Little Miss Cattitude!
Female Domestic Short Hair Cat
- Rescue group:
- Cat Adoption Foundation Incorporated
- PetRescue ID:
- Adelaide, SA
Stella is a gorgeous street kitty with lots of confidence and attitude! She’s is an independent woman and not in the least bit shy. She’ll walk up to anyone and demand attention and affection. And if you take her home, she’ll almost certainly demand to sleep on your bed!
But all this cattitude can be excused when you consider that Stella entered a local shelter heavily pregnant and all of her babies were stillborn. She took the loss hard and fell into a depression which lowered her immune system and she contracted cat flu. After such a rough start, Stella was taken into specialist foster care and received intensive treatment for her flu symptoms.
Today, Stella is clean, soft and mostly symptom free. But she’s still very independent and, as the saying goes, you can take Stella off the street, but you can’t take the street out of the Stella! Her time on the streets taught her to smack first and never ask questions, so she would be best suited as the only cat in the house, as she’ll totally dominate.
As an only kitty, Stella will make a great companion as she loves pats. She’ll get a bit bitey when she’s had enough. But don’t worry, it won’t hurt, she only has a few teeth left in her gummy mouth! She also has a playful side and will make you cry with laughter when she spots her own tail and chases it in circles!
Stella is fully vetted and will need to be an inside-only cat. Cold weather sometimes brings out a weepy eye, so she likes to stay very warm in front of the heater. She has daily liquid medicine to help keep her mouth healthy, which she takes without any fuss. Cat Adoption Foundation is happy to continue supplying this medication and to provide further vet care for Stella, if needed.
Given she was found on the streets, her age is difficult to determine. Various vets have estimated she may be around six years old.
If you can give this older Miss the second chance she deserves, please get in touch.
