Facts about Pocohantis

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 26240
  • Hair: Short
This beautiful lady is Pocohantis, a 10 year old front de-clawed tiger/torti that is so deserving of a fresh start in life. Pocohantis came to us when she was found as a stray in need of some help. Let's address a few things right off the bat- this poor girl had such a bad ear infection at some point in her life that she got a hematoma from it, and now has a crinkly ear. She is also a little older, and she's been de-clawed, but Pocohantis is just the sweetest most pleasant cat that wants nothing more than to be with you and curl up in your lap. She is an absolute love that enjoys making new friends and is so happy to mush up against you and get a little attention. She's mild mannered and super sweet, and she gets along just fine with most cats that she meets. She obviously didn't have such a great life up until now but she sure deserves a wonderful one going forward. If you can give Pocohantis the loving, safe home that she's been dreaming of, please come in and meet this sweetheart. File#26240 5/14/16
