Meet Kat - Spirit Cat - Special Medical Needs

Domestic Shorthair
Location: Springfield
Gender: Female
Age: 7 year
Hi, I'm Kat the cat and I came to Dakin when my guardian moved to a new residence that didn't allow pets. We'd been together since I was Kat the kitten so this abrupt change really rocked my world. I've started to make friends with the staff at Dakin but am proceeding cautiously, hoping to find myself in a comfortable, quiet home again before long. Once settled in my surroundings, I'm likely to become my old self again--a friendly, playful, independent lady. I like all sorts of toys, especially pom-poms and paper. I'm also an excellent bug chaser which sure is handy at this time of year! I love if when someone pets the side of my face and neck but be forewarned--the belly is off limits. I'm accustomed to living indoors with an adult and don't have any experience with other pets. My previous guardian said I have a history of hissing at dogs, so please keep that in mind. There's something else you should know about me that makes me extra special. During my spay surgery, the surgical team discovered that I have unique anatomy (isn't that exciting?!). Specifically, I have only one kidney instead of two and I've learned that cats like me can live well with this condition as long as the single kidney functions normally. Mine is working just fine now and a veterinarian can monitor my kidney function with regular bloodwork. If you're intrigued by the idea of a cat who is special in many ways, inside and out, contact the adoption staff to learn more about me.
