Today's Featured Felines:
Beautiful Arista is a full-grown young adult girl in a very petite body of strikingly patterned fur. There is no doubt she has genetic links to one of the pointed cat breeds like the Siamese, Ragdoll, Birman, or even the Himalayan. But Arista's sweet disposition and calm personality are even more attractive than the pretty coat she wears! She gets along with other cats, is people friendly, and can be quite playful with toys. She should be irresistible to everyone!
Unfortunately, finding a new home can be difficult for cats having any medical condition or some physical deformity. The majority of potential adopters just want a cute and healthy cat with no immediate or additional care needs. Cats that don't match up to this are very often just left behind. Arista was born with a congenital deformity of the eyelids, and one eye is also slightly smaller than the other. The vet says that her eyesight has not been compromised. She just looks a little odd. She may have an issue with runny eyes or mild irritations from time to time, but her condition is quite manageable for anyone who can give Arista veterinary care when she needs it.
There can be homes for every cat because of those few, special people who are more than happy to offer a loving, supportive home to cats like Arista that happen to be a little different. If you're one of those special adopters, come visit Arista and see for yourself what a wonderful cat companion she's waiting to be!
Poppy came into rescue as a momma cat much too long ago. All her babies found homes, as most adorable kittens do, but Poppy was left behind. People don’t take the time to see how beautiful she is in both spirit and countenance. Poppy's gorgeous round face with soulful green eyes speaks to her gentle nature and ability to be a loving companion. She is a laid back girl who avoids the limelight and commotion in daily shelter life. Poppy can often be found napping in an out of the way place. She can be quite reserved, but if she trusts a person, she shows it with affection.
Poppy loves to play with the laser lights and interactive wand toys. She gets along with other like-minded cats and would prefer a quieter home with no rambunctious children. Within the past year she developed the painful oral condition, stomatitis. Her teeth were surgically removed to resolve the severe inflammation. Surprisingly, cats with no teeth can eat anything they want! One toothless Kitty City alum is a feline vacuum, sucking up everything edible! Another toothless alum refuses to eat anything except small-sized hard kibble. Both are thriving. And Poppy will do fine with no special diet other than the one she prefers.
Poppy is a wonderful lady who doesn't deserve to be overlooked. If you're that special person looking for a beautiful, sweet-natured adult feline friend, come visit Poppy soon!
