Rescue ID: C090002
Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)

Please Note: This animal is listed as a courtesy to another organization. Please be sure to contact the foster/caretaker for more information about her.

Species: Cat
Breed: Domestic Short Hair – orange / Mixed (short coat)
Sex: Female (spayed)
General Potential Size: Small
Current Age: 5 Months 29 Days (best estimate)
Good with People: Very Friendly
Good for Inexperienced Caregivers: No

Special Needs: She had been completely paralyzed & now runs & plays with just a little sway but she is incontinent of bowel & bladder. It is manageable & hopefully she will continue to improve & regain some or all of these functions


We named her Iceey because when she was rescued at about 6 wks old, her eyes were a Siamese blue. Now her eyes are golden but Iceey stuck. A dog or something injured her & we were afraid she wouldn’t survive. She had no movement or feeling in her backend & tail. She swam for therapy to strengthen her back & back legs & eventually crawled & relearned how to walk. Now she is just like any other kitten her age.
I’ve been able to put her on a schedule for expressing the urine & feces about 4 times a day & at night she wears a diaper. She is very social & wants to be with us 24/7. She loves to be held & cuddled. She travels well & doesn’t mind if strangers hold or pet her. She goes to our adoptions on the weekends & always has a crowd around her. She does well with other kittens or small dogs ( after a getting to know you period ) & loves to play soccer. She can open sliding patio doors, pocket doors, cabinets & drawers with just a little figuring out. She is such a sweet playful kitten & we love her dearly. She has had all of her kitten & rabies vaccines, is microchipped & has been spayed. Her tail was amputated with the spaying for her health & safety, the feeling never returned to most of her tail. Thank you for helping us find her a forever home.
If you are interested in Iceey contact us and we will put you in touch with the foster:)
If you want a kitty who really really needs you – please consider Iceey.
