Paisley was about 6 months old when she was found on the side of a road, crying, cold, starving, and sick with a respiratory infection. Fortunately, a loving passerby found her, took her in, and then asked AC PAW to foster her. She healed and grew, and now she is healthy and happy and ready for a forever home.

Paisley loves to play with toys and anything she finds around the house. She is sweet and curious and good at entertaining herself. Her antics are really quite comical. She reaches under the stove for lost treasures she batted there, carries a toy in her mouth all around the house as she meows, buries herself in blankets or clothing, and runs and spins on the bed while chasing her tail.  

Paisley is unique and special, but unless you watch her very closely, you won't notice why.  Paisley has very limited vision and hearing. Her eye problem is called Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). She can see light and sometimes movement and large objects.  She can hear only loud noises. The vet said she was probably born this way and will be completely blind at a young age. In spite of this, she is amazing at getting around the house and into things like any cat would. She jumps and climbs and investigates everything. You will hardly even know she is different. She does not require any special care or medication.
She currently lives with other cats and a dog in her foster homes. She wants to be friends with the other pets, but the livelier ones don't always understand that she can't see or hear their communication. We do think she would benefit from having an animal companion as long as it is calm and friendly towards her. Her foster would not recommend a home with young children.  

This lovely girl has an indomitable spirit. She will be a gem of a pet.
