    She looks just like my little muse! How is she mentally handicapped? She has a fearful look in her eyes.

  • She was found wet and weak with hunger and cold in a field only a few weeks old. By a miracle she kept herself alive for a week without food. Just skin over bones she was – pneumonia and lots of ear mites. She went into a foster home and came to me at 12 weeks and spent the first month under my bed. She only came out for food and potty. It helped a bit when I got the twins a month later. The male cat has been very fond of her and she feels safe with him, but the two girls fight a lot. She will never get to function as a normal cat. She is very shy. I can’t pick her up and she does not jump up on my lap. She should have been put down when they found her, but I understand her over-eating and general anxiety. She came to a good home I think. You do love your babies – no matter what, right?

    Her personality sounds similar to my cat’s issues. She was dumped at five or six weeks and fed herself eating insects which fell from a security light outside my home. I know because I watched her doing this before I could finally coax her with tuna to trust me. She is very untrusting to this day of anyone but me, very fearful of everything. Instead of overeating she goes on hunger strikes and has to be coaxed to eat on occasion. She is otherwise healthy and playful, just needs her space. Good for you for adopting your little girl. The look in her eyes is one I see in my cat’s eyes quite often. You have to love them for their strength and will to survive against great odds.

  • Well, I guess they have different ways to cope – just like humans.
    I hear you – she is very special to me and very close to my heart.
