About This Cat

Born ~4/30/14, F, Persian Mix

Callie is a small black, orange, and white Calico Persian mix with deep copper eyes and soft medium length fur.

She came into rescue from the Sacramento SPCA. Not much is otherwise known of her origin. Callie arrived to the SPCA underweight and was given flea treatment. She was spayed, had a microchip implanted, and had her ears cleaned. Then she was adopted out for about a week before being returned to the SPCA for an unexpected medical complication. The adopters’ vet diagnosed megacolon based on Callie’s constipation.

The family who adopted Callie included two small children, a cat, and multiple dogs. The adopters who returned Callie reported that Callie was indoor only and slept on the bed, that Callie played well with the children, and that Callie ignored the other cat and was good around the dogs. They described Callie as a “very sweet and friendly” outgoing lap cat who liked being held and used the scratching post. This description seems apt, as Callie wholeheartedly ignores all of her current foster cat brothers, instead preferring to curl up and purr on someone’s lap. Even if that lap is already occupied, Callie doesn’t mind sharing. Callie is also fine with her human foster toddler brother, as long as he is gentle.

Callie received an enema while under anesthesia by the SPCA, and while under, Callie also received a dental cleaning. Callie was then brought into rescue. Callie’s foster mom worked with the local vet and fellow rescue fosters, and a diet was created to keep Callie regular. Callie has not needed an enema since June 7th, 2017 and has gained weight. Callie is on a diet of Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Fiber Response dry cat food and wet food mixed with canned pumpkin. Callie still takes Cisapride once a day, which Callie’s foster mom mixes in a small spoonful of Callie’s wet food mixture to ensure the medication is consumed before giving Callie a larger portion of wet food mixture. The local vent stated that the Cisapride might not be permanent, but it is currently helping Callie to regularly eliminate. Callie is a complete sweetheart and would do well in any type of family environment.

Callie is otherwise healthy and should be brushed at least weekly. Callie eats Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Fiber Response dry food and a 50/50 mixture of canned pumpkin and wet food. Callie takes 1ml of Cisapride daily.

Callie will come to you spayed, tested, microchipped and vaccinated.

Callie is litterbox perfect.

She is fostered in Napa, CA.
