Let me introduce you to the darling of the stray cat jail [View all]

This is Tallulah. We've had her for several weeks since she returned from foster care at around 9 weeks old and just over 2 pounds. She was spayed at that time. The reason we still have her is that, to put it delicately, she has digestive problems. She's currently on Hill's Science Diet I/D and doing better, but still not perfectly enough to suit our animal care manager. In my opinion, she may have celiac disease rather than IBS...cats apparently do get it, though it's rare...and would need grain-free food for the rest of her life, which could be done. but would be more expensive. A potential adopter already rejected her because of her digestive troubles and the diet she's currently on ("too expensive and too much trouble".

Tallulah is the sweetest, most adorable kitten I've met in a long time. Of course, I have a preference for torties, but she is exceptional. She's tiny, energetic, and a complete love bug. She's in the top front kennel by the door, and whenever that door opens, she runs to the front of her kennel, hoping for attention, which she always gets. When that kennel door is opened, she'll crawl into your arms for a snuggle and purr her little heart out. But she's content to play with her toys, too, and doesn't scream for attention the way some do. I'd take her home in a hot minute if only I could have an indoor cat. Expenses be damned! Yesterday I finally got her to sit still for a portrait. Sorry it's a bit dark though.
