Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: Mila Kuteness

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

On June 16th, 2011, one of our shelter neighbors alerted us to the plight of a tiny female cat she found hanging around her apartment complex. Skinny and limping, she feared for her safety on our busy street, plus no one she knew of had a cat like this. Upon examination, it appeared as if this poor little girl (born in October of 2010) had suffered some type of abrading injury that caused the bottom of her left front paw pad to slough off, as well as making the areas in between her toes very sore and inflamed. She also was sporting a rash and few scars on her belly and had a lesion on one lip, so overall, it was high time she was taken off the streets!
Mila Kuteness came in like a tiny,loud tornado (hence her name; after all, Jackie was a force to be reckoned with on "That 70's Show"); initially she didn't play nice with the others, and screeched and screamed her pretty little head off letting you know. Then she fell ill a few days after her arrival and really had me worried; I would rather have her screaming and moaning than silent and lethargic any day. After lab work, barium radiographs and fluids, I got her back up and running again, and this time around she was demure and darling, accepting her neighbors as her friends. :) As it turns out she just had a nasty case of gastritis, probably from eating who-knows-what while she was out fending for herself.
I don't think Mila will ever be tipping the scales at any great weight, as her stature and frame are petite. She can hold her own with the big guys though and I certainly have no qualms about adopting her into a busy household, as she has proven to be quite adventurous and outgoing herself!
