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 http://powerofthepaw.org/adopt/cat-adoption-application/ and start the process. I need that special person who won't judge my special needs!
