Hello. My name is Mabel and I have quite the story. I shouldn't even be alive. The only reason I am, is because Power of the Paw saved me. I was found outside by animal control on some property. I was unable to walk. Animal control took me into the vet and scanned me for a chip. I wasn't chipped, and the vet didn't know what was wrong with me. Animal control called POTP and said that I was going to be euthanized because I was so sick unless they took over my care. 

How could they say no? Look at this face! They still aren't sure what happened to me, but I am very special. I had some pretty severe neurological issues. They think I possibly had head trauma or maybe toxoplasmosis. I was hospitalized for quite a while so I could get stablized. I went onto antibiotics and had to get daily fluids in order to keep from being dehydrated. For quite some time, I would have these scary "episodes" where my legs would splay out and my head would tilt, leaving me immobile temporarily. 

Power of the Paw didn't give up though, and here I am a few weeks later. I no longer have episodes, but I am a bit shaky when I walk. I can still be a normal cat. I am kind, loving, and love attention. I love to be held and purr when you pet me. I am good with other cats, and can even get along with dogs that are nice to me. Even though my entire ordeal, I was always able to get to a litterbox so I am litterbox trained. I love kids and all people really. 

If you want a special cat with a special story, I'm the girl for you! I'm ready to have that perfect home that can love me for who I am! If you are interested, please go to and start the process. I need that special person who won't judge my special needs! 

ADOPTION FEE: WAIVED includes spay, FVRCP, Leukemia, Microchip, Rabies, Deworm, treatment and vet check.

About Power of the Paw

About Our Rescue Group...

We began in November 2011 as a facebook page that shared dogs in high kill shelters and we grew into something unexpected. We now have fosters, volunteers, and supporters that have grown the rescue into something we never imagined. We are volunteer run, and we are not government funded. We run off community donations.
