spunky and adorable!

Shortcake came to the shelter as a tiny kitten in the hands of a good Samaritan. The lady found what she thought was a squirrel in the road and when she went to save it, there was a kitten - Shortcake. She had a horriffic eye infection as a result of an upper respiratory infection or trauma. Vets and PAWS volunteers tried to give her medication so she could gain as much of her sight back as possible, but it was too late. We believe she had a very small amount of vision, but steadily declined, and she had to have both of her eyes removed (on April 19th, 2011). Even without her eyes, Shortcake has her beauty and her great temperament.  Shortcake was raised in a foster home. At first she wouldn't go much farther than her bed, but her confidence grew and she began to explore, and move around like a cat. Shortcake "sees" with her nose, whiskers, and ears. She has always been spunky, playful, and very inquisitive. She is very smart, uses the litter box perfectly, and she can find her way around a home after some time to practice. Shortcake can do everything that a cat can -- except see. Her favorite thing in the world is to sit in your lap, and her second favorite is catnip! She love to be petted so much that she'll drool with adoration. Picking her up and loving on her is not a problem, she has been taught some basic words so she knows what to expect and doesn't become frightened.

As with all PAWS cats, she is spayed, up to date on her core vaccinations, and tested FELV/FIV negative. She is also on flea prevention and parasite prevention. 

Shortcake is being fostered in the Bertie County area.
