How I Arrived At NHS: I was seen hanging around a racetrack for a few months and no one could find an owner for me so brought me into Northwoods. I had an injured front leg so a staff member took me home to take care of until they figured out if I needed an amputation. The veterinarian believes I have something called Brachial Plexus Avulsion and my front left leg is paralyzed from it. It happened long before I came to Northwoods and doesnt cause me pain. I dont need amputation and I actually still use my leg like a kick stand sometimes. It does not hinder me being a normal young cat.

Notes from my foster mom: Sweet Pea is a quiet girl who could grow on you quickly. She likes to curl up in a chair, in the clothes basket, in the cupboard, really anywhere she could fit she would check it out and see if it is cozy. She has started getting used to the noises of the house. I dont think she had ever been in one before. The ceiling fan still scares her some. She looks up all the time when its on. She enjoys cuddling at bedtime and loves her head rubbed and ears scratched. She is starting to realize that most people pet gently and that it actually feels good. She has grown to enjoy longer periods of petting before moving on to something else. She regularly comes to her name or honey. Likes to play with balls, run behind or under furniture during cat crazy hour. She uses her leg to play, clean, use the litter box, it really doesnt bother her. Looking out the window or being higher to check things out are things she enjoys. She jumps up without any issue. Sweet Pea is a really fitting name to this sweet little girl. She was kept separate from the other pets in the house but I think she would warm up to them after a slow introduction.

Cats are feline leukemia/feline immunodeficiency virus tested (if applicable), if there is a litter, one in the litter is tested or the queen is tested. They have had at least their first distemper combo (booster given if been in our care for the appropriate time), been de-wormed, microchipped, and treated with a flea and tick product (if applicable). All the cats are spayed or neutered before they leave for their forever homes.
