Olivia came to the RAPS cat sanctuary via the No. 5 Rd. shelter two and a half years ago. As a senior cat, Olivia's chances of adoption weren't great: Many people, unfortunately, don't want to take on an older pet. It's too bad, because Olivia is an absolute sweetheart.

Olivia loves to be visited and responds to any attention with great pleasure. Leslie says she used to be more outgoing, but has become less so over time. She still loves company and cuddles as much as ever, but has become less likely to seek them out on her own. Olivia is missing her pats: Let's all make an effort to visit her in the kitten/gericatrics trailer and spend some time with her.

  1. Claire, thanks for highlighting my little Olivia. She has got to be the sweetest cat there is (ok, maybe there are a few more sweet ones in the Moore house!). I always make it a point to visit her every Thursday. Such a sweet, sweet girl.
