Project Description


COSETTE is an adorable MACKEREL TABBY MAINE COON MIX. She is about 11 months old, weighs approximately 8 pounds, is spayed and has her claws. She is up-to-date on vaccinations and is a happy, healthy girl.

If you’re familiar with the book/musical Les Miserable, you may remember the character named Cosette and that her life, when she was young, was not a very happy one . Unfortunately that can also be said for this kitty.  She was found at a local shelter and it was clear from the start that she had sustained significant trauma to her back right leg. Although Mother Nature had tried her best to repair the leg, X-rays revealed that it had been badly broken in several places and had not healed correctly. So to prevent Cosette from further pain and suffering the leg was amputated.

You would think that having survived  through all that pain at such a young age that Cosette would be a very scared and shy kitty, but she is just the opposite❣️❣️. She is one of the most outgoing and friendly cats her foster parents have cared for.  Cosette loves to be with people and will climb into just about anyone’s lap to receive pets and if the timing is right, maybe a little nap.  She is an inspiration to those that have met her,  for she doesn’t know she’s different than any other kitty cat. She runs, she jumps, she plays. She goes up and down stairs and climbs cat trees! She uses her litter boxes and scratching boxes/ posts 100%. She is just fine being with other kittens and cats given a proper introduction. To her foster parents knowledge she has not been around dogs before, but because she is a confident girl, if given a slow and proper introduction, she may be fine living with an older dog that does not chase her and has lived with active cats before. She should be fine with gentle and respectful, kids (ages 5 and older). ADOPTION FEE $100.00. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.
