Personality: Bean is a sweet cat looking for a quiet place she can call home. She is a tripod who gets around just fine on three legs. She can be a little shy at first but after a few pets, she opens up and will approach for more petting. She would love a quiet home where she can snuggle up on the couch and spend time with the people she loves best.
History: Bean was adopted as a kitten and surrendered back to HSSV as an adult.
Dog/Cat Skills: Bean lived in a home with dogs and multiple cats. The owners noted that there was often conflict between the animals and they observed extensive bullying behavior towards Bean, especially around the litter box. The owner then noted a history of inappropriate urination (urinating outside the litter box). This occurred several times over the years likely due to the bullying she was experiencing. Bean has shown to use her litter box in our care as it is scooped daily and kept clean. Bean is also housed in a quiet space by herself and was provided at least 2 weeks to settle into her space.
Medical: Bean arrived at HSSV in 2018 with a deformed left hind leg. To treat and prevent wounds, it was necessary to amputate this limb. She is fully recovered from her surgery. She is expected to be pain-free and no further treatment for these wounds is anticipated. Three-legged cats have an excellent quality of life. They can be extremely active and she is expected to have a normal life-span for a cat. It is recommended that she be kept indoors for her own safety due to her minor physical limitations.
