This beautiful girl’s fur has the richest light and dark coloring. In the right light the contrast in her fur glows. I have tried to show this in photos below. She has a mile long plume of a tail, dark on the top and lighter on the bottom. She is white mitted – which means she has white feet – and she has a snowy white bib. Her fur is soft and plush. With her long body and unusual long fur she is a very beautiful Maine Coon girl.
Anastasia also has a wonderful personality, loving and confident, easy going in new situations. She had been handed in over the counter at a shelter with a festering abscess under her chin. I learned of her the afternoon of the day she was to be euthanized. A rescue friend sent me her posting which said “Friendly Beauty’s FINAL day”. No rescue had stepped forward for her. I know this is hard to imagine. In addition to her abscess, the shelter vets found her teeth were badly in need of a dental. So here she was a middle aged cat in need of medical treatment right in the middle of kitten season. Not a good time to be left in a shelter. The shelter helped Purebreds by testing her blood values for us and offering some of their GAP funds (Guardian Angel Funds) to help pay for the dental she needed. I was delighted to get her and was also a bit surprised at how lovely she was.
Anastasia’s blood panel showed she was a very healthy girl. Her kidney values are low normal – not typical of an aging kitty. (I wonder if her age estimate is correct?) She had her dental procedure last week. We found she had abscesses at the roots of some molars, a canine that needed to come out and a number of other extractions. Her last family clearly had not been caring for her very painful mouth. Some kitties have bad teeth genes and she may be one of them. Persians, for example, are known for their bad teeth. Many of Anastasia’s teeth were already missing and now most of them except the canines are gone. This does not hurt her. I have seen many times that cats eat just fine without any teeth at all. The tongue does all the work.
So here is Anastasia. She has gained some weight and is the picture of health. She is now ready to go home and run her new household. She would be happy to be the only cat in her new home but she also may be fine with gentle, friendly kitties. I don’t know how she is with dogs. Anastasia is a good natured girl and would likely be fine with older, respectful children. She is an easy cat as most Maine Coons are, a good family cat. These kitties are loving, entertaining housemates, good partners to change sheets with and watch late night TV.
Some family will be so lucky to have her company.
Anastasia eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
