Cat of the Week: Callie

Callie

Callie the calico is a sweet and easy-going special needs kitty.  She is about 7 years old. It’s hard not to fall in love with her. She purrs continuously, she likes to be near you, and loves being petted. Callie has a disability that she was born with. She has hip dysplasia, deformed kneecaps, and is bow legged so her back legs don’t hold her up very well. Despite her limitations, Callie gets around just fine and isn’t in any pain.  It’s easier for her to get around on carpet as wood or tile is slippery and harder for her to get traction. But she can scoot around on slick floors when necessary.  She cannot jump, so she would love it if you lift her up to the couch so she can hang out with you, and help her get down afterward.

Callie 2Callie loves cat toys, and gets along with mellow cats and dogs that won’t chase or bother her.  She needs a tender, loving owner that has time to give her attention. She uses a litterbox just fine, and likes having a kennel she can go in and out of as she pleases. She likes her kennel in her foster home, and retreats to it when she wants some quiet time.

Callie has so much love to give and really wants to be someone’s loving companion cat! Callie is spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on her vaccinations, and front declawed. Please contact adoptions@lasthoperescueia.org for more information about her. An adoption application can be completed HERE.
