Seele came into the LAWS foster program at 3 weeks of age in the fall of 2019.  She had suffered a crush injury of some sort and did not have use of the lower half of her body.  She was bottle fed and began to thrive as she grew.  When it became apparent that movement of her lower limbs was not going to progress past a certain point, we began acupuncture and laser treatment bi monthly.  Over time she gained more feeling in her legs and feet and is now able to move her legs independently. She is not able to stand alone, but can stand for brief moments when assisted.  Her back strength has improved dramatically and her upper body strength is what allows her to be impressively mobile.  She is able to climb stairs, furniture, and cat trees easily.  She loves to be outside, and especially enjoys camping.  She loves the grass and rolling in the dirt.  The biggest problem with finding an adoptive home is the fact that she wears diapers (size N).  She knows what a litter box is and what it’s for, but she is unable to eliminate when she is in it.  She urinates at random times and does NOT need her bladder expressed, which is a bonus.  She has a fairly predictable potty schedule and that routine is helpful.  In the last six months she has, unfortunately, had a couple of bladder infections.  She has been on antibiotics to treat the infections and will need to be monitored every three months throughout her life.

She has a tremendous personality and lives up to her name. Seele (zee-luh) is a German word meaning Soul.  She is smart, ingenious, independent, strong, loving, and gorgeous.  The older she gets, the more affectionate she has grown.  She knows what she wants, whether it’s food or her stairs in front of the door so she can access the window, or scratches behind her ear - Her eyes speak volumes.  She is a wonderful little being!

 At Laramie Animal Welfare Society, the first step to adoption is completing an adoption application on our website Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our adoption team which typically takes up to 7 days.  Keep in mind, the kitten/cat you’re interested in when applying may be adopted and no longer available by the time your application is approved. We do not place animals on hold.   Pending approval, your application is valid for 6 months. Also pending approval, you will receive contact information, so that you may inquire about the personalities of specific animals.   Due to COVID-19, we are highly encouraging foster homes and adopters to speak with one another via phone or video chat to limit in-person contact. If meeting in person at a foster home or at our adoption center, everyone is encouraged to wear masks and socially distance.   Adoptions for individual animals will occur by private adoption appointment. Because we are 100 % foster-based, appointments are scheduled pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules.  Should you want to proceed with the adoption, a brief appointment will occur at our adoption center to sign adoption paperwork, receive medical records, and pay the adoption fee.   

**Dog/Puppy applications -  Because of the large volume of dog/puppy applications we are receiving these applications may take longer to process, please be patient. We do not do first come first serve but we place the dog/puppy in the best suited home. If you have questions about the Dog/Puppy process please email**
