One of our current adult fosters is a lovely Siamese (Blue Point, I think) named June. June is about a year old and is friendly and playful with people and small dogs. She is not likely to be a lap cat, and would probably do best as an indoor/outdoor cat given her free-roaming roots, but she is still a very viable pet for the right people.
She suffered a minor injury to her hindquarters (possibly from birth) but has adapted to it just fine; the only real indication is her walk which is slightly different from that of most cats. There is no indication that the injury will lead to any health problems down the line, although her chance of developing arthritis as a senior cat might be marginally higher than other cats.
If you’re interested in seeing June she will be at our store in Newpark Mall this Sunday. Our normal hours (noon to three p.m.) are being extended to six p.m., with two alternating shifts of cats; June will be available to visitors during the latter shift from three to six.
In related news, we are waiving our adoption fees on older cats (meaning, those closer to a year in age than a few months) and black cats and kittens. These cats and kittens are much harder to get adopted so we are forgoing the usual donation as an incentive to consider an adult cat or one of our sleek, elegant black kitties. The approval of a potential adopter’s application still applies, free or not.
