Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: Adele

Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about Adele:

The adorable, amazing Adele got her name from me because upon intake, she was simply rolling in the fleas! Also, I thought such a lovely lady needed a name as pretty and dignified as she was (she doesn't make a peep, very uncharacteristic of the breed). Born sometime in the summer of 2002 we guesstimate, Adele was initially found by an employee of our local Humane Society, laying on her side in the yard, pretty unresponsive. She contacted her fellow volunteer and ours, Amanda Neuenfeldt, who got the ball rolling to get this poor sick kitty in to us ASAP. With the heat and humidity, an old girl like this wasn't going to last long, so thankfully we were able to welcome her into our care on July 2nd, 2011.
A matted, flea-ridden mess, not only was Adele externally a hot mess, but her lab-work showed changes caused by a severe infection in her mouth, and I actually ended up extracting many teeth to rectify the painful, smelly situation. She was eating like a champ pre-op, but even better once I removed those troublesome teeth. After an afternoon at the clinic spa, she was also prettied up and smelling as fresh as summer rain. And then, peacefully, she slept to her little heart's content. The time outdoors, however long it was (and we know it was quite a while given the poor shape she was in), had taken its toll on her fragile body, which desperately needed to recover.
And recover she did! In fact, looking at her just a week post-arrival, you wouldn't guess she was in such dire straits. She is happy as a clam to lounge the day away, snoozing and snacking, getting some one-on-one from our volunteers who are more than willing to spoil a good old gal like Adele! Ultimately we want to find her a pretty calm, quiet household to spend the rest of her life in, as we feel she deserves to be pampered and treated like a princess. :)
