My name is Coraline!
I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and not good with dogs.
Coraline is a beautiful 5 year old Turkish Angora with the silkiest white fur and the most beautiful green eyes. This girl has had a difficult life, being the longest cat in St. Sophia's care. She came to us skinny with 2 small kittens (both of which have been adopted). And now Cora is patiently waiting for her turn.
Cora loves to be pet softly, and to stretch out in absolute comfort in a cozy spot on the couch or in the middle of the floor in a sunspot. Coraline would do best in a home with either no children, or older children who would understand that, as a princess, this lovely lady would prefer not to be man-handled or roughed up. Coraline is terrified of dogs and cannot to go a home with them. She would like a nice, quiet home with a woman, as she prefers them over men. Coraline loves catnip, a good snuggle, good food and a nice routine.
Not long after Cora came to us we realized she was constantly itching and scratching at herself and pulling out her hair. Numerous tests, treatments, therapies later, we've learned that sweet Coraline is allergic to everything -- chicken, barley, corn, and most other proteins. She therefore is on a very restricted and enforced diet, and requires steroid therapy on a bi-monthly basis. Cora is also allergic to dust, mites, and other environmental allergens, and needs occasional baths, and needs topical treatments for when she has acne and hot zone flare-ups.
As if this little girl doesn't have enough going on, she also has a slight heart-murmur (grade 1/2) which will need to be monitored if she ever has to undergo anesthesia. And, recently Cora underwent major surgery after another cat in her foster home attacked her. This poor girl had to have staples and stitches on her stomach and back legs and she isn't quite healed yet, but or vet believes she'll be ready for a new home soon.
Because of Cora's very special needs, she is eligible for our Special Homes Program -- this program allows the adopter to submit medical forms for financial assistance for any illnesses or issues that arise as a result of her current medical conditions.
