Serenade's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

Serenade's Story...
Serenade is a classic tabby girl born with lateral eyelid agenesis- a congenital abnormality where the outer upper half of the eyelid doesn't form, and hence fur the the skin's edge rubs against the eyelids

She and her brother were found as 12 - 24 hour old orphaned newborns tangled together since birth in each-others umbilcal cords. They were brought to a veterinary hospital for help and taken in by their foster mother. Her brother ended up blind and 3-legged but despite his disabilities was adopted and where the descicated umbical cords were cut away and the kittens separatis doing great. Serenade's disabilities are less dramatic and she has remained unwanted.

Serenade is now about 3 years old. She has had the skin where her outer eyelids should have been frozen to kill off the fur rubbing on her eyes, which has improved her comfort a lot (decreased her squinting a lot - squinting in the pictures as she does not like cameras). Despite her disability, she can see normally - here eyes/eyelids just have an abnormal shape and appearance.

She has been viral tested, vaccinated, and spayed.

Serenade is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She loves attention and purrs happily when cuddled. She gets along well with other cats once she gets to know them and adapts to dogs`with a little time. She's a little shy with strangers and would probably do best in a relatively quiet home. Please help her find a good home soon!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Serenade, a Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Santa Rosa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa paves the way for another one to be saved.
