Papillon

At this writing (8/4/14), little Papillon is just about 3 months of age (we believe she was born at the very end of April, 2014). She’s a medium-hair brown tabby with a cream muzzle, and she’s got something of an exotic look to her, given her plume of a tail and long ear tufts. I’ve been told by several staffers that’s she’s affectionate and good-natured; in addition, she likes to climb on shoulders.

We don’t know what happened to this young lady when she was younger, but we do know she was found with a hairline fracture of the pelvis. Because she is so young, we expect this to heal fully. The downside is that there isn’t way way to put a cast on a pelvic bone, so she’s been on cage rest since she came to us. She’s obviously feeling good, as she wants to come out and is as active as the cage permits (that includes vigorous play-swatting through the cage bars with Picadilly). We’ll be doing another x-ray on her on or about August 5th; if she’s sufficiently healed, she’ll be let out of her cage. Watch this space for more news on this little girl, and do consider coming in to meet her; she’s adorable!
