Who Am I?
I’m a pretty young cat who epitomizes the term “second chance” after I was rescued as a tiny kitten suffering from a common fungus (ringworm) that caused nearly half my fur to fall out. I was discovered mewing loudly, taped up in a box with air holes and placed by an apartment building entrance.
Thankfully my rescuers and foster parents could see my inner beauty and SCAA provided an opportunity for the outside to eventually catch up!
Why I Make a Great Pet!
My endearing “…ing” habits: hugging, greeting, talking, playing…
I love people, in spite or because of the non-stop handling I was subjected to as a mangy kitten is hard to tell. Most kittens aren’t as forgiving as I am about being bathed regularly, yet I was nothing if a model patient when faced with daily anti-fungal shampoo followed by a thorough rinsing and then the blow dryer. Weeks and weeks of care paid off as I’m now a beautiful and silky soft cat you’ll enjoy cuddling with. That said, I’m definitely done with baths.
Confidence is my middle name. I eagerly greet my foster mom and all her guests at the door and will accept head rubs from the first animal lover to put their hand forward. Once people pet me they usually don’t want to stop. I enjoy having cat conversations and chasing the laser pen round and round in crazy circles. When I’m not actively exploring the house to supervise the goings on, I’m cuddling with my foster mom who proudly claims that I hug like a human, wrapping my paws around her neck. Bedtime is our time and there must be a space for me on the bed. I appreciate access to your chest and neck for some kneading and purring…so it’s best to wear comfy sleepwear and to keep my claws nicely trimmed.
My Excellent Health
Like all SCAA foster animals, I’ve received the best medical care possible from SCAA’s vet partner, PAW. It’s been a long (and slightly expensive!) road to recovery from common ringworm. But now that my fur is all grown in, I’m the picture of health. I’ve been treated for fleas and mites (Revolution), worms (Milbemax), ringworm (Malaseb shampoo and Itraconezole & Ketoconazole anti-fungal meds), am vaccinated (Tri-Cat and rabies vax) and spayed.
My Ideal Home
I’m good with little foster kitten friends, males especially, but would be an ideal single cat for any home who can give me the love and attention I demand. I’m playful but gentle enough to be great match for older kids.
