Hello! I’m Elsa!


I’m a short-haired black and white female of 3 years. I had a road accident in March 2017 and suffered nerve damage. My tail had to amputated and I’ve been left with incomplete bladder control. I do sometimes use my litter tray but can also dribble urine wherever I am and sometimes my bladder has to be expressed manually. The Ark has noticed that when I’m more active I can relieve my bladder better than when I’m inactive.I’m otherwise fit and well. My owners have done everything possible to rehabilitate me but, with small children in the house, have found it difficult to manage my bladder problems. I’ve been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and eat both wet and dry food.

I’m a lovely friendly cat, have lived with young children and always been good with them and have never shown any aggression. I’m also known to be good with other cats and dogs. I was completely house-trained before my accident and it was possible to leave me for a few hours as I used a cat-flap to go outside which I enjoyed doing. When in the house, I slept anywhere. I’m hoping somebody will be able to offer me a home who can accommodate my impaired bladder control which has gradually improved since my accident, but I don’t know if it will improve any further now. I can live with other pets and would be more suitable with older children who would understand my problem. But because of the possibility that I may be at the Ark for a while, I’m also featured on the Permanent Residents page and am available for sponsoring.
