Lacie's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Lacie's Story...
Meet beautiful Lacie! She is a very special feline - she has a disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH). CH is a non-progressive neurological disorder - meaning it will never get worse but never get better. It does appear to improve as kittens grow into adults because they learn to adapt and compensate, and they also get stronger as they get older. CH is most commonly caused by the mother being exposed to a virus called panleukopenia while pregnant, and the result is that the part of the brain that controls motor skills is under-developed. CH is also known as Wobbly Kitten Syndrom because of the wobbly "drunken sailor" strut these kittens have. To learn more about CH, go to http://chcat.org/about-ch-cats/.

Lacie loves to be held and is very, very sweet! She is also playful - loves jingle balls and anything that dangles in front of her! We want Lacie and Cream Puff to be adopted together as the level of CH is very similar and they are very close. They are special cats who will need to go to a special home: the adoptive home must be carpeted because it will be easier for them to walk around. The main living area should be on one level, as neither Lacie or Cream Puff will be able to go up or down stairs safely. Both Lacie and Cream Puff use the litter box, and eat and drink from bowls. Lacie has been vet checked, spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed, and tested negative for FIV/Feluk. Call 507-451-4512 to meet Lacie in her foster home. Her adoption fee is $100. (C&AL)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lacie, a Owatonna Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Owatonna, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Owatonna.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Owatonna already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Owatonna breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Owatonna paves the way for another one to be saved.
