Thank you. I'm certain I will be talking to you with your knowledge of persians. To show you how much I know I wasn't even sure she was one. I just thought she looked so sweet and in a small way reminded me of Boo. The field worker for the humane society called me last evening to let me know that he had been to Boo's previous owner's house asking for info about their breeding practices and contacts of others who bought a cat from them. I told him I was trying to adopt this cat named Snowball and it was him who told me definitively that she is a persian. He in fact was the one who rescued her from this guy in town. He said he had wondered where she wound up and was very happy to hear she was coming to us. Snowball is kind of a poster child for neglected cats around here.

I have been trying to adopt this adorable little rescued cat, persian, for a couple weeks now. I have missed BooBoo so much and have been through such emotional garbage with the previous owners of him that I just need another cat to give a good life to. This cat was rescued from a horrible person who had a pet shop in town. The humane society and SPCA went in and seized his animals and the City took his business licence away. This cat, (Snowball) was so sick, eyes swollen shut from infection, URI and it has taken the foster woman a month to get her well. She got final approval from the vet to be let go, has got her shots updated and that's that. She had been disgnosed with herpes. I know, I'm getting myself into another potential situation here, but at least I know what I have to deal with if an outbreak occurs. The vet was going to have her spayed before releasing her but I convinced him that I would do it in the near future once she has settled down in her new home. I wish I had never had BooBoo neutered so quickly after getting him. I truly believe it triggered his rapid downfall. Anyway, I now have the foster mom's personal email and we are going to start the process of her coming to me. I am just so happy to be able to look after another little lost soul.
