Chi Chi's striking leonine appearance is enhanced by her deep orange eyes and her recent shaving (to remove knots).
She is an independent, gentle Persian cat awaiting an adult-only home where she would get all of the attention. We believe she will do best as the only feline, though she may tolerate another quiet-natured and respectful cat too.
Chi Chi is spayed, approximately 12 years of age, and front-feet declawed (done previously). Unfortunately, declawed cats seem to often get more nippy, and Chi Chi fits that pattern with her play-bites when she is overstimulated. (Note: This is why we do not like to have declawed cats get adopted into homes with toddlers or young children.)
She needed us when the senior home she was in previously had to change living arrangements.
Please plan on weekly brushing so that Chi Chi never again develops painful knots and tangles. Persian cat knowledge and/or experience is preferred for her adoption. Mention her name when you visit Nevada SPCA's free-roaming Cat Condo playrooms so that we can introduce you to her.
Very special thanks to the good people at Pet'ographique for this sensational portrait of Chi Chi to help her get adopted.
