I’m Zelda. Back in 2016, I was hanging out in a house in with a bunch of other cats and dogs; not sure where the humans went. I went to a shelter, where Old Dog Haven heard about me (does that make me famous?). I was in pretty rough shape, overweight and a mouth full of really rotten teeth.
Old Dog Haven found me a nice foster family to live with and made sure I got the dental care I needed. My mouth was so bad I had to have TWO oral surgeries and five bone grafts to fix my fistulas (holes where my teeth fell out and the bone was infected).
After that, I thought I was going to get adopted, but I developed seizures. The nice thing is that I got to stay with this nice family. They don’t even mind that I’m only sort of potty trained – they put out piddle pads for me so I have a special place to ‘go’ in the house. They also give me rides up and down the stairs, since I can’t do stairs any longer.
I no longer have teeth, and just have to take a few pills every day to keep my liver healthy, prevent any more seizures, and to make my arthritis less achy.
I love to go exploring, and getting puppercinos (a cup of whip cream) from the local Dutch Bros.
