Notes: Cha Cha has HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy), which is an enlarged heart, but doesn't require medication yet. You can read more about HCM on the Donegal Cattery web site. When Cha Cha feels like it, she will offer kisses all over your face. She also loves to be groomed. She is on a combination dry cat food consisting of Royal Canin Persian and Young Again 50/22. You can find out more about these foods on my web site. She will have the best chance for a full life as the ďonly petĒ or sharing a home with one other feline buddy. However, she is used to residing with several cats and a few dogs. So it is not an absolute necessity. My reason for wishing to place Cha Cha in a "no other pets home" is that stress will worsen HCM and can potentially shorten the life of a cat with it. Cha Cha is comfortable with other animals. When it comes to people however, she is very smart and knows a bad person intuitively. This became evident when she lived at my friendís house and started acting out (inappropriate elimination) in the presence of someone she didnít like (my friendís alcoholic husband). Cha Cha has not had any episodes since my friend brought her back to me at the insistence of her husband and has been here for several months now. So the best home for her is a happy home. Only someone serious about keeping Cha Cha for the balance of her life and medically following up on her HCM will be considered for her adoption. She has lived in three other homes and does not need the additional stress of future moves.
