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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mabel, a Rathdrum British Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a British Shorthair for sale in Rathdrum, or seeking a British Shorthair cat from a breeder in Rathdrum.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rathdrum already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rathdrum breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even British Shorthair breeders who help with British Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rathdrum paves the way for another one to be saved.
