We think Princess Bubblegum was born in early August, 2015. We was still just a baby when she arrived at Tabby’s Place, but it was evident immediately that something was very wrong; she was not doing well at all. After multiple tests, it was determined that she has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, or EPI. That sounds very scary indeed, but all it means is that she lacks a particular digestive enzyme. This enzyme can be given as a supplement; since we’ve started adding it to her food, our Princess has been thriving!
Princess Bubblegum is a short-to-medium haired calico, and a very pretty calico, at that. She does like to play, but she’s not as crazy as many other kittens her age. She seems to get along nicely with other cats. She’s very affectionate with people and particularly enjoys sitting on shoulders. That was fine when she was a tiny, fragile kitten, but she’s growing by leaps and bounds now; she might not fit so well on some shoulders when she is fully grown.
Something to note about Princess Bubblegum: She MUST eat ONLY food containing this digestive enzyme, and that will be true for the rest of her life. In a multiple-cat household, care will have to be taken that she does not get into the other cats’ food. Additionally, unless an adopter has a catio, or some other means to keep her from eating something she finds outside, she MUST live indoors only.
Our little calico charmer is waiting for her “forever” home…could that be yours?
