Meet Vera. Just 4 years old, this sweet gal had a rough life in rural Missouri before coming to Tenth Life. During those few years, she was hit by a car, shot with BBs, and lost all of her teeth (her tooth loss was due to stomatitis, which is no longer a problem, and she eats with no problem—wet AND dry food!). Despite all this adversity, Vera has remained trusting and friendly with people. She loves to cuddle up with her foster mom for a nap or to have her head and ears scratched. She gives head bonks and plenty of nose kisses. When she first came into foster care, Vera had no interest in playing with toys. We assume that she either had no toys before or that she was too busy trying to survive out there. But now she LOVES to chase and jump after her feather wand or her fishing pole toys. And best of all, Vera plays independently! She has favorite mice that she likes to hide in special spots and then go “catch” them on her own. She’s a fun and easygoing girl who is enjoying the good life now that she’s been rescued.
Vera has inflammatory bowel disease, but her condition is under good control with a very low dose of prednisone. She is currently eating a prescription diet, but it is possible that another diet will be fine, as long as she is fed a good-quality food that is approved by your veterinarian.
This sweet girl wants nothing more than to move into a forever home where she can feel safe and loved. But she's not big on sharing your love with other kitties, so she'd prefer to rule the roost as an only cat.
