Neha is an adventurous, playful young adult. Her high energy play might be better suited to cats or dogs her own age, or younger cat. She likes to go exploring and has been known to slip through the door to the garage or outside if she can, so her new family will need to be vigilant! She is affectionate and purrs when held, but cuddle time cuts into her play and exploring time, so she doesn’t want to do it for long. Neha sometimes needs to be redirected to appropriate play outlets when she signals her impatience with being held by arm nibbling. Neha likes to sleep in the bed with her foster mom, but doesn’t always like to share the bed with other cats. Her favorite toy is a plastic ball that no longer jingles. She loves to bat it around and pick it up in her mouth and carry it around with her. She also loves to play “hide the dishrag”, which is entertainment for both her and her human. Neha is one of the cats and kittens that came to us from a small rural rescue.
Neha has a small hole in her heart (ventricular septal defect) and a heart murmur. She has seen a cardiologist vet three times since November 3, 2017 (last visit was and echo was on 5/29/2019) and her echocardiograms show that her condition has not progressed. At this time, no medication or intervention is needed but her heart should be periodically checked. Her forever family will need to be diligent and watch for abnormal breathing.
Fully vetted: tested for FeLV/FIV (negative unless otherwise noted); treated for intestinal parasites, fleas, and ear mites; FVRCP+FeLV vaccinated (initial vaccination and booster); and rabies vaccinated; spayed/neutered; microchipped with Home Again microchips with rescue paid registration.
