MEET OUR featured pet - maya
Meet Maya! This beautiful, sweet girl is looking for a forever home! Maya came to us as a "blind senior" but one stop at the vet, we found out Maya isn't a senior at all - she is only 1-2 yrs old! But she was blind - due to juvenile cataracts most likely caused by an infection in utero. Maya had cataract surgery in both eyes in January 2021 and after very careful recovery of crate rest, the dreaded cone and LOTS of drops multiple times a day, she can SEE!!! Watching her world open up has been such an amazing journey! Thru it all, Maya has been so incredibly sweet and compliant. She is VERY friendly and purrs all the time. She is small (just 8 lbs) and likes being carried and pets and cuddling. She has lived in a home with multiple dogs and is not bothered by them at all - although she does try to play with them by bopping them on the nose! She may need some work on her play manners! She is very playful and loves all sorts of toys and tunnels. Maya is extremely laid back for a cat, she doesn't mind her carrier or going to the vet and is not started easily. Due to her surgery, Maya will need daily drops (once a day) for life. She will also require visits to an animal eye specialist twice a year for a recheck - the risk of complication is very low but because she has corneal implants, it is important to keep an eye on them since, unlike humans, she won't be able to communicate if there is a change.
