Who is this kitty with the beautiful eyes? This is Penny!
Penny is a sweet but somewhat shy girl. When she arrived in the shelter, Penny had severe matting and had to have most of her coat shaved. She is currently overweight so her new family will have to be very aware of her diet and keep her on track to get to a healthier weight. When Penny’s coat begins to grow back it will be very important to assist her with grooming as her weight makes it difficult for her to do it herself although she is definitely doing more and more herself!
Penny enjoys affection and would prefer a quiet home with no kids. Changes can be overwhelming for some cats so she would enjoy a safe spot where she can curl up when she is feeling stressed or overwhelmed in her new surroundings.
This sweet girl is currently in foster and is definitely becoming more active. She loves to jump on the sofa and perch up top and will also follow her foster mom up and down the hallway and will sleep on the bed with them. She is losing weight slowly but steadily (exactly what we want to see!) and can even make her way up the cat tree now and we could not be more proud of her!
Penny is looking for a forever family that will open up their hearts and homes to an older kitty with special needs. She has so much love and affection to share! Could she be the one for you?
