Persian - Katrina The Darling Deaf Girl - Medium - Adult
KATRINA Born @ August 2008 An elderly couple had been caring for a long-haired gray Persian mix cat (Christina) who had kittens in the summer of 2008. The man became an invalid due to a stroke and they felt unable to care for these cats. None had received any veterinary care and the mother was badly matted. The cats were somewhat scared at the shelter and probably had not been given much, if any, individual attention. They all improved greatly once they came into the shelter, and as of September of 2009, all but mama Christina and this beautiful girl Katrina have been adopted. They have been in St. Louis in the same foster home for many years. Katrina is available for adoption for someone who can understand and work with her deafness. She has never been around dogs. Her foster mom loves her but would let her go to a special home where she gets more individual attention. Katrina has the round face of a Persian and is a real beauty, with a fluffy solid white coat; her eyes are very blue. She also is deaf, which is very common in pure white, blue-eyed cats. No one realized she was deaf until she came into foster care -- she copes very well and pays attention to everything going on around her. She is not fond of being held or restrained in any way, but loves to be petted and stroked, and will ask (yes, she talks, even though she can't hear herself speak) for this attention. Katrina would prefer to be an only pet, although she will live with other felines. She will do best in a quiet home with adults or older children. Don't let deafness prevent you from opening your heart to Katrina -- you will be drawn into those lovely, big blue eyes and that plush fur, and the next thing you know, you won't be able to imagine a time she didn't greet you with a little meow to welcome you home. Did you fall for this furbaby but can't offer a home right now? Then consider using the "make a donation" button on this page to help pay for food, shelter, meds and other physical needs until a forever home arrives. We'll supply the love and thank you, on behalf of the animals, for any help you can give. Born about 1/15/09
