Description: 2014 PURRsche – Courage changes everything
Purrsche is the most amazing cat. She and her 6 beautiful kittens, Pawserati, Purrcedes, Lampurrghini, Alfur Romeo, Supurru and Pawsda were scheduled to be euthanized at a Yuma high kill shelter when Saving One Life rescued them. She and the kittens were starving to death when they arrived and poor Purrsche, as hard as she tried, was unable to provide enough nourishment and too ill to nurse her 6 babies. We immediately rushed her and the kittens to the vet and got them on appropriate medication, in the meantime their foster mom had to take over hand feeding the kittens for a few days. Purrsche was always there to wake her exactly every two hours to make sure her babies were fed, until one night she didn’t and the foster mom in a panic woke on her own and looked over the bed to find Purrsche nursing her babies.
It has been a long road for poor Purrsche, one filled with many bumps, an emergency surgery where they had to remove a section of her colon due to an obstruction which almost killed her and must have been so painful, yet not once did she ever strike out or show any aggression.
Purrsche is still a very young cat. She is extremely playful, loves to run through fabric tunnels, bat balls and mice around the house, and perch herself by a window to take in the world that is finally kind to her. She is loving, loves to be loved and will purr up a storm, she will greet you at the door, is friendly to strangers, her fur is medium length but does not mat, she enjoys being brushed, she does very little shedding, will let you trim her nails, and if she needs medication, no problem…she is a pro!
If any cat truly deserves a loving , safe forever home it is this angel! Purrsche is the purest expression love – there is no substitute.
