Aditi has come so far since we first met her! In early October, a kind Good Samaritan brought a fearful and injured Aditi to the ASPCA Animal Hospital after finding her as a stray. With wounds on her left front leg, our veterinarians made the difficult decision to amputate her limb in order to prevent complications and future suffering. We don’t know what Aditi went through before she came to us, but even after her amputation site healed, she remained very fearful, refusing to play or let people touch her. With time and love from our Behavior team and a dedicated foster caregiver, Aditi has completely blossomed! She may always be a kitty who can be a little nervous in new places, around new people and when hearing or seeing sudden sounds or movements. But in her foster home, Aditi has proved what a lovely cat she truly is! After being given time to settle in, Aditi has shown that she loves to play—she is still a young, spunky kitty after all! She also enjoys being pet when it’s paired with a slow approach and has even started to cuddle up next to her foster caregiver in bed. She’s a wonderful little lady—and a staff favorite—who can’t wait to make even more progress in a new, adoptive home.
We think that Aditi would do best in a home with children ages eight and up, as small kids may be too much for her sensitive soul. If you think that Aditi would be a good fit for you, please fill out our Cat Adoption Survey!
