Oatmeal is full of surprises! At first glance, she doesn't look like a long-haired cat. But when you run your hands through her fur you'll realize it's so thick and fluffy that it's hard to find her underneath all that floof! She's a young cat, but chatters away in a raspy little old lady voice. She has so much to say that you'd think she's been saving up years of stories to tell!
Oatmeal only recently went into a foster home, and it's her first experience in a home. She gets confused by some household things like ceiling fans and will meow at them, which is both silly and adorable. This trait alone could make her a kitten video star!
Oatmeal is receiving treatment for an undiagnosed illness that causes neurological and vision issues; her treatment is still in progress, and it is unknown at this point how the illness will progress or resolve. She needs a home with people who will love her no matter what; through sickness and in health, so to speak. A home with unconditional love and support and without small children is best.
Because Oatmeal cannot see very well, she is easily startled by sudden movement, sound, and so on. She would do best in a low-traffic home with people who will approach her slowly, and are always aware of and careful about her lack of vision. She is also sometimes wobbly on her feet, which seems to be getting a bit better.
Despite all that, Oatmeal thrives on love and snuggles! She loves kisses and cuddles and being near her people as often as possible. She hasn't been super playful yet, but she has energy; she just doesn't exhibit the typical kitten-craziness. She hasn't met other cats besides her sisters, but she has seen her foster's dog through an open doorway, and did not seem to be afraid of him.
