About Porcupine

Moderately Shy

Porcupine is a very sweet little girl who loves attention. Although she doesn’t enjoy being picked up or cuddled, she will remain at your side the entire day. She has a special diet due to a sensitive tummy but is a very good eater so long as she has the right food. She enjoys sleeping beside you and loves to sit in the sunshine and will play for hours with her catnip toys.

“Hello everyone, At my foster mom’s house I try my best to be like the other cats but sometimes it’s difficult for me. I have a hard time jumping and my legs sometimes freeze and don’t work too well, but I make up for it by climbing up or reaching for what I want. Please try your best not to pick me up, it gives me a lot of anxiety and makes my body seize. My eyes also sometimes stay shut because my head is in a certain position, but after a minute they will be back to normal.

I really enjoy eating but if I don’t have my special type of food my tummy hurts because of some allergies. I love lasers and soft plush toys dipped in catnip, and if you’re home I’ll follow you around all day. I really like being around people and other animals, but please make sure they are very easy going and don’t want to wrestle with me. Like most animals, I really don’t like any loud noises so a calm environment is best.

Please come and meet me, I can’t wait to find my forever home!”

Good with Cats?

She is OK with other cats but if they are playful and want to wrestle with someone, this cat is not the best option.

Good with Dogs?

She is OK with dogs but if they are playful and want to wrestle with someone, this cat is not the best option.

Good with Kids?

OK with kids but they cannot pick her up or cuddle with her.

Do I Need Special Care?

Both, Medical and Behavioral (Porcupine has had some trauma in her past and as a result has some sort of neurological issues. She is unable to jump or be picked up. He muscles will often seize up when playing or trying to run and at times her eyelids remain stuck closed while trying to eat, lift her head in a certain position, or while yawning.)
