Marmalade (1-1.5 years 8.1.20) is a short-haired female orange tuxedo. Spay and Stay got a call from a caretaker in a Beach Park trailer park where Marm and her 3 kittens were found under a porch. When Marm was being spayed she was found to have an awful hole in the front of her head, possibly caused by a BB at close range or her running into a very sharp object. It took four surgeries and a skin graft to properly close it. She if FIV positive but her 3 kittens were not. FIV is transmitted between cats by deep bites or scratches. Marm is not a bite risk to other cats and gets along well with the other 3 cats in the foster home. She loves attention and stretching out on a rug. She plays with toys. We are not sure how good her sight as a result of the head trauma. She can see but startles if you are standing over her and move too fast. There is a young dog in her home and she has been very calm in her interactions with it. She likes both men and women but acts especially cute for her foster dad.
