Hi everyone, my rescue name is Buffy Sainte-Marie, but I should have been called Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I'm a sweet, gentle and loving cat, who loves to spend time in your presence and have you close. When you are there, I will purr and purr and lounge near your feet. When I get bored or you leave me alone for too long, I will change from a sweet, relaxed cat to one who will seek out and eat inappropriate things like wires, elastics and thread! This has gotten me into trouble requiring surgery on two occasions. I am on a special diet, also have some catnip sticks, a puzzle food toy and cardboard box to shred. With these in hand, close companionship, and bird or squirrel videos on YouTube when my foster parents are out at work, and my special diet, my desire for wires, elastics and thread has been managed.


Home Environment Needed: Who are you? You are someone who is home most of the time, is willing to give me the attention or stimulation via the tools above (or similar), and can hide tempting cords, elastics or thread from my keen eyes. Maybe you are a minimalist. Maybe you hate electronics. Any which way, I know I'm the one for you and can be more Dr. Jekyll than Mr. Hyde 😉


Special Needs: Because of Buffy's tendency to eat inappropriate things, she is now considered to have a condition known as Pica. Pica can be a food allergy or an intestinal inflammatory condition managed by higher fiber gastrointestinal diets. She is currently doing well on a Veterinary prescribed gastrointestinal diet and a probiotic supplement ( Fortiflora). Buffy prefers the dry food version only. We recommend that she continue on this diet to avoid recurrence of Pica. This food is only available from your Veterinary clinic. The special needs adoption fee reflects recognition that veterinary prescribed food does cost more than commercial food.


ADOPTION FEE: The Special Needs adoption fee is $165.00 (which includes a health check, first vaccination in a series and any that become due while in care, first anti-parasite treatments needed in care, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). There is a 10% discount when you adopt 2 cats/kittens. The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters, anti-parasite treatments that are needed after adoption. Kittens usually need 3 vaccines, one month apart starting at age 7 weeks. Juveniles and Adult cats usually require 2 vaccines one month apart. Deworming is recommended at the time of each vaccine appointment. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that your Veterinary clinic may be experiencing backlogs in scheduling appointments, so do not delay calling your clinic to book your new cat's needed booster appointment(s). Please note that cats are not tested for FIV/FeLV nor can FIP be predicted. We will share any medical information gathered during our health checks and observations revealed during their time in care. But it is important to know that some illnesses can have an incubation period of 10 days, which means that a cat can leave in good health but get sick a few days post adoption. In addition, the stress of a new environment can affect a cats’ immune system.
