Description: Iris was found at a feral colony, she came running up to the feeder and it was obvious she is new and tame. She is OK being held and there was a microchip but the previous owner never returned our calls.
People who dump indoor cats on the street ... well, those kitties are freaked out by the outdoors, so it's not easy to catch them most of the time. This gal was confident enough to approach a strange human on the street. Lucky for her, she approached the right one!
Her microchip showed she was adopted from SPCA as a kitten. Due to SPCA being full from the panhandle rescues, they could not take her back immediately.
The SPCA agreed to transfer her to PAWS because it seemed she was tossed from a car into the woods, or mistreated, and needs a chiropractic treatment. Her sensitivity on her lower back is resolved and she is loving life!
Meanwhile Iris showed signs of a urinary infection so we took her to the vet. To rule out everything we did a Urinalysis (negative) and an xray to check for stones. The only finding was a pellet lodged in her right hind thigh muscle. The vet determined urination was stress-related. So we keep her on a urinary food because it is formulated to relax a stressed out bladder and kitty, and this helps her cope while in foster care. So, Iris would definitely prefer a home as the "queen" kitty. (Then she won't need the special food anymore.)
Iris is outgoing, fine with dogs, kids... just don't touch her feet or her tummy! She gets mad and leaves the area LOL.
