3 year old • Female
Octavia is a very petite solid black kitty. She has beautiful green eyes, and generally small features. Her coat is short, though her tail is a little fluffier than most DSH cats. She's a real cutie pie.
Octavia is a spry young adult kitty with a real spunk for life! She’s very playful, very friendly with humans, and completely in love with her foster brother Earl. They have bonded over their early life traumas and have very bright futures ahead of them – hopefully together forever! Octavia likes being held and settles well on her foster mom's lap when she's done playing and in the mood for snuggles and rest. She very much likes to carry kitty toys (mice, balls, what have you) around in her mouth while playing, and like kick toys, too. She's got all the energy you'd expect a young cat to have.
Octavia was a stray pulled from a county shelter because she needed special medical attention.
Octavia is healing from flank spay surgery which was necessary because of a severe case of mammary hyperplasia. When she arrived at IAR her mammary glands were all very swollen and she had a hard time getting comfortable. Luckily, shortly after she was spayed the inflammation and fluid began to clear very quickly, and she’s about 80% healed and feels 100% better. She's expected to make a full recovery and this should not be a recurring issue now that she's spayed. She is otherwise healthy and up to date on shots.
