Deep in the grey days of February, a bright blaze lit Tabby’s Place. Like a shot of vitamin C, little Carrot came bearing life and zest.
Although he’s fully grown, Carrot still has the zip befitting a kitten. With a bottomless appetite for cuddles, fearless climbing skills, and a chirpy mouth that just won’t stop, Carrot has an ageless exuberance that soaks his whole world in sunshine.
You might think that such a happy creature must have been born in a bed of roses – or, at least, nutritious vegetables. But Carrot’s glee sings in spite of a sad story.
Due to either a traumatic injury or a congenital defect, Carrot has some difficulty in the bathroom department. He’s not exactly incontinent — more like incompletely continent (specifically, paraparetic, with partial loss of voluntary motor function). Although he can use the litter box himself, he can’t completely empty his bladder. This means Carrot requires human help to express his bladder and stay clean and healthy. We express his bladder three times each day, and bathe him weekly, or as needed.
Carrot lives his life at Tabby’s Place as a mission to deliver delight. He adores humans; he loves other cats; and his sweetness even brings him “off campus” to spread his Carrot-love. Carrot is one of our “Aged to Purrfection” cats, meaning he makes regular visits to local nursing homes.
Aged to Purrfection cats are exceptional kitties, selected for the program on the basis of their gentleness with people, their confidence, and their knack for delivering joy. Our Aged to Purrfection kitties make their merry visits each week, on a rotating basis. Carrot adores his visits to his elderly friends, who thrill at his affection.
We are smitten with this little dynamo, and we believe Carrot may very well find a home. Keeping Carrot clean and comfy is a small price to pay for getting to hear his “music” and delight in his comedy and cuddles. But, we understand that a cat like Carrot is not the right fit for everyone.
Until Carrot finds his forever fit, you can care for him with your generous monthly sponsorship. Your support will help give Carrot the extensive daily care and prescription diet he needs…and the love that keeps his song sweet and strong.
