Project Description


Cleo is an approximately 8 year old, 6 pound, CHINCHILLA PERSIAN with claws. Cleo came to SPCR from a rural Indiana shelter after her owner passed away. Cleo has been very neglected in the past.  Upon coming into rescue, she was completely matted, had very bad teeth, and her front nails had grown deeply embedded into her paw pads.  After weeks of treatment and antibiotic shots,  Cleo is finally feeling better and her feet are  healed. Due to the past trauma with her feet, she should continue to have her nails cut at the vet for awhile. Cleo has recently had a dental and she prefers to eat primarily canned food. She is looking for someone who will continue to feed her wet food in the future. All in all, Cleo is a very sweet girl considering everything she has been through.  She would love to be an only cat, but can live with other gentle cats that will not bother her. Cleo loves attention and is learning how to play with wand toys. Cleo’s coat will continue to grow in.  Please consider giving this sweet gentle girl a home. ADOPTION FEE $150.  FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
