The pet sponsored was Dorothy. “Hello there! My name is Dorothy and I can’t wait to find a forever family who will appreciate me for the beautiful, quirky girl that I am. My eyes are a little extra close together, giving me an adorable look, as well as perhaps some blurry vision. I love quiet homes and taking the time to develop rich relationships.

“As Kelli, the SPCA’s Animal Team Leader, explains, ‘We originally thought Dorothy was a very old girl because of the shape she was in at intake and the fact that she seems to be unable to see well. Over her time here, she has started grooming herself, and her coat is losing the old, unhealthy-cat look and coming in soft and thick. She does have issues with her vision; how much vision she has is not determined. She appears to see shapes and objects coming towards her, but struggles with depth perception and focusing on an object near her. She wants attention at times, but needs her space at other times. Most of these things we believe are related to the vision issue and the fact that she had to try to survive on the street for an undetermined amount of time. She has really thrived in a foster home and we are looking forward to her landing her forever home.’

“I desire to be the only cat in my new home, due to my uncertainty about fast-moving objects coming near me. I am currently in a foster home, so if interested, please contact the SPCA.” Meet Dorothy here.
