Maika is a symbol for our institution. She was the first cat we rescued 10 years ago and headed the long list of cats we have today at the shelter.
Although all abandonments are cruel and condemnable, Maika’s was especially cruel. She was four years old when she was left in a cardboard box, at the very door of the shelter.
Maika suffered a lot, and that is why her character is very reserved even though she is very good at heart. She continues to be “angry” with the world.
She will allow you to pet her once, maybe three times if you’re giving her food. Outside she’s much more human friendly and lets you rub her more. We believe the small space she’s currently living has a great impact in her emotional state.
She is currently 14 years old, and the stress that she is suffering has affected her health. She suffers from very acute alopecia, but lately she has already suffered epileptic attacks and it worries us a lot about how she will end her days in our facilities.
We would love to find a home for her where she could live her last stage with dignity and peace of mind.
