Diana

DianaDiana - Black and White, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female

SPECIAL NEEDS CATS LIKE DIANA, 1 yr 3 mo, NEED THE SPECIAL LOVE YOU CAN GIVE HER!!! You wouldn’t know it from how astoundingly friendly and bubbly she is, but Diana came to Furry Friends very recently from a horrendous hoarding situation where she and her many brothers and sisters (and cousins, and extended family...) all lived in extremely poor conditions. Besides the home being filthy with feces and waste stacked high towards the ceiling, there was clearly not enough food or care to go around for anybody. Many of Diana's brothers and sisters have suffered dearly with ongoing health issues due to their lives of neglect, but somehow Diana managed to come out of their ordeal mostly unscathed besides a severely undernourished body and lots of fleas. Despite where she came from, Diana is overjoyed to meet all new people who come her way, and she greets everyone with open arms and a HUGE purr! How on earth such a small cat could hold so much love within herself is beyond us, but Diana was just full of surprises.... And kittens! Before Diana was even able to go to the vets to be examined the day after she arrived, she decided to deliver an unexpected litter of kittens overnight all on her own, and she was VERY proud of herself come the morning when our volunteers discovered her little secret. Diana is such a spectacularly doting mother that she even welcomed a kitten from another litter who’s mama just wasn’t well enough to feed them with no hesitation at all! At just past one year old, Diana is practically a baby herself but she did such a great job of taking care of her little family with the help of her foster family. Nowadays Diana's babies are big enough to not need their mama around anymore, and honestly Diana is happy to have the break - Four little rascals with claws and too much energy can really tire a kitty out! She has taken her newfound retirement in stride and has dedicated herself to sleeping lots, enjoying the tastiest of food, and even packing on enough chub to have an adorably round belly for everyone to pet. Diana enjoys human company very much, and she will twirl with excitement when she sees you coming up to her. Any kind of love and petting is good if you ask her, and sometimes Diana will even roll over to kick and nibble at your hand if you get her excited enough to play!
