Flossy arrived at the Rescue after living as a stray for quite a long period of time. Flossy’s mouth was in a horrendous state when she first arrived. It was obvious that this poor girl had been in a lot of pain, for a long time, due to her condition being left untreated. It took weeks of antibiotic and steroid injections to treat the infection and she underwent a dental to remove eight teeth. Flossy had tests to determine the reason why she had such sores in her mouth and the results came back positive for Feline Calicivirus (FCV)
Despite all she has been through, Flossy has always been the friendliest, sweetest and gentlest girl. She loves nothing more than affection and gives you so much love back in return. She is all you could want in a companion, or family pet.
Flossy is now living with the resident cats (as they have already been exposed to the FCV virus) so she has more room to live freely, as it is likely that she is going to be with us over a long period of time. She loves sleeping on top of her favourite scratch post, exploring and being the first in the food queue when she comes to watch you dish up at mealtime. We give her all the love and attention we can, in the small amount of time we are with her, but she craves attention and deserves much more.
Flossy is very well in herself at present and even though it is a long-term virus, it can be managed and she can live a happy life.
Flossy could live with sensible children, but because of her FCV, she is looking for a home as an indoor cat. She would need to be the only cat in the home, unless there is another cat in the home that has also been diagnosed with FCV. Flossy might need treatment for her FCV at a later date, but this is not always the case (we can discuss her condition and treatment at time of enquiries.)
