Fiona was adopted from Tabby’s Place years ago. Unhappily, her adopter became seriously ill, so she was returned to us. Fiona is a pretty tortoiseshell, with a larger patch of buff fur on her chest and a distinctive buff stripe down her forehead; the rest of her coat is the usual tortie mottling of orange/buff/black/brown. Our best guess is that she was born early in 2001. At some point before she came to us, Fiona was declawed in front.
When she came back to us, Fiona was found to have severe stomatitis, meaning she’s allergic to the plaque on her teeth and gums. Her teeth have been extracted as a result, and her mouth has improved quite a bit. She is still on medications for that condition, however, and we expect she’ll need to be on those long-term. Fiona is also diabetic and requires insulin twice a day.
Fiona can be very affectionate with people, but she has a good deal of typical tortie “cattitude”; when she’s done, she’s done. She’s not aggressive, however, and would likely just walk away from you. We believe she’d do best as an only cat, but may tolerate one or two other cats in the house. She’s on the smaller side, which is somewhat unusual for Tabby’s Place cats!
If you’re looking for just one feline and willing to consider an older cat, do consider our alluring tortie.
