Gnocchi is a curious girl. She loves to sit at the computer and also watch TV. She is a wonderful, loving, incredibly social, friendly, schmooshy cat! She easily interacts with everyone, and loves to snuggle, too. She was a bottle baby that had feline herpes (a very common virus among cats) and has some long term effects of that illness from kittenhood. Her eye runs a bit, she sneezes and she sounds congested. As she matures, her symptoms are ebbing and she is not as symptomatic. The virus does not seem to be shedding, and she lives among other cats without passing the feline herpes to them. She is quite healthy and happy! She would be a wonderful addition to a moderately busy household where there is plenty to keep her busy, and people who want to have cats investigating everything they do. She has no fear of people. Because of her history of Rhinotracheitus (feline herpes: http://www.2ndchance.info/rhinotracheitis.htm), she must be placed with a person who is experienced with cats, or quite observant. As she is growing up, her immune system is developing and herpes outbreaks are diminishing. However, because she had been very affected by herpes, she has lost partial sight in her left eye. There is still the possibility of an outbreak, and symptoms must be taken seriously. Gnocchi is spayed, microchipped, up to date on her shots, has tested negative for FIV/FeL. She has been dewormed, and is free of fleas. All of which are part of the adoption donation of $125. We strongly believe in the "buddy system" for our rescues. In most cases, if there is not another fur baby in the home we ask that you adopt our kits with a partner, unless otherwise mentioned that they would be happy alone. Please complete an application to be considered to adopt Gnocchi. http://www.soundearth.com/SEAdoptionForm.pdf To view more pictures, and learn about our programs go to: https://www.facebook.com/StrayHELPNY We raise our rescues in foster homes so they are already accustomed to people, phones, radios and tv; all the noises of home life. We know the behaviors of them as well and can give a good assessment on what will be a fabulous match for you and your home. Because we work out of our home we require a completed application before you come to visit.
