SPCA Pet of the Week: Meet Peanut

Updated 2 years ago

Meet Peanut. She is a lovey, 8 yr old long hair blk,brown and cream tabby cat. She came to the SPCA on Feb. 3rd. She was with someone who was moving and could not keep her. She is blind in one eye and has partial vision in another. We can tell she sees some shadow, movement. She had some neurological issues. She does not need to be on any medications.She is very friendly, lovey and would make a great lap cat. She would be better in a quiet home, she has lived with dogs and birds. Calm surroundings would be best, as having the sight issues, she would be startled easily.She loves to be petted. And she will barely nibble on dry cat food, so it is better to feed her canned. She is up to date 0n everything and also microchipped.Do you have room in your home for Peanut???For more information on Peanut at the SPCA in Trenton call 667-8088 or check out: www.spcahancockcounty.org
