British Shorthair

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
Portabella is a gorgeous grey/white British/Domestic shorthair mix. She was loved by someone at some time but showed up at a colony one day to be fed. The colony caregiver noticed that she was definitely friendly and thought she was a "he" because there were no litters over several months. One day she showed up terribly injured (having been caught in a car engine) and the caregiver reached out for help. We sprang into action and got her to our vet, surgically repaired her broken jaw, and got pain meds for her carpal hyperextended leg. We also discovered she had a spay tattoo and had been previously spayed. After no-one came forward (no microchip) to claim her, one of our fantastic fosters agreed to make a spot for her and her beautiful personality blossomed during recovery.

Portabella loves a cushy window seat to view the outside and make biscuits. She LOVES her wet food (the diet during jaw repair) so she will likely beg for it. :) She likes to snuggle but will get into "play" mode quickly with a few soft nibbles. She would make a great kitty for a family with older kids familiar with cats.

She has been spay/neutered, microchipped, had all age appropriate vaccines, and a confirmed negative FeLV/FIV test.
