Pearlie

I was born outside on a rainy night in Southern California. My siblings and I were all found lying in a wet ditch, when we were scooped up by a Kitten Rescue volunteer. We were all a very sick with upper respiratory infections and pneumonia. As a result, I have chronic sniffles. I had to have one of my eyes removed when I was only a few months old due to a massive infection. Then, a few days later, I had an onset of neurological symptoms, which has improved slightly over time. This makes me a little wobbly and unable to jump, but if you have a crinkle ball, watch out! If you want to see how fast a gazelle can run, just toss the crinkle ball and I’ll go dashing through the room to get it — I am that fast! I was bottle fed and received lots of TLC as a baby, which must be why I adore people and always want to be right by your side. My sister Belle and I like to help the caretakers clean and scoop the boxes. I’m not sure they consider it helpful, but we feel like we are earning our keep!
