Sher (Elly)

Sher – Female – Grey-Black Tabby

Estimated Birthdate:   August 15, 2017

Sher is one of 3 felines (Sher, Sunny and Sparky) that were found surviving alone in Canal Flats RV park area.   Sher was brought in to ICAN first.  The next day Sunny and Sparky arrived and it was a quite interesting to watch the reunion and how they had missed each other for those 24 hours.   The 3 are very bonded at the moment and we hope integration with other cats at ICAN will help to diminish that need to be together.  They are being fostered at the home of an ICAN Volunteer and for now appear to be happy to be in a safe nurturing environment.

Sher ( oldest and momma to someone ) arrived as the most timid and reclusive.   She is coming around very slowly, learning to trust again or maybe for the first time.  It’s very obvious sometimes that she longs for affection.

She began her days with us by staying out of reach and growling when approached, or sometimes even hissing but never lashing out.  Because of that we were able to inroduce her to volunteers pets and she soon also started to relax and enjoy them.  The two kittens are nursing on her.

We are not sure which one of the kittens is hers, if either, but would think it most likely Sunny.  Somewhere along the way she picked up another kitten which tells you what a little sweetie she is inside – just picture the 3 banding together to survive as best they could.   Thank you to the community member who cared enough to get them into a safe place.

ADOPTED January 9, 2019 together with Sunny
