This week I would like to share with you a “tail of three kitties.”
The three special kitties are Yang, Inara, and Kaylee. They are, in fact, so special that we have created a special promotion just for them — Adopt Yang and Kaylee and Inara can come along home for free!
We were originally introduced to these ladies through South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter’s outreach program. Their owner reached out for help, and we began networking them prior to their arrival at the shelter. Their situation was urgent, however, and at the time we had open cages at the shelter, so we brought them in so we could begin providing them with some needed veterinary care and continue to promote them for adoption or rescue.
As soon as I began working with their family, for some reason I had a feeling about these cats — I knew there was something special about them. The pictures I received of them showed what appeared to be beautiful cats, but it was hard to tell because they were blurry. Immediately upon their arrival, it was clear that with better nutrition and care, their already interesting faces would become showstoppers. And since beauty is only skin deep, I was thrilled to see how sweet and affectionate the three ladies were, even as they sat in intake in what had to be a stressful situation.
Yang is the mother, and one year older than her 10-year-old daughters. She is the most exotic looking, with a beautiful round face and expressive eyes. She is also the most energetic. She will do zoomies up the cat tree. She loves to be petted and will gently paw you for attention.
Inara is chatterbox who loves attention! She’s the first one to greet you when you walk into the room. Inara was the skinniest of the bunch, and we noticed that even with increased feedings, she was having difficulty gaining weight. We were able to run blood work that determined she has a hyperthyroid disease, which fortunately is an easy fix. She simply requires an inexpensive medication each day and she’s already begun to improve.
