This lovely lady is Pumpkin Spice. She is a queen-of-the-castle, majestic 4 year old female who will steal your heart the moment you meet her. We seriously think she has feline super powers in play.

Are you that particular type of cat person who absolutely thrives on taking on and saving cats that “need it the most”? Then keep on reading, this is the feline for you. Pumpkin is not typical and needs a companion who will accept her for how she is, quirks and all.

Pumpkin suffers from anxiety. Not unusual in this day and age for humans and animals, and thankfully, it’s now something that we talk about openly. Our amazing cat team has been working with her for a few months now and came to the realization that she does amazingly well on a specific type of medication. Her true self comes alive and is lovely when she is properly balanced. There’s a possibility that she could be weaned off slowly but we want her person to be prepared that she may need to stay on it for all nine of her lives.

Pumpkin is such a smart gal and has been learning behaviors through clicker training and targeting. She can be affectionate on her own terms and for that reason a home with adults or a family with teens. She would most likely do best as the only pet but we are open to seeing if she may be a match if you have other pets.

We truly believe there is someone for everyone and that includes our perfectly imperfect Pumpkin Spice. We celebrate uniqueness and individuality and know that there’s someone out there that will appreciate her all she is too.

Pumpkin Spice is in our “Take a Chance on Me” program so her adoption fee has been waived.
