GORGEOUS, BREATHTAKING, STUNNING!!! All of these words describe this incredibly beautiful cat! She is sweet, yet private, and likes to be petted!
Ashley was relinquished from her home because of reoccuring UTI's and litterbox problems, but she is now doing fine after a round of antibiotics and using the litterbox EVERYTIME!
We had her declawed paws examined because she absolutely hates having them touched. The good news is that she doesn't need a second surgery to remove any left over bone fragments or re-grown claws! Her UTI's may be connected to her clawless paws because there is evidence and beliefs that the stress of a cat living without their claws can lead to stress related diseases such as UTI's and asthma (rugged, healthy clawing/scratching helps a cat "de-stress"). We now make sure she gets lots of playtime to burn up the calories and to get the stress out!
Ashley needs and wants a loving home, and she is very well deserving! She is very beautiful, very fluffy, friendly, and loves to purr. She would prefer to be the only cat in the household, she will tolerate other cats but will not interact with them.
Ashley did not have UTI's or litterbox issues prior to having her claws surgically removed. Unfortunately her family didn't research all the easy ways there are to deal with a cats natural and healthy instinct to scratch and no one at the vet's office mentioned that declawing is a very painful and invasive amputation surgery that can have serious risks and consequences. And now, because of the time and energy these problems took, her family decided they could no longer keep her. The good news is that their cat with claws gets to stay in the home (she doesn't have any "issues") so that's one less homeless cat in the world.
