About Inari

Adopted by Lisa & Jeremy
Born ~2016, F, Brown Spotted Rosette Bengal

Inari is a sweet young beautiful 2-3 year old Brown Spotted-Rosette glittered Bengal girl that is friendly and talkative! She has conversational opinions!

She showed up at a community garden in the Eugene Oregon area in Oct 2017. The volunteers did their best to look after her in the outdoor garden areas, feeding her and occasionally letting her in to a work shed at night when Winter temperatures were below freezing. In January, one of these volunteers took her into the vet. Examination and testing showed she had been previously spayed. Test results were positive for FIV, which was most likely due to an encounter with an infected cat while she had been living the life of a stray kitty. She doesn’t let that hold her back at all though! Positive cats can enjoy a normal lifespan with no apparent health problems resulting from the virus. FIV is species specific. It can only be transmitted from cat to cat, not to humans or other animals. Inari needs to be the one and only cat in her forever home, as she is not friendly toward other cats. She hasn’t been around dogs or children since she’s been in foster care, so we don’t know how she would do with them.

This very active kitty is true to her Bengal nature and loves to chase Da Bird, the undercover mouse, and play with mouse toys! Inari is very inquisitive, and wants to be where people are. She enjoys being petted and told how very beautiful she is, and she will agree with you. Sometimes she comes up and lays next to you if you’re sitting down long enough. At times, she’ll even climb into your lap for some snuggles! She prefers to not be picked up and held.

Inari has been in foster care for several months to resolve some health issues from her life on the streets. She has had some problems properly digesting commercial dry and wet foods. We have determined that a home-cooked or raw meat diet is best. Right now she’s on chicken baby food with a raw supplement mixed in so she gets all of the nutrients she needs to support her immune system. When she first arrived her anal glands were inflamed and needed to be expressed by the Vet. This is something that will need preventative monitoring. She is spayed, microchipped, parasite free, and current on vaccinations. The ideal home is a quiet stress free environment with loving and caring people who are with her most of the time and will have no other cats.

Are you the right fit for this very sweet and friendly girl ?

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
