Rani is a special story. She washed up on a lawn in Speedway during heavy rains and flooding. The homeowner thought she was dead, but got her warm and got some of the fatty fluid around canned cat food in her. She started to perk up and we picked her up from the homeowner. Rani was covered in mud and mats and had to be slowly and painstakingly brushed out until she was left with very little hair. Rani's muscles were also wasted. She was in bad shaped. So she was named after the Disney water fairy that gave up her wings.
Rani kept eating and getting stronger. Her fur continued to grow back. But the stronger she got, the more nervous she got. She adores other cats, but she is terrified of dogs and most people. She will even still hiss at us when we first approach her. But once we start petting her, she purrs and loves having her back and chin scratched.
Rani needs a patient owner who will understand the rough start she has had to life and also has other feline friends for her to bond with.
