NEW - 30 Days Pet Insurance With Each
mazing Grace - Crippled but full of love!
This is Amazing, and she truly is. If you fancy yourself as a special-needs cat adopter or caregiver, you need to seriously look into this cat and her story.
Amazing is about two and is spayed and UTD on everything. She is presently living at the vet’s office that helped save her. Dr Staderman and her wonderful staff have given Amazing a real chance at life and truly adore her, and are taking excellent care of her. But she needs her own furever home and it can be with other cats too!
In June 2014, two gentlemen who worked next door at the car dealership brought her in. They were moving cars and saw her lying in a ditch. Not exactly sure what happened, but most likely she was run over. Dr. Staderman said there was a chance she would regain use of her back hind legs. After a couple months of cage rest, her back left leg was completely amputated. She has some use of her back right leg, and her front legs are incredibly strong.
She has no control of her bowels or bladder, and requires a diaper when shes out and about. We need someone who is comfortable with the idea of “expressing” her bladder. This is when pressure is applied to cause her to urinate, when full. We will show you how to do it.
Amazing loves to play and does not let her disabilities get in her way. All around she is a loving, sweet, affectionate cat. She would do well in a home with someone who is retired or stays at home the majority of the time but she can be crated with no diaper when left alone. She aslo has a cart but because of the limited room in the hospital, she hasn’t become acclimated to it yet.
Please watch her video on our site. She pulls herself around and her back lack drags behind her. If you have a pulse and a heart, you can’t help to be truly moved and inspired to watch her try to have a good life as a cat. But she can’t do it without you. Please contact us, not the vet, to do initial inquiries about her. You won’t be sorry you did!
Today I went over to do our standard kitty intake with two senior citizens who will be moving soon and won't have the space any more for these absolutely delightful and joyful four kitties. I was immediately struck by the vibrancy and outward gestures of affection and playfulness toward a total stranger.
While we would prefer the kitties stay with their peeps who they have been with all their lives, we support their efforts to find good loving homes for these wonderful girls. Therefore, we are looking for an absolute miracle - a home for all four. We have placed three in the same home in the past but not four. That being said, we are going to take it case by case, kitty by kitty, prospective adopter by adopter and will be willing to separate as long as each kitty has kitty companion adopted as pairs or single if necessary into a kitty household. They are great with dogs.
We are developing bios for each cat and will be posting videos and more pix after Feb 17. For now, the information is as follows: they are all declawed, all paws. They are seniors, all domestic short hair. They are strictly indoor cats and have been on dry food but we have asked the owners to change diets to wet food exclusively. They all are accustomed to being with other cats and there are of course dynamics of behavior relative to co-mingling habitation. For example, they all eat in a row together, their litter boxes area all lined up and each has their own favoriet, they freguently mutual groom each other and all nap and sleep together quite often. Some of these will shift and change, some will probably stop and new ones will develop vis a vi the new homes they are placed in. Their personalities and behaviors do change over time as with people, cats are not static. So we will work with the new adopters on transitional support to address things such as enrichment, stress reduction tactics (ie calming collars and Feliway Spray) as well as overall well-being of the kitties post-adoption.
CALLI - Calli is one of four absolutely precious sisters who are all 13 and all four paw declawed. She loves naps in high spots, is very social and a bit bossy but never agressively so. She has catitude. Of the four, she is probably the leader and the most assertive. She is very easy going and friendly to people and cats as well as dogs and just loves everyone. She adores having her whole face rubbed and is a great poser being an ornament cat at times. She sees herself as quite beautiful and inspiring of admiration by all!
JINGLES - Jingles is probably the most mischevious of the Quartet De La Clawless, one of four fabulous wonderful 13 year old kitties. She is all four decalawed, loves toys especially chasing balls around the house. She enjoys watching people and things and loves to lay in wait to pounce on you or her sisters. She is the most energetic of the sisters and loves to be rubbed, especially her belly. Her and Apricot are playmates quite often. She is a polydactal (extra toes)
JETE - She was named after a ballet dance move. Of the four 13 year old sisters, she is the most talkative, outward and social. She is also a huge love sponge and can be thought of as a lap cat. She will do her kneading (breadmaking) on your back and shoulders, making a great massage kitty. She loves being held like a baby and being brushed, as well as bellyrubs.
APRICOT is a kitty who adores being petted and brushed. She is the calmest of the four 13 year old declawed sisters. She enjoys belly rubs. She is a great eater and gives great headbutts. She is independant at times and enjoys quiet solo naps. She likes being held like a baby and is a total lovesponge. Her knickname is Apricat.
