Meet Sara! She’s a loving 8-year-old rescue cat in Nashville, Tennessee.
Life hasn’t been fair to poor Sara, but she’s still hoping someone will open their heart and give her a chance.
Sara’s foster mom, Madeline Fitzpatrick, tells us all about sweet Sara in the story below.
A Shocking Discovery
Sara was found on the streets amongst a colony of feral kitties.
However, one look at Sara confirmed she was not feral.
Sara is a Persian cat, an expensive exotic cat sold by breeders.
How did this fancy pants Persian cat find herself in a feral colony?
The Road to Recovery
Her past remains a mystery, but it’s very likely she was either abandoned or lost.
If she was lost, no one has stepped up to claim her.
Sara was found in horrible condition and required extensive veterinary care.
She had a severe case of pancreatitis and a bowel obstruction that required surgery.
To make matters worse, she had an ear mite infection so bad that she is now partially deaf.
Poor Sara’s long hair was so severely matted that she had to be completely shaved.
However, there was still hope for Sara.
With the help of several fosters and a very talented veterinarian, this sweet girl is as good as new.
Her recovery took several months, but she took it like a champ!
Sara, whose full name is Dr. Sara DVM, was named after the veterinarian who worked tirelessly at no cost to save her life.
What is Sara’s personality like?
Sara has shown me that despite what terrible circumstances life throws at you, you can still be kind.
She has so much resilience and strength.
I am so proud of her for how far she has come!
Sarah loves attention and is extremely affectionate.
She’s always head butting our arms and legs politely asking to be pet.
Sara is a big fan of wet food, wand toys, her catnip floppy fish, and binging cat TV.
She loves to snooze, especially next to her foster mommy.
Unfortunately, despite how much she loves humans, she does not feel the same way about other kitties.
She even hisses when she sees herself in the mirror or when I try to take a selfie with her!
Because of this, it’d be best for Sara to be adopted by someone as an only child.
Because Sara was found as a stray cat, her ear was tipped.
This doesn’t make Sara any less beautiful.
Ear tipped kitties need love too!
Sara is fully vaccinated, spayed, and ready to be adopted!
Despite how much we adore Sara and love having her in our home, she really wants to find her forever family.
All she wants is to curl up in a cozy home with a family she can call her own.
However, she hasn’t received any adoption applications.
I don’t understand why no one seems to want her.
After all she’s been through, this sweet girl deserves to live happily ever after in a loving home.
Sara is still in foster care in Nashville, TN and up for adoption through Fluff Nashville.
