Sweet Tiana has been through a lot in her year of living. She was born with a very rare condition called ARSA Megaesophagus and required a specialized surgery to save her life.
ARSA is a congenital malformation of blood vessels arising from the heart. These vessels cause the esophagus to become entrapped, entangled and compressed and it makes it very difficult for food to pass through the esophagus.
In January, Tiana was taken to the University of Georgia, Veternary Training Hospital where she met with a team of surgeons. They were able to correct the issue with the vessels from Tiana’s heart that were causing a strain on her esophagus. She has now completely recovered from her surgery and is ready to find her forever home.
Although Tiana had corrective surgery, she still requires a few things to be able to have a happy and healthy life.
First, Tiana wants to be the only pet in your home. She doesn’t enjoy the company of other animals and wants her human all to herself.
Second, she has to eat off of an elevated feeder. She has one currently that will go with her to her forever home. She can only eat wet food and she typically eats about 3 meals a day. Tiana absolutely can not have dry food. It causes her to choke and regurgitate. Tiana loves to eat and gets crazy excited when you feed her!
Other than that, Tiana is your typical kitty! She’s super playful and she runs really fast! She’s a lap cat on her terms and but loves snuggles. She also absolutely loves attention from her people.
If you are approved to adopt Tiana, her foster mom will go over Tiana’s daily routine with you and show you how to feed her. She will answer any additional questions you may have and help you to be confident in caring for this amazing, one of a kind girl.
