-THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT THE VET CLINIC BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS–
This is Emma, a beautiful 13 year old friend looking for a new home. Her family loves her dearly, it will break their hearts to see her go, but one of them has developed a severe allergy to cat hair. Emma has a common & manageable older cat condition called hyperthyroidism, but they love her so much they’ve offered to pay for her cure so we can find her new home! There are numerous treatment options to fit different lifestyles, budgets and the cats themselves.
Her family says she is intelligent and good-natured (we completely agree!), inquisitive, and playful 🙂
Her interests include warming laps at night, self-grooming to keep up her appearance, and would do best in a home where she can find privacy away from other pets and children.
A permanent cure for hyperthyroidism is called Iodine 131, wherein a special facility will give her a single pill targeting the overactive part of the thyroid gland. It’s actually the same treatment that many people receive for the same condition. Fortunately, we have several hospitals in Portland offering Iodine 131 treatment. The cost is generally about $1000 and is very safe. The best part is that, in her future, no daily meds would be needed – it truly is a cure! Emma is a great candidate for this treatment. If you wish to adopt her, we can give you more info about meeting her, it is a very simple process
