Black & White, Blue-Eyed Female
7 years old
Missy is the oldest of the Rescue cats we got from the San Jose Shelter in July. We think she is around 7. She has had a tough time. When we got her, she hadn't been eating and was very sick, and down around 4 lbs. She was force fed until she started eating again, and she has gained weight--she is almost 8 lbs now. Then Missy developed a fast growing lump on the inside of her hind leg. Fortunately it turned out the lump was an encapsulated abscess and not something more serious. After surgery and a couple weeks of antibiotics, she is doing fine.
Missy is very sweet, loves to sit on your lap and cuddle. She was very shy the first few days here, but she got over that pretty quickly and is very friendly. Missy tolerates the other cats, but they tend to pick on her. She could be an only cat, or could live with another cat if it was the right match.
She has a "love bite" problem--when she gets very happy, she tends to love bite, and she doesn't control the pressure very well, so they tend to hurt! We have been working with her on that, and she is getting better, but because of this she shouldn't be around younger children. Pre-teens and Teens that can understand how to apply behavior modification to help her get over this would be OK. She has never broken the skin, and she doesn't bite in anger or fear--just in cases where she is getting petted and gets a little too happy.
Missy needs and deserves a permanent home where she can be loved and cared for. If you are interested in adopting Missy please contact email@example.com
