Truffle on Tuesday
We always enjoy visiting our pal Truffle, but she's been at PAWS for way too long. We first posted about her in January of 2009, so you can do the math. Like we said, she's been waiting (patiently) for way too long.
Truffle isn't exactly a lapcat, but she IS affectionate. All of the volunteers and staff have to be careful not to trip as she weaves happily in and out of our legs. She also enjoys being pet on the head and behind her ears, but will let you know when she's had enough. Her coloring and markings are strikingly unique, and her fur is extra downy soft. And she enjoys sunpuddles and playing!
We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Truffle does have a condition called stomatitis - inflammation in her gums that flares up every so often. But she hasn't been on medication for a while, and is doing very well. She is also on a wet food only diet (but that's a good thing, as it helps her maintain her girlish figure ... MOL). Truffle is 10 years old, up to date on vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She's also microchipped.
Won't you please give Truffle the happily ever after she's been waiting for? And even if you can't, perhaps you can help us find her a forever home by sharing her story on Facebook, Twitter and/or other social media? Thanks (from Truffle and all of her pals)!
