MSPCA seeks home for “most challenging” cat adoption

BOSTON (WHDH) - The MSPCA says it is looking for a home for “Giselle,” a 2-year-old cat that is “the most challenging cat the Jamaica Plain adoption center has ever tried to place.”

Giselle is a Munchkin cat, a breed so small they can fit in the palm of a person’s hand, and the shelter is issuing an “urgent call” for adopters.

The shelter manager says the former owner was overwhelmed after trying to care for the cat, which is completely blind and suffers from joint and nerve pain, though the center notes the pain can be controlled with medication.

The cat is also recovering after a lung infection.

The MSPCA says the ideal adopter is someone who can keep the cat free of stairs, since she can’t see and her legs are too small to manage them.

Anyone who is interested in adopting Giselle should contact the MSPCA.
