Facts about Baby

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Baby's previous owner was an elderly gentleman. He had an emergency and had to be taken to the hospital. He stayed at the hospital more than a month and then had to go into a nursing home. No one knew Baby existed. The man's family donated the contents of his home to a sister canine rescue to be sold off. When that rescue showed up and found Baby after six weeks alone in that house living off toilet water and rodents, she was in very bad shape. They immediately took Baby to a local vet to get care. Since they were a canine rescue, they contacted Purrs & Wags and we took in Baby. When she came to us she weighed only 4 pounds and most of her fur had fallen out from lack of nutrition. We worked diligently with Baby and she has blossomed into a gorgeous tabby girl with a current weight of 10 pounds. She is still a bit frightened of people. Her time alone in that home was traumatic for her. So she will need someone who is patient and loving, and willing to work to establish trust with her. She has come such a long way. She deserves a wonderful loving home.

Baby is up to date on her vaccines, Fiv/FeLv negative, and our vet found a spay scar. I would not recommend a home with small children or large dogs. She is stand offish with other cats but tends to hide instead of being an aggressor.

Special Need: Experienced Adoptor needed due to traumatic history

About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or injured. When they are ready we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
