Facts about Whitney

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Meet Whitney. Whitney is funny little girl who is about 2 years old. She has been felv/fiv tested (negative), vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped. Whitney suffered a pretty severe ear infection and her head tilt is the result of that ear infection. We were hoping that her head tilt would diminish over time, but it has not. Whitney even sat through acupuncture but without success. It does not seem to bother her. She still loves to play and play and wrestle with other cats. Her balance is a bit off so she sometimes falls off the sofa, chair or scratching post. She also doesn't like to be carried around - it puts her balance off. She sure does like to sit next to you though. Whitney is still at the learning curve with using her scratching post so she needs reminders about not using the furniture. During Whitney's severe ear infection, she had an allergic reaction to something whether in the environment or food and as a result her skin broke out in a rash-type response. Whitney currently is eating a chicken free food in hopes that we can get her allergies under control. Whitney is also currently on steroids for her allergies. We are hopeful that her allergies can be controlled by a food change but there is a chance that she may also need to be on medications long term. We will know more hopefully by September.

About Cause for Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Cause for Paws is a Minnesota nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization founded in 1998. It is a small all-volunteer group of friends who love cats and want to make a difference for cats in our community. The small group's main focus is helping stray and abandoned cats and kittens find loving, permanent homes. Cats are fostered in volunteers' homes; there is no shelter facility. The goal of every Cause for Paws adoption is a home where the cat and the other family members -- both two-legged and four-legged -- will thrive. Prior to adoption, all cats are examined by a veterinarian,
Felv/fiv tested, vaccinated (including rabies and distemper),
spayed or neutered, microchipped and registered, fostered in a volunteer foster home to determine the kitty’s personality, and received treatment for flea/parasite prevention. As funds allow, Cause for Paws also provides spay/neuter assistance for owned cats in the community, through its Cause for Paws Spay/Neuter Subsidy Program. The work of Cause for Paws is funded entirely by donations.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Cause for Paws hosts adoption events at the Petcos in Highland and Roseville. We also have cats available for viewing at the Petco store in Roseville in their in-house adoption kennels. If someone is interested in seeing one of our cats, arrangements can be made to meet this cat at a time other than our scheduled adoption events. Our adoption events are typically held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please see our website for specific dates and locations.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for a Cause for Paws cat is $130. There is an adoption application that is completed and reviewed prior to the adoption. This application will ask for a veterinarian reference and we will check this reference prior to an adoption. The application gives us an opportunity to learn more about the potential adopter and whether or not the cat that they are interested in would be a good match. There is also an adoption contract that is completed at the time of the adoption. Because we are an all-volunteer organization, we typically will respond to an inquiry within 24 to 48 hours.
