Animal Friends Presents: Eponine!

Check back every week for more adorable, adoptable animals from Animal Friends!

This adorable, friendly cat came to us after being found as a stray with one surviving kitten. 

At only age two, she was discovered to be in the early stages of kidney failure. She is in a stable condition and needs a special diet and fluids administered under her skin three times a week. Eponine cooperates with this, and Animal Friends will help, too, by providing the food at cost and training her new family on the fluid regimen, which is easy to learn.

Eponine doesn’t know she has a health problem, and certainly doesn’t show it. She’s a young, lively cat who loves attention and thrives on head scratches. She’s an avid bird-watcher and dust bunny chaser. She would love to be the only pet and soak up all the love!

This young lady is a staff and volunteer favorite, and she’s well-loved and cared for at Animal Friends. But there’s nothing like a home for the holidays, and Eponine certainly doesn’t deserve to live out her life in a shelter.

If you think you can give this lovely cat a loving home despite her special needs – or perhaps because of them – please contact Animal Friends or stop by to visit.

Someone believes in Eponine so much that they have sponsored her adoption. She truly is priceless!
