About Wasabi

Wasabi has had a tough life on the streets. Years of fending for himself and using his survival instincts helped him become who he is today. After many months in a foster home it is clear that Wasabi is an affectionate cat and enjoys being pet. He likes to lay his head on his person in quiet moments and is comfortable with cuddles. Although he is generally super chill and laid back, Wasabi needs you to understand and respect his boundaries. He would appreciate it if you did not put your face in his face, touch his feet, make loud noises or pick him up. He will communicate that you have crossed a boundary by looking at you from the corner of his eye, chattering, or moving a few feet away from you. Wasabi is a foodie and loves a good meal, he will even give a little squeak when he is hungry. If you want a companion who is grounded in positive and gentle energy, Wasabi is your guy.  Wasabi has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (“FIV”) which may lead to a weakening of the cat’s immune system. If well cared for, FIV+ cats can lead long, healthy, happy lives, and make wonderful family members. Wasabi has had damage to his nasal cavities and this causes him to sneeze regularly. Wasabi needs an experienced cat owner and also needs to be an only cat.  Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Our adoption application is on our website here:  www.thedancingcat.org/adopt

Frankie has a resilience and zeal for life that will capture your heart. She is so much more than her origin story but to understand where she is today, we have to acknowledge how far she has come. Frankie was shot with a pellet gun and some of the pellet fragments were lodged into her spine. Despite great efforts and surgery, Frankie remains semi-paralyzed in her back legs. She is undergoing daily physical therapy to stimulate her muscles, which she enjoys and cooperates with, especially if treats are involved.  Despite her therapy, it is likely she will never walk normally again. This does not slow Frankie down in the least! Wind up a toy and watch Frankie go go go! She zips around with the zoomies like any cat, and chases toys and shadows like a pro. Frankie likes to join her foster Mom on the couch or climb up into her cat tree. Nothing stops this adventurer! Except maybe bedtime with her person, she loves to share the bed or couch.    Caring for Frankie requires some experience with cats. She will need to continue her low-level physical therapy routine. Frankie can't totally control when she pees or poops. To prevent leakage and to avoid clean-up, her bladder is expressed three times a day. Any potential adopter will need to understand, learn and commit to properly caring for Frankie's needs while understanding they may change in the future. Frankie eats out of a slow feeder to help keep her weight at a healthy level.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
