    I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with cats.

    Derby's Story...
    Darling Derby landed herself in a local animal control facility. The shelter manager contacted us, knowing that Tenth Life handles special cases like hers. Derby has a condition called microphthalmia, meaning "small eyes." Her eyes never fully developed and she is therefore blind. It is yet to be determined whether or not we will need to remove her eyes, but sweet Derby will never see. She is a calm kitten who enjoys lying in your lap or snuggling up by your face. She follows the sound of your voice and timidly explores her environment, often bumping into things. She does consistently use the litter box and is a great eater! Derby needs to be in a home where special accommodations can be made for her & where she has another kitty to snuggle with.


    **update: Derby lives with other foster kittens, one of whom might have had FIP. No valid test for FIP is currently available but Derby may or may not carry enteric corona which *could* possibly mutate to FIP corona, but more likely will not. If Derby were to display any symptoms of FIP, Tenth Life would gladly pay for one of our partner veterinarians to examine her at our expense.
