|I don't want to say the name, but I work in a nationally owned petstore chain. Last night two people came in and abandoned their three legged maine coon behind some boxes in the back of our store. Luckily a nice customer found her and told me. I took her home with me to see how things would work out.
This is seriously one of the sweetest cats. She's declawed, a little overweight, uses the litter box fine, comes when called and loves to be petted. She's still a little nervous, but my gosh I don't understand why someone would do this. She has a vet appointment for this afternoon for bloodtests and to get vaccinated.
She seems like a perfect cat. I just have to worries: does anyone have experience dealing with a disabled cat? This is not a dealbreaker for me. I just want to know ways to make life a bit easier. However I do have another male/neutered cat and an older dog. My dog has an issue with food aggression and I have to feed my cat on our counter where my dog can't see. Neither of them have been introduced to the new cat, but any ideas where I can feed this cat when they are introduced? I'm not sure what her jumping abilities are and I don't want to push her limitations.
Also any recommendations on how to introduce them?
