I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
My name is Angel. I was rescued from a local shelter with some very bad health problems. I had a terrible eye infection and my eyes were completely swollen shut. My mouth was covered in painful ulcers and hurt so bad I refused to eat. The doctor at the shelter said I was in renal failure. I was put in a cage, in a back room, where I was left to live out the rest of my days sleeping on old newspapers. Then one day volunteers from Henrico Humane saw me. They were so compassionate and determined I wouldn’t be left to suffer in pain and discomfort, so they took me to their vet. Everyone was concerned that I might not make it. To everyone’s surprise all my blood work came back normal, and the vet said my mouth and eyes could be treated. They had to shave my beautiful long hair because I was so matted, but it’s growing back. Thanks to my guardian “angels” I got the proper medical treatment. It was a hard road, but I am well on my way to a complete recovery. And that is how I got the name Angel.
Now I am in a wonderful foster home with a nice fluffy bed all my own with plenty of blankets. I am so affectionate. I don’t like to be picked up, but I love to sit beside you or sleep in the bed next to you. I can’t get enough attention. A lady never tells her age, and the vet wasn’t able to tell because my teeth were not in the best condition (that’s one of the things that a vet uses to determine a cat’s age), so I guess it will have to remain a mystery. What’s really important is that I am young at heart and so very playful. I run through the house looking to attack any unsuspecting toy lying around. I enjoy wand toys, balls to chase, and stuffed mice that I can wrestle and bunny kick.
I am so appreciative to have this second chance. I have a lot of love to give and can’t wait to find my forever home.
