- What's Important...
Lolli came from a local animal shelter. This little girl is a “double” Scottish fold, not a good thing. The Scottish Fold has a genetic mutation that affects the development of cartilage. The most obvious outward manifestation of this is making the ear cartilage fold so the ears bend forward, giving the cat its characteristic appearance.
Unfortunately, the genetic defect that causes an abnormality of the ear cartilage also can cause severe abnormalities of the cartilage along the spine, joints, basically, anywhere in the body – there can be defective development; severe bone and cartilage abnormalities. This technical term is osteochondrodysplasia. These bone and cartilage abnormalities can lead to a reluctance to move, abnormal posture, lameness, misshapen limbs and various system issues.
Lolli is one of those unfortunate cats, that were fortunate enough to find PPCR! If Lolli moves very very slowly she can walk. Slow is not something she likes or does. She will scoot across the floor super-fast! Loli has a can-do positive attitude in everything she does! Nothing scares her or discourages her. She climbs tall cat towers and plops herself into hammocks! She is a very confident kitty and loves people. It is so easy to love this girl.
All she needs is someone who can love her and help her when she needs it! Her deformity is focused between her shoulders and does affect some basic control areas in her body so she will need your help with this every day. We have had many people fall in love with her, but none were willing to make the commitment needed to take on this innocent joyful soul.
What are the issues? She is unable to use the litter box. We have not tried diapers to help alleviate the issue, however, this is a potential solution for avoiding poop bombs. She does give a warning when she is going; one of her back legs always goes straight up in the air! The next thing she needs is to have her bladder expressed twice a day. This is not as scary as it sounds, honestly! She is very good about the whole thing and after you have done it a couple of times it really is easy to do! This will ensure her bladder stays healthy – since the disease does affect this ability as well. We will help you so you know what to do for her. Do you have lots of love, dedication, and patience? Do you really want to make a difference? Lolli could be the one for you.
We really want Lolli to be home for the holidays! All Lolli wants is a forever home and someone to cherish her. Could you be that one in a million who can rise to the challenge and be this little girl’s dream come true? If you think you are contact Dayna at firstname.lastname@example.org right now!
Lolli is an incredible blessing, an extraordinary gift to PPCR, and a daily reminder of what the important things in life really are: Love, kindness, and family. In a life full of distractions, once in a while it helps to be reminded of what is really important so we can rejuvenate our heart and soul. In retrospect, a person’s most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and hands willing to help.
