We found Heather in the grassy median strip of a 6 lane highway. When we approached she meowed but did not move. We picked her up gently and took her to our vet, who found she had a few abrasions, but nothing serious. Although we checked shelters and posted signs, we were never able to locate her owner, and Heather became a permanent resident of Mollie’s Cat Place. Heather is friendly but shy. She likes to be petted, but she doesn’t like to be picked up and carried and she will express her displeasure by growling softly.
Heather has developed some health issues, including hyperthyroidism, stomatitis (inflammation of the soft tissues of the mouth) and edema. We moved her into the main house to keep and eye on her.
