After only a few months old, Penny was adopted by a family that fell in love with her, as she was the “runt” of the litter. She had a health scare of vomiting and being lethargic so they brought her to the vet. There she was severely dehydrated and diagnosed with a rare electrolyte disorder preventing her from drinking water on her own. They placed an esophageal feeding tube to help aid her water intake. Heartbroken, the family felt that they weren’t able to continue with her high care needs, and decided to rehome her and she was welcomed to the Sanctuary.
Penny is still her rambunctious adorable self, and now has the whole living room overnight to roam in. She is such an easy going cat that she doesn’t mind who her roommates are, and staff has been testing the waters with leaving Penny, Wallace and Totti out overnight and so far all has been well! One of her new favorite napping spots is inside a small cloth cat tube, which she thinks we haven’t discovered yet but we have!
