Do we expect the cat to hide in a new home?



My name is Lettuce. I am an independent but affectionate lady; I love to play with my toys and bird-watch. I also come looking to be pet throughout the day. I am also happy with any cat food. I prefer to be the only pet in the home and not share my people's love and attention. Special Needs: Lettuce came into care with chronic sneezing and runny nose discharge. She had been on multiple antibiotic regimes with minimal improvement, so she was sedated and examined for a nasal polyp but none, nor any foreign objects were found. Lettuce's nasal discharge was cultured and was positive for MRSA (an antibiotic resistant virus) and has been treated. MRSA is difficult to get rid of, but very rarely transmits from pets to people. For caution she should not be around people or pets with weakened immune When she gets a runny nose, it is recommended to wipe it away with a clean tissue and wash hands after. Currently in her foster home her nose is cleaned 4 times over the course of a day, so quite manageable.


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 deworming, 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, dewormings 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.

As our goal is to find the best match based on the cat(s) needs, only those chosen for a meet-and-greet will be contacted via email.
