Meet Misty

Misty is a purebred Persian kitty that comes with papers and a registered name. She has some special needs and won't be right for all homes, but she'll make a rewarding companion to that special someone.

Through no fault of her own, Misty had gone through a few homes before being being surrendered to DCH. She was badly matted and needed to be fully clipped to remove all of her uncomfortable matts, and spent the first few months running away and hiding from her foster carer.

She eventually progressed to snoozing near her foster carer's head while they slept, and slowly but surely, stopped darting away as soon as they opened their eyes, and very gradually started accepting pats.

Misty is a sweet girl who will often meow at you and stand juuuuust out of your reach so you can't pat her, but will 'knead the air' as if she's making biscuits and shake her tail while talking to you.
She definitely wants love, affection and pats, but struggles with fast movements. She isn't a fan of being picked up, but once you have her snuggled on your chest she will start purring and kneading.

Her preference is to come up to you for pats on her own accord. Her favourite is to come up to you when you're relaxing on the couch at night. She will walk slowly along the top of the couch and meow at you, so you can slowly and gently give her lots of neck scratches and pats - she LOVES them!

She enjoys being near the other cats in her foster carers home and ignores the resident dog.

She would suit an indoor only home without loud, rambunctious children.

Misty had ongoing eye issues with a corneal sequestrum and entropion that required specialist surgery.
The specialist vet performed the quite complicated surgery that involved sewing a piece of donor eyeball onto her damaged section of eye.

The surgery was a success and Misty is now fully healed, but she does require ongoing eye maintenance.

The final costs were $1,655.70. Any assistance with sponsoring some of these fees would be greatly appreciated.

Misty requires regular eye drops/lubrication to ensure her comfort moving forward. Her new owner must be willing to apply these drops daily, as well as maintaining her brushing schedule to avoid matts.
(Or as an alternative, arrange 3monthly visits with a cat groomer to have her shaved)
