MEET THE HELEN KELLER OF CATS!
Gretchen may be special needs, but she is absolutely not challenged! She is a one-year-old oriental shorthair mix available for adoption at Wayside Waifs in Kansas City. If you watch her walk, you'll notice that her head kind of wobbles a little bit. After many tests, the vets figured out that she has limited vision and hearing, they figure that is why her head wobbles like it does.
Gretchen doesn't let that stop her though! Most days you will find her free roaming around the cat adoption area. She loves to explore and socialize. She is quite brave! She can also be very vocal and loves attention.
Because of Gretchen's special needs, she would do best as the only pet in the home. She would do okay with kids, but they would have to be mature enough to understand her situation.
If you are in the market for a special needs kitty, Gretchen would be a perfect addition to your family!
