Cat of the Week: Opal

Julia D Cat of the Week

Opal is a gorgeous and friendly senior kitty in need of a loving home to give her some comfort and TLC as she ages. She was rescued by a local resident who was trapping stray cats as part of a neighborhood TNR effort. Her rescuer realized very quickly that this little lady was extra special and needed some help! Opal has been spayed and vaccinated. At her spay appointment, we discovered that she was missing all of her teeth except for two bottom canines. Opal’s eyes both appeared to be shrunken and opaque (a sign of glaucoma) and she had areas of irritation from entropion (the lash line was curling into her eyeball).  Opal no longer has vision and we’ve worked hard to make sure that she is comfortable and not in pain!

We also unfortunately learned that Opal has feline leukemia, so while we were able to care for all of her medical needs we do understand that she does have a limiting illness. She needs a home where she is the only cat or where she only lives with other feline leukemia-positive cats – no exceptions to this, please.   Opal is very friendly and cuddly and she’s ready to live in a home of her own with very special people who understand the rewards of caring for a senior special needs kitty! Opal is about 10 years old.

Opal’s adoption fee is $85 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, and a microchip with free lifetime registration.
