Tina’s Cat: The Sequel

In the aftermath of the death of Tina Wessel — the homeless woman known to many Westporters, who died last month — “06880” readers have wondered about the fate of her beloved cat.

Julie Loparo — president of Westport Animal Shelter Advocates — reports:

Tina’s cat — now named Elsie — is a delight. She is approximately 4 years old, healthy…just wonderful.

Elsie

Elsie

She is temporarily being boarded at Schulhof Animal Hospital, receiving excellent care and attention from staff and WASA volunteers. Now, WASA is searching for a local forever home for Elsie. She will need to be kept indoors for her safety.

Potential adopters should email wasa1@optonline.net, or call 203-557-0361.

Tina’s funeral will be held today (2 p.m., Friday, December 9), at Christ & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Westport.

  1. SHE’S ADORABLE- WISH I WASN’T ALLERGIC TO FELINES. HOPE SOMEONE ADOPTS HER SOON

  2. Thank you, Dan. Do you think Elsie would like living in Colorado?! May she be well-loved and cared for as evidenced by Tina’s love and care.

    Dan,

    I’d be pleased to gift Elsie’s new cat person with a brand new carrier, which I will also deliver to Schuloff’s upon request.

    Happy Holidays!

    • Gloria, you’re the best! Please contact Schulhof’s directly. Happy holidays to you too!

        Thank you for the information, Dan. Will do.
        My cat Ravn and I are regulars at Shuloff’s and just like you, Schuloff’s is the best. And no, that’s not a typo in her name –Ravn is the Danish spelling.
        Best,
