Hi there, I'm Lyla
I am a spayed female, black Domestic Shorthair. Lyla is a special kitten looking for a special family! She has been in foster care where she has received extensive treatment for repeat upper respiratory infections along with inflammation of the eyes. Based on these concerns, we suspect that she has Feline Herpes Virus (FHV). This virus is present for life and can lead to flare ups (sneezing, congestion, nasal or eye discharge). Flare ups are most commonly seen during stressful times (moves, changes in the household, new pets/people, etc). A large number of cats have FHV and many do well lifelong. Some do have more common flare ups than others. The best thing you can provide to help with FHV is a low stress environment. Additionally, she has scarring on her left eye that is likely permanent. She still appears to be able to see out of this eye and it is not infected or painful at this time. Her foster family says this about Lyla: Tiny but mighty is the only way to describe Lyla. She was the smallest of her litter, barely half the size of her siblings, but she never let that get in her way! She can run and wrestle with the best of them. When she first entered our home, she was super sick with upper respiratory and bad eye infections. Despite those hurdles, she has proven to be a tough little warrior who loves to cuddle with humans or her siblings when it's time to take a rest. She is an outgoing girl who has quite the affectionate side. Currently lives with dogs (small and large) and cats in her foster home. Due to restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to visit one another prior to adoption. It's a lot of stress on Lyla to be transported back and forth to the shelter for visits, which makes her more susceptible to having a flare-up. We want her to be healthy for your new life together! Please contact Lyla's foster parents, Allison & Joshua, at [email protected] to inquire about Lyla or to proceed with adoption. Please allow up to 24 hours for Allison & Joshua to respond.
We do our best to update our adoptable pet listing as quickly as possible. However, there may be times when an animal is not at the shelter. Thank you for your understanding!
