Facts about AMAZING -Hit by car

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
This is Amazing, and she truly is. If you fancy yourself as a special-needs cat adopter or caregiver, you need to seriously look into this cat and her story.

Amazing is about two and is spayed and UTD on everything. She is presently living at the vet’s office that helped save her. Dr Staderman and her wonderful staff have given Amazing a real chance at life and truly adore her, and are taking excellent care of her. But she needs her own furever home and it can be with other cats too!

In June 2014, two gentlemen who worked next door at the car dealership brought her in. They were moving cars and saw her lying in a ditch. Not exactly sure what happened, but most likely she was run over. Dr. Staderman said there was a chance she would regain use of her back hind legs. After a couple months of cage rest, her back left leg was completely ampitated. She has some use of her back right leg, and her front legs are incredibly strong.

She has no control of her bowels or bladder, and requires a diaper when shes out and about. We need someone who is comfortable with the idea of “expressing” her bladder. This is when pressure is applied to cause her to urinate, when full. We will show you how to do it.

Amazing loves to play and does not let her disabilities get in her way. All around she is a loving, sweet, affectionate cat. She would do well in a home with someone who is retired or stays at home the majority of the time but she can be crated with no diaper when left alone. She aslo has a cart but because of the limited room in the hospital, she hasn’t become acclimated to it yet.

Please watch her video on our site. She pulls herself around and her back lack drags behind her. If you have a pulse and a heart, you can’t help to be truly moved and inspired to watch her try to have a good life as a cat. But she can’t do it without you. Please contact us, not the vet, to do initial inquiries about her. You won’t be sorry you did!

About Our Rescue Group...


Operating in Rochester, we foster-to-adopt special needs cats such as seniors, FIV+, blind, deaf or crippled, or un-weaned kittens. We foster until a forever home is found. We help cat's with special circumstances such as risk of sudden displacement. We also will rehab sick or injured cats to make them adopt-ready. All cats are spay/neutered, fully vetted and micro-chipped.

n the spirit of community responsibility to all pets, we offer very low cost microchipping to any pet. We ask 25.00 and there is a one-time registration of 10.99, for life. We will consider lowering the price depending on circumstances as well. We can insert the chip or provide it to you for your vet to insert. Additionally, we will help you transfer your chip to the Home Again/Petfinder program relieving you of any annual renewals!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show pets at various places. See our site calender page for details on where and when we show cats. We average two events per week - both weekend end days and occasionally an evening such as Friday.

Our Adoption Process...

We prefer to do same-day adoptions after completing a screen form and interview by two LiFeline members. We base our decision on a number of factors but also ask adopters to sign agreement to allow us to do vet check if vet is closed and a landlord check if applicable. We ask about steady income sources as well as ask adopter to agree to a home visit following adoption.
An adoption donation is required of at least 25.00 but more is appreciated. We will bring the cat or kitten to you for a visit and/or the adoption! Each adoption comes with 25.00 Petsaver Store voucher and Free Cat or Kitten Health Exam Certificate, as well as complimentary in-home nail clipping from our groomer and free scratch pad.
If for reasons that are things that cannot be worked out after reasonable effort if in regards to the cat we will take back and provide a different one.
