This is a real special-needs cat, but she doesn't know it! Slidell is a sassy young cat who makes her own fun. She always finds something to play with and especially loves chasing feather-on-a-string toys. Although she likes to have her own space, she gets along with other cats.
Born in 2011, Slidell can't use her back legs, but they don't cause her any pain or slow her down. She's FIV+ and incontinent, so needs to have her bladder expressed and take some medications. During her daily baths, she grumbles and growls while planning her escape, but never nips.
Sometimes, Slidell stands on all four legs for a few minutes, gaining muscle strength. This pretty little girl loves life and doesn't know she's different. Could you be the compassionate cat lover who gives sweet Slidell a home?
