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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
