Pet of the Week: Suri – a unique girl in many ways

Suri is unique in many ways.  Not only is she interesting with a one-of-a-kind look, she also has a special name.

Suri is a multi-cultural name with many origins.  In Hebrew, it means ‘princess’ and is a nickname for Sarah.  The Indian origin means ‘the sun’ and from Persian roots it is ‘rose’.  She is perfectly named – a sweet little princess.

She has been waiting for that special home after being in a shelter for many years and was transferred from the Blue Mountain Animal Shelter when it closed.

At 10 years old, Suri is initially timid with people but patience will be richly rewarded with this senior.  She is spayed and vaccinated and good with other cats.  It would be ideal if she could spend her remaining years in a nice quiet home.

Appointments are needed to meet Suri.

The Shelter offers a safe place for pets that have no choices left.  “Sometimes, their owners have had no choice either. They, too, may have aged and had to move into a facility where their loved companions are not allowed or, in the final step of life, may have died leaving their pets behind.  Whatever the reason, these faithful friends have no choice but to wait … wait for someone new to take them in and love them,” says Shelter Manager, Deb Takeda.
