Rescued as a tiny baby from the parking lot of a Walmart in La Palma, Flora is a sweet, goofy, outgoing and extremely good natured girl who gets along with everyone she meets – cats, dogs, people, cryptids, you name it. She had a somewhat rough kittenhood because she developed a bad case of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), which affected her nervous system and caused her to lose the use of her back legs. Thankfully, Kitten Rescue to treat it aggressively and she regained all of her motor function in a couple weeks, and after twelve weeks of treatment was completely cured of the disease. The only lingering sign is that she can get a little twitchy if you scratch her lower back.
FIP, of course, is a very dangerous disease and up until recently when a cure was discovered, it was fatal in 100% of cases. Perhaps this potential brush with death has done something to her, or maybe this is just how she is, but Flora does have a bit of an eating disorder. She currently weighs over sixteen pounds and it would most certainly behoove her to go on a caloric restrictive diet in order to slim down a bit. This does mean that she wouldn’t be an ideal adoptee to a home where food dishes were left out all the time.
Other than being a bit tubby, Flora is a wonderful cat and will make someone a magnificent companion.
