Phoebe was adopted as a kitten 8 years ago, and the adopter never registered her with their information. This summer she was found by animal control as a stray. We have not been able to track them down, nor were there any postings to be found for someone looking for her.
She has obviously been a stray for quite some time. Her condition when she came in makes us sad that her people failed her, but we are happy that we were found via her microchip so we can help her again. She was covered with fleas and losing her hair. There were scabs allover her body, and she had been obviously chewing her tail due to the itchiness the fleas brought her, causing an abscess that needed to be treated. She weighed less than 6 pounds on intake but is gaining it back nicely.
Now, let's move away from her past and learn more about Phoebe's present and future! She is a very affectionate cat and will follow you wherever you go. She still isn't sure about herself when trying to jump up (this could be a good thing for your kitchen counters!), but once in your lap she will relax for days. Medically, she is much better. Her tail has healed, but will always have some scar tissue (she is not a fan of her tail being petted and will gently let you know it). Her fleas and internal parasites are all cleared up, and she currently weighs over 7lb. We also ran some bloodwork on her and she passed with flying colors!
Phoebe has been introduced to dogs and would do well with other animals in the home. She is curious to say hello to anyone new. Adoption fee of $90 (reduced since she was already spayed) includes microchip, vaccines, deworming, FIV/FeLV testing, and flea prevention
