Content, Quiet, Special
Winnie is a mellow and happy girl. She likes to watch the world go by from her window perch (aka Cat TV), to chase the laser light, and to battle string toys. She plays with other cats but prefers privacy when she takes a nap. And if you have a vacant lap, she will take up residence in it and purr!
Winnie was born with Manx Syndrome, a defect that causes her to be incontinent. This means she needs a compassionate owner who will help her express her urine a few times a day; this sounds harder than it actually is, and APA! will provide instruction on how to do it. Winnie doesn't have a tail, which is totally cute, but it is also helpful in keeping her clean - she is so accommodating!
Winnie has beautiful green eyes and a sweet demeanor. She must always remain an indoor cat, but she does like to bask outside in a protected, enclosed area, such as a chicken coop or a rabbit hutch (without the chickens or rabbits, of course!).
If you are looking to adopt a wonderful cat who also has special needs, we think you should meet Winnie. She will completely love you back. Contact us to meet her today!
All APA! foster kittens/cats are tested for FeLV/FIV, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for worms/fleas, microchipped and come with a 30-day health insurance plan.
If you have additional questions about Winnie, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
