Well we picked up a kitty tonight to foster....She is absolutely gorgeous she is a turkish angora, solid white, with 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye, she is about 18 months old and deaf
.... the thing that makes me mad about this whole thing is this.... The couple that had her got her when she was about 6 months old, so they've only had her for a year, it took them 6 months to realize she was deaf .... while prior to them realizing she was deaf they were trying to get her attention and spooked the kitty so the kitty inturn scratched the guy leg's up, well because of that she instantly went to the vet for a declawing
so now not only is this poor kitty defenseless in that she can't hear, but now she has no way of protecting herself.
Apparantley other than the declawing due to a few scratches she was pretty spoiled and pampered, and the reason for them NOT wanting to take her back to the states when they PCS back in about 3 months is because they have been over here for 3 years and when they get back to the states they want to travel and just won't have time to take care of the cat, nor do they want to burden anybody in watching her....hmmm okay but they can go on vacations here and hire a pet sitter (per their telling us)... People like this make me so mad and don't deserve the cat in the first place. So now she is here with us, because of course we agreed to take her in, what could we do? We couldn't take the chance of the possibility of her being dumped as it is very common around here.
I believe they were calling her "lola" we are going to call her "Ellie" she is so beautiful and so sweet. Did well in the car from their house to ours. Oh and that is another excuse they gave, she doesn't like her carrier so they didn't want to deal with her being scared or skittish on the flight back to the states....ummm hello people???? UGH!!
I will post pics of her soon as she slowly settles in. She is already out and about in the hallway and bedrooms, but I doubt she will cross over the gate that leads to the foyer and the other rooms of the house as long as the dog's are awake
We are debating on putting her up for adoption, because she would have to go to a promising home that we know would love her forever and wouldn't dump her after a year because she has become a burden (As they have).
On a side note if anybody might be interested, she is 18 months old, spayed, declawed
, microchipped, and all shots are current.
Well there is our little cat adventure for this evening.
