Pet of the Week: Gertrude

This pretty kitty is our Pet of the Week!

Gertrude came to us in May by someone who found her wandering. She’s an affectionate love bug who would be thrilled to cuddle up with you at home!

Gertrude’s personality color is Bashful Blue, meaning she likes to take things slow at first. She’s a gentle and loving cat that may get nervous in new situations, so she would like a family who understands that she might need some time to warm up.

A veterinarian diagnosed Gertrude with having hyperthyroid. This means that her thyroid gland is producing an excess of hormones. This disease is easily managed with daily medication, radioactive iodine treatment, or prescription diet. A veterinarian can create a treatment plan.

While a bit shy, once Gertrude gets to know you she will be a very devoted friend! You can find out more about Gertrude on our website, www.kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet, or visit her in person at our Pet Adoption Center in Kent.
