Pawsitive Karma Rescue is an animal rescue that primarily focuses on saving the “last chance” animals from Central Texas shelters. This was the case with precious Nadia. Nadia stood out to our evaluators because of her calm demeanor and adorable blue crossed eyes. With a closer look we realized how truly beautiful she is. She is a unique lilac point Siamese with dilute tortie markings.
Nadia was pulled from a home along with 85+ cats in Mesquite, Texas because of animal neglect. All of the cats were immediately on the euthanasia list at the Mesquite Animal Shelter because there was absolutely no room for them. The cats were stacked in crates throughout the hallways and rooms awaiting rescue. Nadia was quiet and she had a back leg that didn’t bend, so she was easily passed up by other rescues.
PKR took her in on the day she was due to be euthanized along with Mango, Curious George, Angelica, and Jack Sparrow. When Nadia came to us she was matted with urine, her ears were covered in ear mites, and she had a large hernia. After we rescued Nadia we then learned her full story. Nadia has had a rough start to life. She was abused as a kitten by children with a lighter and was treated for third degree burns. She has burn scares on her face and a few spots on her body. Also, Nadia’s back left leg tendon was cut and never properly treated. She cannot bend this leg at all or use it for jumping or climbing. But this does not hinder Nadia in the least bit from getting around. She has figured out a way to live with her injury.
Nadia has been treated and spoiled in our program. She had surgery to remove her hernia and all mites and worms are gone. Her leg does not cause her any pain or discomfort. She is now healthy as can be and happily spoiled.
Despite Nadia’s past, she is not holding on to it one bit. Nadia loves life and is the sweetest cat you will meet. Nadia even won the “Rescue Story of The Year” at PALS 10th Annual PetFest. It was the first year a cat has won. They saw how wonderful Nadia is. She is very tolerant and VERY loving. Nadia is truly a traditional cat for the true cat lovers! She has a calm soul and loves to lay on her foster’s chest and watch TV. Her perfect life would be with a person who wants a single cat they can sit with and pet. Nadia would be perfectly content in a home with no other animals, just her and her favorite person, her adopter.
