Chibi is a word for "small child" child in Japanese. When Chibi came to her foster home, she was about 6 weeks old but was only the size of about a two week old. She was extremely tiny for a very long time. She is still a small cat. She has an exotic look - she is a beautiful cat. Chibi is loving, sweet and still plays a great deal. She gets along with other cats when she wants to and loves her foster mom's dog. She has been fine around small children as well.
Chibi has a condition called stomatitis which causes extremely painful ulcers to form in her mouth and on her gums. Stomatitis is an auto-immune disorder. She gets a steroid shot when she starts having problems and it has worked wonderfully for her. Some cats with stomatitis may eventually have to have their teeth pulled if the condition can no longer be controlled by the steroids. Because of her need for careful monitoring so that she doesn't have to be in needless pain and can be taken for the steroid injection sooner rather than later, Chibi is considered special needs.
She is an awesome, beautiful girl that is a perfectly healthy cat other than her having stomatitis! She will give you loads of love for the rest of her life!!
