Featured Adoption

Harriet

Cat

Female 8 years approx. Spayed Vaccinated

Meet Harriet! This beautiful girl is approximately 8 years old and came into our care when she required some special vet procedures. Harriet’s amazing vet has gotten her into pretty good shape but she will still live with two treatable conditions that her adopter will need to commit to managing. One is arthritis that is managed with medication. The other is a digestive issue that is managed with food and medication. Her adopter should know that these conditions mean that periodically she may need to visit the vet for a special procedure that helps her colon. This is not particularly costly and is quite safe and non-invasive.
