Ginger's Info...

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

Ginger's Story...
Hello, we are the Krazy Animal Lovers and we have the privilege of getting to know this special kitty! Ginger (first 2 pics) her bonded sister Minnie (second 2 pics), and their three siblings were found in a sealed box at a home depot parking lot. They were on their way to a shelter where they would have been killed because they were only 2 days old and not old enough to eat on their own. Luckily they found their way to a wonderful foster before that happened and have been raised in a loving, happy home ever since! The whole litter is a bit...special! They are all Hemingway Polydactyl's meaning they have more toes than the average cat. They also had colobomas of the eyelids, which means that their eyelids did not fully form as they were developing and are therefore just smaller than usual. People can have these too! Ginger was also born blind, which makes her the most unique and special of the group!!

Now Ginger and her bonded littermate Minnie are the only two left who need a loving forever home! We are hoping that someone will see the beauty in this unique pair and will be willing to keep them together! Ginger takes comfort in her sister Minnie and Minnie enjoys caring for her. We can't imagine splitting up these two!

A little about Ginger and Minnie from their foster mom:

Ginger climbs on cat trees and all over my furniture and knows her way around the house perfectly.She is extremely playful and so loving!!! She even gets along with my husky and maltese =) Ginger knows when someone is around and will go to them and start rubbing against their leg or hand. She really is a great kitty. One thing though is that she knows when she is in an unfamiliar room or environment and she does get a bit unsure and will need to adjust. So when she goes to her new home she will need about a week or so to adjust and get to know where everything is.

Minnie is so affectionate! She would be a great lap kitty. She often puts her head out asking for little Eskimo kisses. She is very relaxed and laid back kitty and she has the most beautiful green eyes! Minnie also is great with dogs and actually loves being around them!

Neither of them have any bad habits and are accustomed to cat condos and a variety of toys and beds so they will be happy with whatever they are given. Even more awesome is that they are very accepting of newcomers! Whenever I bring in bottle babies, Minnie and Ginger are always grooming them and playing with them! So cute!!

Due to their limited vision they would only be safe as INDOOR-only kittens!! They come spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, de-flead, and de-wormed. If you think this special pair may be right for you, please call Olivia at 213.713.7703.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginger, a San Diego Polydactyl/Hemingway kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Polydactyl/Hemingway for sale in San Diego, or seeking a Polydactyl/Hemingway kitten from a breeder in San Diego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Diego 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 San Diego 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 Polydactyl/Hemingway breeders who help with Polydactyl/Hemingway rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Diego paves the way for another one to be saved.
