passed by, and Vali found herself still anticipating her happily-ever-after. Despite many social media posts about her, no one showed interest and she was somehow overlooked.
Vali didn’t seem to let anything faze her and continued to live everyday to the fullest. She was simply content with a roof over her head, people to cuddle with, and a comfy place to nap on.
She has befriended other cats, kittens and even dogs at her foster home. She emanates such charm and calmness about her everywhere she graces. “Vali has the cutest chirp, will follow you everywhere, and will tap you for more pets.”
