We would like you to meet our two newest cattery residents, Twisty Kittens Shanta (also on this site) and Fanta! These 5-month old special needs siblings were living in a Los Angeles area back yard of an elderly couple who could no longer care for them. They were rescued by one of our rescue partners, Hope for Paws and transferred to Room 8 to find their permanent, loving, forever home. Shanta (the female) and Fanta have a condition called radial hypoplasia (RH or "Twisty") which is associated with one particular form of polydactyly. Both of these kitties have extra digits on their back feet. RH also causes shortened and/or misshapen front legs. Fanta’s front legs bend forward at the “elbow” area and Shanta has one shortened front leg. But cats are very adaptable creatures as you will see in the attached video. Because of the inequality in the size of their legs, RH cats have peculiar ways of getting about. The hind legs become well muscled due to being the main form of locomotion and the tail may be used as a support when the cat sits upright. (Shanta and Fanta do great Meerkat impressions). RH is not a disability to these two. They are so sweet and the minute you pet them they start to purr. A young girl was helping us when we were taking the video and she described their fur as being “as soft as my blankie”. We are looking for the perfect home for them (they need to go together); one that will provide them with the love and care they deserve and understanding of their special condition. They have been altered, are up-to-date on their vaccinations, and are microchipped. They are ready to go! If you have a place in your heart and your home for Shanta and Fanta, and are interested in meeting them, please contact us today!
