Star had a very hard start in life. She had kittens, then ended up staying in a basement because she was too afraid to come up into the house with the people who found her. She is very afraid of other cats and dogs. She will even slap at her caregiver if they move too fast. When she came to us, Star had lots of sores on her body and loss of hair. She still has bare places on the back of her head and neck. She has improved with higher quality food, Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach, which she will need to continue to eat, sprinkled with Fortiflora. Star needs someone who will be very patient and lives in a calm environment, preferably with no other animals. She will need a private place for her litter box, her food and to sleep. She is coming around, but it will take time. We can only hope there is someone out there who is willing to give Star some patient love and time.
