Nina's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Nina's Story...
Hi- I'm NINA! I'm petite and just as cute as can be! I am spayed, up to date on shots, tested negative for both FIV and FeLv (feline leukemia) and I am treated for the prevention of ear mites, fleas and worms. I am also housetrained/litterbox trained and I enjoy being an indoor only kitty! I am (approx.) almost 1 yr old as of 8/2010.

I am listed as SPECIAL NEEDS because I have NO BACK LEGS. I get around find (it looks as if I'm gliding) on just my two front legs-- I have been this way nearly my whole life and it's not a problem at all! I'm just as happy go-lucky as can be. You see, what happened is that I was born in very filthy conditions and I was one of the few survivors from my family because of how horrible the conditions were where we were born. The bugs covered us and we had open wounds...well I don't want to get into too much detail, but basically the bugs took over my back legs before I was rescued. The vets agree that I'm healthy as can be- and I don't need any ongoing care for my back "leg" area-- but I just look a bit different than other cats- that's all. I do need to have a low litterbox that I can get in and out of and I need a home with no steps or very few steps. Otherwise I get around just fine! People tell me it's amazing- but I don't think it's any big deal-- I'm just so thankful to be healthy now and to have been rescued! Gosh, I'm a lucky little girl!

I do not care for dogs much-unless they are super calm. And if there are other cats in my adopted home- I prefer that they not be dominate cats (as I get scared when other cats chase me!). My foster home has 2 other cats and I do really well with them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE people-- and I sure can't wait to meet you! I'm just patiently waiting to find my furr-ever home now!

I am cute as can be and VERY LOVING! I love to be petted, sit on your lap, to chase the lazer light and I just love to be loved! My dream home would be:
-a calm household
-no dogs
-no children under age 5 (I do not like being chased)
-a VERY loving home that I can call my own furr-ever!
-a house with no steps or very few steps

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nina, a Xenia Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Xenia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Xenia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Xenia already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Xenia breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Xenia paves the way for another one to be saved.
