Macaroon was born at the end of April, 2011. In fact, she was at Tabby’s Place (and adopted from us) when she was a kitten. Unhappily, her adopter, a single gentleman, became very ill and was hospitalized long-term, and Macaroon was returned to us. Understandably, this turned her world upside down. Her adopter was her world, and she was his, so the separation, and her subsequent placement in a room with other felines, hasn’t been easy for her.
When she was returned, we were told she had a history of urinary tract infections. She has not had even one since her return, but what we *did* discover is that she develops urinary crystals. She is now on a prescription diet to prevent those and will have to remain on that diet for the foreseeable future. Also, at this point, Macaroon is too chunky. We’re working on whittling her waistline, but it will take time.
All-black Macaroon is very affectionate with visitors, so much so that she tends to hog all the attention she can. She can become overstimulated at times, and for this reason we think she would do best in a home without small children. We also believe she’d do best in a quiet household. Macaroon would probably be OK with another cat around, provided that the other feline wasn’t too domineering.
This young lady merits a loving, permanent home with someone who knows cats. Come in to meet her and see if you don’t agree!
