Tell us about your animal:

Little Girl is roughly 14 years old and spayed when she was a kitten. We moved from Maryland about 2 and a half years ago. Since we moved, the kids have gotten older (6 and 7 now). She is very loving with myself and my husband but is scared of the kids. She loves to sleep on my feet or my side every night. She occasionally likes to be outside and hide. She only likes soft treats, not the crunchy ones. Since our kids have gotten a little older we are trying to do more trips to Tahoe and back east to visit my family (VA and FL). Every time we take a trip she refuses to eat while we are gone (even if someone is house sitting) and the day after we return from our trip she poops and pees out of her litter box. We keep her shut in our room now since she kept peeing in the living room. She would do so much better in a less active household and possibly with an older couple. Hurts to have to find her a new home, as we all love her, but she just doesn’t seem happy with us anymore.
