Needs hypoallergenic kibble
Jasmine approx 6yrs old has spent a month at the HAS. Jasmine is as sweet as her name suggests. She is a truly beautiful girl that loves head rubs and will reward you with purrs and licks. She has a sad past though. She is afraid of feet. She will stare at them intently and panic if you move too fast around her. It's our belief she must have been kicked repeatedly for her to have this intense fear. We will shower her with love and affection and when she learns to trust again, we know she will make a lovely companion to someone very special.
*** FOSTER for JASMINE NEEDED ASAP ***
Jasmine is 6. Rescued after a month at HAC, she was in foster care and now needs a foster again, as soon as possible. Urgency is dictated by her hypoallergenic diet (kibble) provided by Special Ones, as she can't be fed strictly separately with other cats at the shelter. Jasmine developed a stress related allergy like skin condition treated by a vet, but needs a stress free environment and a foster with no other cats or dogs ideally, not to risk mixing the food. Her canned wet food is not a prescription one. Please message us, if you are able to foster our sweet girl to help her heal and find her forever home soon.
