She’s suuuuuuch a “Karen”!
Karen was brought in as a stray and needed some TLC from the vet and shelter staff. She is now thriving in our care and cannot wait to find that special retirement home to call hers fur-ever! Karen does have a ‘tortie’ attitude, she is full of sugar and spice. That doesn’t stop her from being so lovable! For being a senior, this girl goes crazy for catnip. Give her a catnip toy or a wand toy to chase, and Karen’s kitten side comes out. She quickly becomes a purr machine! Karen is on a specialized diet to help her skin stay nice and not itchy. She has done so well on it and it has made her such a happier cat. Karen will do best in a quiet, mature home setting as the only animal, with a cat savvy person to love her. We know this girl is patiently waiting to be swept off her toe beans and into her fur-ever home ♥
