Pretty, Differently Lovable, Survivor

Calligator - Callie, for short - has shown us that determined fighters can come in the prettiest, most delicate packages. This calico beauty is diabetic and lapsed into a diabetic coma. Thanks to modern medicine and her drive to live, she pulled out of it. She is happy to hang out with you while she does her own independent kitty stuff, and has no interest in being petted or sitting on your lap. She likes to be with you while you do your own independent human stuff, or to watch you from a window as you garden outside, feed the birds, water the plants, etc.

Callie's diabetes does require extra medical care, which may include regulated diet and does require insulin. Giving Callie her insulin shots is a breeze if you give them to her while she's eating - she's too busy chowing down to notice or care! For detailed information, please contact APA!

While Callie doesn't need to cuddle with you, she will give you the highly-coveted, affectionate slow-blink from across the room! And while few cats love it, she absolutely detests being put in a carrier to go to the vet. Also, she would do best in a home with no other pets and without children.

Though she has some residual brain damage and once-in-a-blue-moon unpredictable behavior as a result of her coma, don't think Callie should be pitied, shunned, or dismissed simply because her brain no longer works like other kitties. In fact, she's that much more in need of love and understanding. We kind of think of her as a beautiful, exotic-but-prickly houseplant.

If you're just the person to give this sweet survivor a warm, cozy place to call home, contact us to meet Callie today.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
