Born ~2016, F, Black and White Maine Coon Mix
Adoption Fee: $175
It’s hard not to love a black and white kitty with a little pink nose. This sweet girl had been trying to survive outside on her own. We don’t know what happened to her but a cat lover found her and brought her to the shelter. She was thin and dusty. This nice shelter did a blood panel on her and found that she had an overactive thyroid, which makes her metabolism speed up and burn thru calories. These kitties are always thin.
We at Purebreds have helped a lot of thyroid kitties and know that a very inexpensive pill, methimazole, is what they need. We put her on the standard dose of one pill twice a day. Now a month later she has gained a pound and her recent lab work tells us this is the correct dose for her. Perfect. If you take one of these tiny pills and put it in a little bowl with a drop of water it instantly dissolves. Then you mix in a little wet food -maybe a small teaspoon – and give it to her to eat Kara eats it immediately and then you give her the rest of her wet food meal. Works like a charm. No pilling necessary. Methimazole is the easiest medication to give. Someone gave us some transdermal ( thru the skin ) methimazole so right now we are using that and will give it to her adopter. In this form you rub a measured amount on the inside of her ear. Also very easy. As long as her weight is stable you know she is doing fine though your vet will want to check her thyroid level periodically.I don’t want you to worry about giving her her medication. It is not very expensive and it is not very hard.
So who is she?? She is a darling, a beautiful Maine Coon girl with dramatic black and white markings. Her fur is like silk. Currently she is 8 pounds and she will gain another pound or two to get to her normal size. She is enormously affectionate. She loves humans and all sorts of attention they bring. Her favorite thing is to place her head in your hand. Pet me Love me Let me sit in your lap. She is going to be a great companion for someone who wants the company of a funny, intelligent girl. She looks like a cartoon character.
However please be advised she wants you all to herself. She does not want to, and won’t, share you with any other kitty. I do not know how she is with dogs but she is so cranky about other cats being the only pet in the house might be the easiest home for her. She loves windows and food and humans and catnip. Maine Coon mix lovers know what intelligent loving companions they are. Some family will be so lucky.
