My name is Gertrude, and I need a home | Pet of the Week

My name is Gertrude, and I am available for adoption at the RASKC Pet Adoption Center in Kent. I was brought in by a good Samaritan on May 26. I am an affectionate love bug who would be thrilled to cuddle up with you at home. I am a gentle and loving cat who likes to take things slow. I may get nervous in new situations, so I am looking for a family who understands that I might need some time to warm up. A veterinarian has diagnosed me with having hyperthyroid. This means that the thyroid gland is producing an excess of hormones. This can be easily managed with daily medication, radioactive iodine treatment or prescription diet. A veterinarian can create a treatment plan for me. While a bit shy, once I get to know you, I will be a very devoted friend. You can find out more about Gertrude on RASKC’s website at www.kingcounty.gov/adoptapet. Click on “cat” and type in her name. You can meet other animals available for adoption in person, seven days a week, at RASKC’s King County Pet Adoption Center in Kent, 21615 64th Ave. S.; Monday: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Friday: noon to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday: noon to 5 p.m. Call 206-296-PETS, or email pets@kingcounty.gov.
