"HISS! HISS! Meows! Oh my catnips! What in cat sakes have I gotten myself into? A selfie? With a human? How vain can a human get!? Well, you know what it is- he really wants to make himself look so much better by being seen with a cat- more specifically, me. ME! Samson- only the mostest bestest cat in the universe!

Zyi needs someone to adopt, or pawssibly foster, her so she can receive medical attention for severe hip dysplasia. Her hips are causing her pain and the area is tender making it hard for her to find true comfort.

She has been confined to the shelter for too long and is pawing to find a human with a "Forever Home" and a yard to romp and give herself pawlenty of exercise. Barkingly, and to provide needed medical attention and place her on a diet to relieve some of her pain.

She just needs some good ol' down home lovin'!

Zyi will do best in a home without cats and older mini-humans.  She is dog selective so a meet and greet with the resident dogs are required.
