ANNABELLE, West Allis, Wisconsin
Photos and detail of Annabelle below.
This is a special case. Annabelle was declawed on all four paws. This is specified in A-Kerr’s policies as huge NO. In Annabelle’s case, as in many cat’s cases, when claws are removed the way the cat moves AND more importantly in the Bengal cat, the ability to maneuver paws like “tools” is lost. Bengals will turn their foot upside down to maneuver items, their paws are more than walking on. When claws are removed their behavior changes. Her owners turned her into a shelter… she now lives with Carolyn firstname.lastname@example.org
A note from Carolyn:
“Annabelle was born 6-14-2004. She has all her shots and was feluke-fiv tested because the last owners let her outside. She is 4 paw declawed. Her SBT # is 061404 and this can be looked up on line. I have a medical folder on her. She loves to be petted and will sit on your lap. Things have to be done on her terms.
I spoke to you when I got her. We discussed the fact she was adopted at 17 weeks and was 4 paw declawed somewhere along the way which is against the conditions of your contract. The people that surrendered her to us were not the original owners.
I do adoptions at Petsmart on Saturdays and she does not show well because she nips. Doesn’t mind the carrier or the cage. Just doesn’t like strange people to handle her.
I don’t have any problems with her in my home. She likes attention and gets along with my other cats and 3 little dogs.
I don’t have her listed right now because she had a marking problem which is why she was let outside with the people who surrendered her. They told us she didn’t like women. That’s not true. I am sure it was the marking problem. She’s not doing it now.
I feel she needs to go to someone who understands Bengals, not someone who wants a Bengal because it is different. I would appreciate any help in finding her a forever home. She deserves it after being passed around. I don’t have any problems fostering her until than.You can put my email and phone # in the listing as I have her. I will keep her as long as it takes to find her a great home.
