Willow, a “very laid back” senior cat at the Toronto Humane Society, is in need of a loving home.
The 11-year-old gray and white medium-haired domestic cat was transferred from the Northumberland Humane Society in May.
“She is beautiful and lovely,” said THS spokesman Lucas Solowey.
“She is very relaxed. She takes her lounging seriously. Her morning routine includes a quick trip from her cozy bed to her food bowl, followed by a quick return to her favorite spot for some intense lounging. Her favorite pastime is sunbathing so she can observe and see what’s going on.

Solowey said that doesn’t mean Willow doesn’t perk up every now and then.
“Although she indulges in zooming and running around every now and then, she prefers a more stationary life. She enjoys a little play, especially if it involves a string or a toy that she can play at her leisure.”
A minor complication is that Willow has diabetes, which requires daily injections under the skin for food – the Society will show how to do this – and vet-prescribed food.
“There are some care procedures for Willow that require some attention,” Solowey said.
Otherwise, Willow gets along well with other cats and small children, but prefers solo status.
“She enjoys being petted and cuddled,” Solowey said. “She enjoys being brushed, especially when she’s on her lap. She enjoys the affection. She is fine with other cats, but we think she would prefer to be the only cat. We think she enjoys being the queen of the house.”

UPDATE: Arwin, a nine-year-old cat who was featured in the Forever Friend column last month with his brother Dasher, is still looking for his forever home after Dasher, also 9, unfortunately died humanely due to chronic kidney failure had to be euthanized.
