Today's Featured Felines:
Dilute Tortie Mardi was the only survivor of an abandoned litter. A devoted volunteer found and raised her from the time she was just a few days old. Miraculously, she not only survived, she thrived. But as she grew, it became obvious that something was wrong with her hind legs. She limped, bit herself, and howled in pain! The vet determined that she had severe medial luxating patellas. Her condition was congenital and caused both kneecaps to continually pop out of position. Mardi underwent two surgeries on one knee, and one surgery on the other. She has spent months in foster care healing. Her knees are fixed now and should only need a yearly checkup. In a few weeks Mardi will be ready to find a forever home of her own. It would be ideal for her to go right from her foster home into her permanent home to avoid shelter life. Mardi is very energetic, clever, and LOVES to play. She is almost a year old but doesn't look it because she is a small boned and petite kitty. Once she gets to know them, Mardi is extremely interactive with people, purring and twittering with affection. She would warm up fast to a family with older kids and non-threatening, mannerly cat housemates, or make a totally devoted one-on-one feline companion. If you're looking for a very smart, interactive, and personality-plus kitty, Mardi Gras is the one!
Such a striking tortie and white older adult girl who didn’t deserve to be left behind by her previous people. How confused she must have been to be abandoned and no longer valued! Sweet Rose is shy and reserved and prefers to stay out of the shelter’s active areas. But if she sees the laser light in play, she will make sure she gets in on the chase, too! This diminutive beauty just wants to belong to a person again. As a mature adult, she is well mannered and a true lady. She does need routine care for a mild nasal condition that is probably made worse by the shelter environment. In a secure, loving home life, her condition could even subside. Come see Rose soon and let her steal your heart!
