Earlier this month, we had a very exciting day for our cat program! In just one day, five cats that need you most were adopted! Cats that need you most are a specific category of loving kitties that simply require a little extra care or attention. It includes cats with FeLV, incontinent cats, diabetic cats, super seniors, catzillas, and a few others with needs that make them all the more special!
We firmly believe these cats are no less deserving of a loving forever home than their counterparts and that the right people are out there for them; and as part of our lifesaving process, our cat team will be there every step of the way to teach you how to help them fit purrfectly into your family! We are going to share a little bit about these five cats that are now spending their days surrounded by love in their new homes.
Cesar is a 12 year old snuggle bug who has no teeth and recently underwent entropion (a medical condition concerning the eyelids) and mass removal surgery. You'd never know he was struggling from his sweet disposition, though. We will miss his hugs but are so happy he's now relaxing, and will spend the rest of his years, in his forever home!
Galangal is a tiny two month old kitten who came to us blind due to missing globes (eyes). His furever family fell in love with him immediately and cannot wait to take him home. The fact that they will have to comfort him through further surgeries did not scare them off but instead fueled their passion to give him the best life possible. We’re so grateful they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make sure Galangal lives the best life possible!
Lilith wins of the hearts of anyone she meets. This senior lady has diabetes and a bum eye, but you would never guess it by the way she acts! She loves snuggling, purring, and trotting around the cattery, and never lets her age or her quirks bring her down. We knew it was only a matter of time before someone fell in love with her and brought her home!
On this special day we had not just one, but two diabetic and blind kitties adopted. When Layla first came to us, her foster thought she was taking in a hospice kitty. Fast forward to months later, this beautiful girl is chunky, playful, and so very happy. She doesn't let her lack of sight or diabetes slow her down. She's happy to take her biscuit making skills on the road to her new forever home. Lilith and Layla are now living their best lives, chances they may not have gotten elsewhere.
Little kittens are always happier when they have a buddy. Bowie’s furever family came looking for a friend for their incontinent APA! alum, Orddu. One look into Bowie's big, beautiful eyes and they were hooked. He sealed the deal when he happily played and snuggled with them. Bowie is fecally incontinent, so while he tries to make it to the litter box every time, it doesn't always happen for him. His forever family loves him just the same, and now him and Orddu will have a lifetime of wrestling and snuggling together. We foresee a lot of playing in the future of this friendship!
We are so thankful that these five cats’ adopters saw past their quirks and understood that they needed them in that moment. Each cat that comes into our care as a cat that needs you most is so special, and their new families truly love that about them. In many other shelters, they wouldn’t have had a chance at life. APA! was able to give them this chance, and provided five families with a special love only these cats could bring.
