Meet Squeak
Squeak is a special needs girl who may have been born with her two back paws the wrong way, but everything about her is right!! She loves to cuddle. She wants to be picked up. She wants to be cuddled. She wants to be petted. She gives kisses and she will pet you back.

Not only is she extremely affectionate but she's very playful. She loves her wand and she loves her toys. You can roll a ball and she will run/slide to get it!

Squeak was rescued from a hoarding situation. Her special needs are that her back legs have backwards paws. This means she usually pulls herself around by her front legs, walks on her back knees, and often slides around a lot. She is **extremely** mobile despite her challenge, so if your home has hardwood floors, she may need some knee pads or maybe even wheels. Squeak does have some trouble using a litter box and will need a very low one and some patience. We have taken her to the vet and she is not going to need future surgeries at this time but it is a possibility in the future she might.

Squeak is fully vetted with appropriate vaccinations, is negative for FELV/FIV, and is spayed. If you are looking for a sweet, affectionate and loving special needs kitty, please ask to meet Squeak!
