Sweet cat disfigured by disease is up for adoption

By Bay City News | PUBLISHED: February 24, 2018 at 4:36 pm | UPDATED: February 24, 2018 at 4:37 pm A Burlingame animal shelter is seeking a home for a 2-year-old cat who was disfigured by a severe case of mange. Rogue was brought last month to the Peninsula Humane Society & Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals with the most severe case of the disease that the veterinary staff has ever seen, a spokeswoman said. The cat was successfully treated, but her ears now look shrunken and the hair that has grown back on her head is white, contrasting with her tortoise-shell coat. “She is an exceptionally sweet 2-year-old cat who wants a home where she can be an indoor cat and have lots of love and attention,” humane society spokeswoman Buffy Martin Tarbox said in a statement. Rogue had no microchip when she came into the shelter and no one came forward to claim her. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. Potential adopters must arrive at least an hour before closing to complete the adoption. Copyright © 2018 by Bay City News, Inc. — Republication, Rebroadcast or any other Reuse
