Hello! My name is Echidna. I am technically an adult, but I still like to play like a kitten! I enjoying zooming through the house, playing with my wand toy and chasing after light beams on the wall. Believe it or not, I love belly rubs, although sometimes they turn into play time. I do like to play with my teeth, but not with my claws. I love being in the same room as the people in my house, but I don't want to sit on your lap. I like a lot of attention, so it might be good to have someone to play with in my new home. I'm currently the only pet in the house, but I played a lot with my kittens when they were here. Foster Notes: Echidna arrived at our house with her 5 eight-week old kittens. She was an excellent mother, but she has also adapted well to being on her own. We think she is a little under 2 years old, so she still has lots of kitten energy. She would probably benefit from having another cat in the house or a friendly dog, unless you have lots of time to play with her. If she hasn't had enough exercise during the day, she will want to play in the middle of the night. We had to play around a bit with her food. We discovered she doesn't like plain fowl pate (chicken or turkey), but if it is mixed with any kind of seafood, she will gobble it down. She will choose to starve over eating food she doesn't like, so some experimentation might be needed at the beginning. She uses the litter box well, and we haven't seen any other issues. She does use her teeth quite a bit when she is playing. She has never broken skin, and we try to redirect her to other toys, but she may not be a good choice for a house with small children. We have never heard her hiss (except at the vet), and she seems to almost never use her claws, except to scratch at the scratching post. Echidna had her spay surgery on May 16, so if adopted before May 30, a cone or onesie will be required to be worn to make sure she doesn't lick or scratch at her incision.

 

ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee is $225.00 (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 in the first year, then annual vaccines. 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.
