Meet Poppet

Do you believe in kismet? Do you have lots of spare time on your hands? Do you enjoy caring for others? If you answered yes to those three questions... then perhaps you have been led here. Poppet is such a special cat. She was rescued as a very small kitten from behind a furniture store. She had been severely injured somehow... her back broken and since healed. She ran so fast, despite her broken back. We were fortunate to capture her. She has undergone a great deal of rehabilitation and physical therapy. She has also been going for acupuncture and laser therapy for much of her time with us. She has had the love and devotion of several wonderful foster moms and she even has her own wheelchair. Poppet is a perfect little cuddle buddy. She is the cutest little "forever kitten" you ever care to meet. She is playful and brave. She is curious and smart. Determined and Unhindered. This kitten is a true inspiration and we dont know why she is not instafamous yet! Poppet really is amazing! We feel it is only fair to mention the daily care that she needs, so anyone that may feel interested in adopting her will know what kind of questions to ask :) Poppet is paraplegic, but has regained a great many of her faculties. She now eliminates her own bladder, though she sometimes need some help getting it completely empty (this helps prevent bladder infection). She will usually poop when you put a diaper on her... but you do have to do this periodically so you do not miss the opportunity. She will eventually poop even if a diaper isnt involved. She can climb just about anything and is far from disabled. She is growing up in foster care and that is sad. We all love her a great deal and she is OUR little celebrity... but we also want to see her finally bond with a mom (or dad) of her very own. A true caretaker. A forever companion. Someone that has the patience and capability to tend to her special needs. Though she may not be disabled... Poppet needs nursing care, even in its most modest form. She needs a caregiver ... she needs to be someone's little baby. If she does not have this level of care, her quality of life will decline. She deserves nothing less than a good quality of life. Her ideal mom (or dad) will understand this, as well. So we ask this kismet? Is Poppet looking for YOU?
