***SECOND CHANCE*** -IT’S NO MYSTERY—BLUES CLUES IS A SUPER SWEET ANGEL! Fourteen year old Blues Clues is another precious pet betrayed by her former family. When her owner got sick and had to move in with relatives, they would not permit this long-time beloved pet to come along. Sad sigh! Blues Clues is a low maintenance, lovely lady who would love to spend her golden years curled up on the couch next to her new purrson. Could that special someone be you? Blues Clues is shy, docile and would probably do best in a home without kids. If you can open your heart and home to this sweet senior, please reserve her online or contact a NH rescue for help with transportation. Let’s help write a happy ending to this sad tale. Make the call for Blues Clues and be the change that you want to see in the world!!!

They described her as friendly, shy, mellow, quiet, independent, and has a low activity level. She was alert upon intake, but was easy to handle and didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Blues Clues tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. They also note one concern: Blues Clues has been urinating on the floor every night, for the past 2-3 months. Veterinarians and trainers have not been consulted, so we are unaware whether this behavior is due to medical reasons. We advise any potential adopter to be prepared for this behavior, and prepared manage it if it appears in a future home. Methods of managing and attempting to modify this behavior can be discussed with the Adoption Counselors. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
