Home: Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary, adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Maggie, a stunning 9-month-old, long haired tortoiseshell currently in the care of Another Chance Animal Rescue of North Berwick, Maine.

Maggie was hand-raised in a shelter environment. She recently made the move to the Another Chance Animal Rescue, and while it saved her life, it has also confused and stressed out this sweet girl. To top it off, she was adopted and then returned because she was taking too long to “warm up” after only 4 days.

Maggie is looking for someone who’ll give her enough time to open up. She loves scratches, but not being held like a baby. She likes being up near your neck and shoulders and having her head rubbed, the rescue reports. She always has a purr for you and loves to be scratched right at the base of her tail.

A quiet, patient home would be best for Maggie. “One that has love, patience, and understanding to give. This may be someone who has well-mannered cats, dogs, kids … or perhaps that of a single or older person looking for a companion animal,” the rescue says. “What’s most important to Maggie is that she can trust you. Once she does, she will reciprocate all the love and affection you show her.”

If you think Maggie is the companion for you, contact Marilyn at Another Chance Animal Rescue by calling 207-490-2855.
