Babe is a very lucky kitty. She was brought to a local vet as an orphan, and was expected to be euthanized. Instead, she found her way into a foster home for the shelter.
Babe has functioning eyeballs that do not fill her eye sockets to capacity. This caused problems with her eyelashes curling in and rubbing on her eyes. Thanks to the generous donation of veterinarian time by State Street Animal Hospital, Babe underwent a surgical “facelift” to lift her eyelashes up and away from her tiny eyes to relieve and prevent future irritation. Although she is visually impaired, Babe can see quite well. In combination with her other super-senses, she is just a normal everyday kitty. She is cautious in trusting her depth perception but has no problems with stairs. In bright light or darkness, she may still crash into walls or chair legs if running through the house at top speeds, but other than those obvious impediments, there is nothing to stop her from blending right in with your family.
Babe is available at the Batavia Petco.
Babe gets along great with other cats and even well-behaved dogs. She loves toys, especially ones that respond with some kind of noise. She doesn’t know her own strength and is still learning self control. She gets a tap on the nose and a “NO” as a reminder to play gently, and she learns very quickly. She will continue to need these reminders as she grows, and until then we would not suggest a home with very small children.
Babe is currently at her rambunctious pre-teen stage. When grown, Babe will be a great lap cat. She currently plays until she is exhausted then climbs up onto your chest to give you a whole slew of kisses and then settles in for a cuddle. She loves a back scratch, all the way from her English bull terrier nose down to her 90 degree bent tail. She loves sleeping in front of the wood-stove in her foster home... It's just so exhausting being a kitten you know. Babe is a very loving and special kitty just waiting for her furever home. Come and meet her today!
