Meet the wonderful Josephine!
Josephine is a very special kitty looking for a special home. She came to WCHS during a transfer from another shelter as they ran out of space. When she first came to the original shelter, she was emaciated and appeared to have a URI (kitty cold) as she was wheezing when she breathed. After a few weeks on meds, she never seemed to recover. Vets took a closer look and realized she did not have any signs of a kitty cold, or any sickness, at all other than the wheezing. She had x-rays taken, only to find no abnormalities. Once Josephine was in our care, we took the same steps to find the same results.
Josephine does not appear to be in any pain, or have any difficulty breathing. She simply has a noisy, interesting sound about her when she does breath. We would recommend any potential adopter to get Josephine a CT scan to find out more information.
Staff would be happy to discuss the potential costs of adding Josephine to your home.
Josephine is quite sweet, but very shy at first. She is looking for a quiet home. She is currently living in our community cat room with three other cats, and tolerates them well. We haven't actively seen her play with the other kitties, but we do catch her off playing with toys on her own.

Josephine's adoption fee is $80. This includes her spay surgery, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations, as well as testing for FIV, FeLV, and internal parasites.
