Meet brave, little Sheba!
With her beautiful, blue cream coat this sociable tortie is sure to charm all she meets! Sadly, Sheba has early kidney failure and will need regular vet appointments for the rest of her life (though with how energetic she is, you’d never know!). She will require a prescription diet and regular bloodwork to monitor her kidney function, so it’s important that her forever home be able to support that. Sheba would more than likely appreciate being the only pet in the home (to receive all the love possible, of course!), and is quite well-behaved around children.
While it’s sad for her to experience kidney failure at such a young age, Sheba hasn’t let that stop her one bit! She is an incredibly affectionate girl who adores being pet and dotted on. At the end of the day, this is a cat whose time with you will leave a mark on your heart. We hope she can be a ray of sunshine in someone’s life!
