PREFERENCE IS GIVEN TO PRESENT OR PAST PERSIAN OWNERS. To meet Diana, please fill out our application at: http://ajsbestfriends.org/all-pets/questionnaire/ Diana is a young spayed female Calico Exotic Shorthair. She almost always sits next to me the minute I sit down. She didn't like to be combed at first, but patience, consistency and a treat afterward is making the groom session more tolerable. She has very small nostrils, they are almost little pin holes, so she will need to have the nares surgery to widen the nostrils so that she can breathe better. Having this surgery will extend her life by several years. Sometimes these cats with pushed in faces have nasal passages are blocked or almost blocked. They suffer so much with trying to breathe. If you have ever had the wind knocked out of you, you can better understand the panic they go thru when they struggle to breathe. Diana needs a calm environment. NO DOGS - NO CHILDREN UNDER 7yrs of age. You must be able to afford the nares surgery. WE DO NOT SHIP - NO HOLDS - NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS.
