Francine is a spunky girl with a voracious appetite and a lot to say. We think she’s about 2 or 3 years old. She’s pretty vocal and loves attention, but she’s not too keen on being picked up. She loves being petted on her head though, and she sometimes makes cute little “sigh” noises. She might follow you around meowing for food. We only let her have dry food in small portions to make sure she doesn’t eat too quickly and get sick. We think she’d eat the whole shelter if she could!
Francine wasn’t spayed when she came to us, and it turned out she had pyometra. Pyometra is an infection of the uterus which, if left untreated, can be fatal. She received an immediate antibiotic injection and was scheduled for a spay as soon as possible. Spay surgeries for pyometra usually cost more (an extra $125 or more) and are more invasive than a standard spay surgery because the uterus is enlarged. But Francine got the care she needed and healed well! Now she’s ready to come home with you where she can eat even more snacks!
