Meet Topaz. This perpetually grumpy face is actually quite sweet. It took her a while to feel comfortable in the shelter and start coming around for cuddles, but now she can’t get enough. She would like a home where she could settle into a routine and live out her retirement years cozily soaking up rays on a cat tree or cozy bed. Topaz tends to be a chatty girl and will happily tell you all about her day. She is super affectionate and isn’t afraid to jump up on your lap and take a snooze.
Topaz is a senior at 8 years old and has been diagnosed with Stage 2 kidney disease and hyperthyroidism. Both of these conditions are easily managed with diet and easily administered medication. Topaz will require regular vet checks to keep her in tip top shape.
If you think you can give Topaz the special senior years she deserves than please follow the link below to meet her.
