Adopted by Helena
Pearl is a beautiful, odd-eyed Turkish Angora. She is a playful girl, once she gets to know and trust you. That can take some time, so a patient, cat experienced adopter is most important.
Pearl was very shy and frightened when she arrived at her foster home. She spent the first week hiding under things or curled up in the corner of the room. As she became braver, she would attack her fosters feet! We assume she had been kicked and it was her way of protecting herself. That behavior stopped when she began to feel safe. Then she allowed short periods of petting and brushing.
She came to us with problems on her ear tips which were treated by a vet. Nothing cleared it up, so she had pinna surgery to remove the dead part of her ears and a biopsy was performed. Often white cats that spend time outdoors develop cancer. Her biopsy showed excessive sun exposure and actinic keratosis, but no cancer was found. So she definitely must be indoor only and kept out of the sun if she has access to a catio. A shady covering is essential for sweet Pearl.
Pearl is now very trusting of her foster mom. She enjoys some brushing and will sit on her lap and purr while gently being petted. She loves to play and chase feathers on a string. She loves her humans company but it still frightened by loud noises. A quiet home where she is the only pet or where there is one other calm, laid back pet, would be best for Pearl. Are you the person to add this beautiful girl to your home? With time and patience, she will be an incredible cat and companion. Pearl is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
She currently lives with her foster family in Carmichael.

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 interests!
