Peep had hard time learning to walk and eat. She used to pull herself forward and crawl and had to initially eat only soft food. To make sure she strengthened her muscles her foster mom never crated her, encouraging her to roam around and explore her surroundings. She even exercised by walking down a long hallway. Peep learns to adapt to her condition more and more. Each day she gets a little stronger.
Now Peep gets around just fine. She falls a lot but is able to walk even on hardwood floors. She loves chasing the laser dot but needs a carpeted area to do so. She is fearless! Peep is also able to climb to a lower level of the cat tree, and doesn't let the fact that she can't get down on her own stop her! She is fearless and determined to climb like any other cat. Peep is very sweet and loving. She is even friendly with other cats.
She generally uses low litter box with a doggie pad in front since it is easier for her. She tends to fall in the litterbox and from time to time needs some help getting cleaned up. She’s gotten much better about this, and now only needs a bath about once a month. She takes baths in a bathroom sink and enjoys it.
She is on a grain free diet, and she loves Spot’s Stew by Halo. She eats wet food and dry food all by herself.
Peep is a very ambitious kitty. Despite all the difficulties she is doing really well. She never lets her condition hold her back. She is looking for a permanent home with someone who has patience and will understand her needs. She would like someone who does not mind giving her a bath from time to time, and can help her down from the cat tree. Peep loves to snuggle, and will need lots of belly rubs. She also is into fashion like many young ladies and likes to be wrapped in pretty fabric or play with shiny objects:)
Peep deserves a happy fulfilling life despite her condition. Please consider giving this very special kitty a forever home!
