In shelter Cat

Atlanta, GA, 30316
Pet name:
Extra-Toes Cat / Hemingway Polydactyl
Tabby (Tiger Striped)
Coat length:
Vera and her sisters Lilith and Penny came to us in April of 2019. They were living outside of a car repair shop and sadly, the owners said they had to go. He was throwing rocks at them to try to get them to leave. Some of the workers at the shop would sneak them food and reached out to us to help this special family of kittens. They were around 5 months old when we rescued them and they have syndactyl paws. This means that many of their toes are fused together and many of their claws are not functional.  The tricky part with this litter of kittens is that because they had grown up outside, they had almost no human interaction when they were kittens. 

When we first took them in, we were able to pick them up and hold them but they were very scared.  Because they were so shy, the shelter wanted to just fix them and release them to live outside. We felt like that would be a death wish for these kittens because they had no defenses with their deformed paws and claws. So we found an amazing foster mom willing to work with them and give them time to come out of their shells. And theyve come a long way over the past year! They all sleep and cuddle with their foster mom every night! Because theyve been together for so long, we are hoping and praying the right person or family comes along that wants to keep the 3 sisters together. They are completely inseparable!  

A little bit about Vera: 
Vera is the most reserved of the 3 sisters. She purrs and makes biscuits and she will let you pet her if youre sitting or laying down. But approaching her too quickly is still a bit scary for her.  But she loves playing with toys and interacts with her foster mom during playtime and at night when she likes to cuddle! And she loves wrestling and cuddling with her sisters! Shes a very easy kitty to have around but you definitely have to take Vera on her terms and appreciate her personality. It will take time for her to learn to trust you but once she does, it will definitely be worth the wait!
