Special Care: Declawed Gorgeous special needs cat seeks experienced cat person. Mirage is a stunning long haired tortie that was rescued by Purr Partners Feline Rescue from a high kill shelter before she was going to be euthanized. We have no idea about her history or how she wound up there. We do know she was de-clawed on her front feet. When she went to her foster home, it became apparent why she may have been surrendered to the shelter. Mirage is a biter. This is not uncommon in de-clawed cats for many reasons. First and foremost, this is a painful procedure that can have long lasting psychological effects. Our Vet thinks that Mirage may have been taught to play rough when she was a kitten. We do not believe she deserves to die because she developed behavioral problems after her humans did not do right by her. She loves and solicits attention, and her behavior has improved significantly over the past several months. She likes to chase and play with toys. She rolls over and over with excitement when her foster mom walks in. She has responded well to play therapy and is food motivated. The ideal home for Mirage is someone who understands cat behavior and is willing to continue working with her. She would like a quiet home preferably with no other pets. We can't predict what may trigger her so would not want her to be in a home with children. We would love to see Mirage in a real home.
