MEET SNOWCONE!

Wow, what a stunning cat! This beautiful little all white Domestic Shorthair is named Snowcone! Snowcone made her way to City of Elderly Love after being found as a stray in Philadelphia and brought to animal control. Its amazing that Snowcone was able to navigate the streets safely since she is completely blind and mostly deaf! Snowcone lucked out when she found an amazing foster family where she has really been flourishing since being rescued from the shelter. She's now on the hunt for her forever family!

Snowcone is around 10 years old with a gorgeous white coat with pink accents. You might assume that a blind and deaf cat wouldn't have much of a personality or do much of anything, but you would be wrong! Snowcone is packed with pizazz and has a lot to offer one lucky family. She adores her human friends and enjoys being brushed, loves to cuddle (especially in your lap) and even drools a little when she's super happy! Snowcone also likes to chat and will meow a little "hello" when she wants to check in and make sure you're there! Despite being blind, Snowcone has no issues finding her litter box and uses it like a champ. One perk of being mostly deaf (or perhaps selectively deaf) is that she is not startled by loud noses like the hairdryer. And somehow, she can still hear a can of food being popped open across the room - funny how that works! Besides being blind due to cataracts, Snowcone also has sensitive skin and would benefit from a high quality diet and low-dust litter. Snowcone is currently living with other pets: cats, dogs and a parakeet! She is completely non-threatening to all of them and is happy to share her space with other pets. She even lets the parakeet sit on top of her! She would be a good addition to a multi-pet home. Snowcone would also do well in a small apartment or loft since she it would mean she doesn't have to navigate a lot of area and is very happy to find her favorite spots and curl up in them (usually the couch or bed). Snowcone doesn't like to be pet too roughly so a home without small children would probably be best for her, but she does enjoy meeting new people!

Snowcone is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. She is also FIV & FeLV negative. Interested in meeting her? Visit www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at info@cityofelderlylove.org!
