Our latest Critical Care Case…Lizzy!
“My names is Lizzie! I was very sick and skinny, and had a hard time finding my litter box. I am also blind. Since I have been at WAG, I received multiple blood tests and have been diagnosed as diabetic. Now that I have been receiving regular insulin shots, I have been feeling much better! My appetite has returned and I love the saucy meat chunks of my new specialty diet so much, I have started putting on weight! Though I am still permanently blind, I can now navigate my way around pretty well, and I never miss my litter box. My favourite place to hang out is under a desk on top of a power cord and wires. When my foster mom tried to keep me out of there for safety, I was too smart for her, found a back route ,and squeezed myself in!
I currently am living with a K9 foster sister; a small dog, who generally does not bother me at all. If she does get too close, I give her a little hiss!
I love cuddles and scratches, and though my meow is squeaky, I love to have the occasional chat. I will greet you every morning with my big eyes and will purr like crazy when happy. One of my other favourite things to do is keep myself looking gorgeous! I spend lots of time happily grooming, followed by well deserved naps. I also love cat nip toys and like to sleep with them in my beds.
I am looking for a quiet family that will look after me in my golden years. I am not comfortable with stairs due to my blindness, but am easily kept in restricted areas by low level barriers, as I also do not jump over anything. I am very easy going, sweet, and beautiful, and besides my diabetes, I am a very laid back and low maintenance girl.”
