Persimmon is a funny girl. She’s a medium-sized (and slightly chunky) cat, with white on all four paws, white on her chest and tummy, white whiskers, and a thin, distinctive white "line" just under her nose; the rest of her coat is black. Our best guess is that she was born sometime in 2009. Persimmon behaves in a very maternal fashion around other cats, even if the other cats are adults. She enjoys grooming them (she also likes to groom hands) and at times really does act like a comforting Momcat. She’s also quite vocal when she doesn’t think you’re paying enough attention to her (that’s most of the time), and she likes a good "skritch" on either side of her neck.
Persimmon is one of our Special Needs crew. She has stomatitis; all of her teeth except for her incisors and lower canines have been extracted, and that’s helped her condition greatly. She’s on two different medications to keep the stomatitis under control, and that will be the case for the foreseeable future.
Many shelters wouldn’t be able to keep Persimmon, and we know she’s not right for every home situation. But she’s a good-natured, quirky girl, and we believe there’s someone out there who can recognize this and provide her with a loving, "forever" home. Could that be you?
