Our Community Room has become significantly noisier in recent weeks, and Zoey is the reason for that. This young lady does not hesitate to make her wishes known. She’s a funny little girl of no great size (since she was born at the end of May of 2014, she probably still has some growing to do, but we don’t think she’ll ever be that large). Her coat is a medium grey with some darker striping, especially on her tail, and her eyes look green or amber, according to the light.
When Zoey came to Tabby’s Place, she had a head tilt and facial paralysis. This was due to an inner-ear polyp. While the polyp has been removed, her head still tilts to the left. Her facial paralysis has improved somewhat, but it’s still partial on the left side. She may regain full function of her facial muscles, but this is less likely as time goes by. Zoey requires a lubricant in her left eye, as she cannot blink to distribute moisture there properly.
Zoey can be a bit flighty when she first sees you, but start petting her or give her a treat, and you instantly become her "BFF". She will follow you around the room or settle in a chair near you, squeaking repeatedly until she gets a "skritch" on one side of her neck, or another treat, or some other kind of attention. She’s very affectionate—and equally demanding! For a person or a family with a lot of love to give, or for someone who has a good amount of time to offer to a companion cat, this little girl would be ideal.
