Project Description


Claire is an adorable BLACK EXOTIC SHORTHAIR (Zot). She’s spayed, weighs about ten pounds, has her claws, and is seven years old. This gentle girl wears a short, thick ebony coat, and has large expressive eyes so well loved in the breed. Her face is semi-flat – a nod to her Persian ancestry – but not as flat as some, so Claire is blessed with “good face plumbing” resulting in very little eye drainage. Have you seen a cuter tiny black nose? We don’t know much about Claire’s past – she was whisked into rescue by a kind person who saw her listed on an internet thrift site. We have no idea how a girl this sweet could end up homeless, but there’s a lot we do know about Claire. First, she is as sweet as they come. Although a bit cautious in new situations, Claire warms up quickly and then is all in for pets, rubs and neck scratches. Second, this girl has a lot of love to give. She’s asking for a quiet home where she can watch birds from soft fleece beds and be the queen of her castle. Claire is rooming alone in foster care, but we think with proper introductions she’d likely be fine with one or two gentle fur buds. Older, respectful kids would be great, but Claire will do best in a calm environment where she can blossom in her own time. Her coat requires occasional combing, but is less prone to matting than long-haired Persians, so she’d be good for someone new to the breed. This girl just had a dental and is ready for her new home. C’mon. You know you’ve always wanted a zot. Claire’s waiting for your call. ADOPTION FEE $200. Fostered in Peoria, IL.
