Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair
Meet handicapable kitto Blaine! Blaine and his siblings came to us after their mother was hit by a car. We believe he was born in September of 2021 and would do well with all ages, and other animals with proper introduction. Blaine was born with a birth defect in his back legs that causes him to walk / move different than a normal kitty would. His back legs never fully extend and he tends to walk on his tip toes, otherwise it does not affect his daily life. Blaine will not require any daily medication for his condition, but it could POSSIBLY affect his bladder in the future ( he may be more prone to urinary blockages but our vet can not be certain what long term affects will be for him - only time will tell ). Blaine will never be able to be declawed because they help him compensate for balance. He would also do best if kept at a healthy weight - being over weight will make moving even harder for him. Blaine is a wonderful guy, he is insanely curious and sweet as pie. He will wander around and chirp at you when you talk to him and he loves to wrestle with toys or friends, and climb cat towers too! Blaine would absolutely prefer to have a feline friend in his new home or to take one with him, he would not do well as a single cat.
