I'm A Very Weird Kitty!

Brea was born about August 17, 2014 and weighs about 5 lbs.  She is a rather tiny cat that has, obviously, had a terrible, terrible, life until now.  It seems she has a previously broken front leg that didn't heal well and causes her pain to use it so she holds it against her body when walking.  This posture prevents her other front leg to extend the entire way so she walks rather tilted forward.  Her third eyelids cover part of her eyeballs at all times.  Meds have helped, but it seems to be chronic.  Our vet felt that something bad ended up in her eyes reducing her eyesight (bilateral dilated pupils) and causing the third eye lid to be elevated to help protect the eyeball.  Our vet felt there was nothing that could be done and she can see some.  Perhaps seeing a vet better at ophthalmology or seeing an ophthalmologist would be a good idea.  Again, we are  unsure of her health.  She is sweet and purrs when you pick her up, but she is a bit shy and may take awhile to adjust.  We do feel Brea would enjoy a home on the quiet side.  This poor, sweet, gorgeous, kitty has been so mistreated!   She came to us with hours old kittens and the person that brought her said she'd been living on their porch, in a cardboard box, for a year.  Sigh.....   Update from her foster mom:  Brea is developing into a very determined cat!  She wants to do whatever comes into her mind!  I didn't think she would be able to play very well with her injured leg.  But she LOVES 'Da Bird' cat toy!  I keep it low but she still jumps to get it and chases it at full speed!  She has no problem jumping up on the bed.  Her eye problem doesn't seem to cause a problem either.  Chasing a cat toy is one of her favorite things to do!  She continues to be very affectionate and will follow me and rub against my leg.  But Bea is not a lap cat.  Her only problem is running right in front of me while I am walking.  I hope to get her to stop doing this.  Maybe that is how her leg was broken; by someone stepping on it. She has become quite the character and would be a good addition to your home.  I wouldn't adopt her if you have young children.  She sometimes tries to scratch when picked up.   

A cat can live 12-18+ years if cared for properly. Be sure you are able to care for it for its lifetime.
