Meet Priscilla aka Miss Priss aka Prissy. This beautiful girl just wandered up to one of our volunteer's houses. She is sweet and cuddly and we could not put a long haired beauty queen back out on the streets. She was covered in mats and we had a junior groomer give her the spa treatment. It was not purrfect and that junior groomer may want to pick another career. We then took Priscilla to a professional groomer and she has blossomed back into the beauty queen she once was. However, even shaved her beauty still shines through. She is a small kitty, about 8 pounds but when her fur is fully grown she looks about 20 pounds. She is a petite girl who is shy at first but loves pets and scratches behind the ears and she likes to cuddle too. In her free time she can be found on the top rung of the cat tree or in a sun spot or curled up on the quilt in bed. Other activities include stretching, grooming and sleeping. She also enjoys curling up on a warm lap.
Prissy does have a mild case of asthma and does require medication twice a week. The medication is inexpensive and it works like a charm.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This cat's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
