Mange Disfigured This Cat

A severe case of mange disfigured this beautiful tortoiseshell cat. She is two-years-of-age and at a Burlingame animal shelter. The mange caused her ears to become misshapen and the hair which has grown back on her head is white. It appears to have lost all its pigmentation and the tortoiseshell pigmentation is beautiful.

Her mange was successfully treated by the veterinary staff at the Peninsula Humane Society & Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

She is described as being exceptionally sweet-natured. At the time of dictating this post I believe that she is still available for adoption. They want her to be an indoor cat and have lots of love and attention. Her name is ‘Rogue’.

She is now up to date on her standard treatments, namely, micro-chipping, vaccinations and spaying. Her adoption fee is US$80. The shelter is just south of South San Francisco off the 101 Highway. A Google search will located it.

Shelter contact details: 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame or call (650) 340-7022.

  1. Poor girl. I don’t know what it is but I can get more attached to cats with problems. This one looks like she was bleached or something. Mange is a nasty malady. She’d be really easy to spot in the dark; great if she got lost outside, not so much if she was hiding from a dog.

  2. What a gorgeous tortoiseshell kitty Rogue is. I see the sweetness in those spring green eyes. She really deserves a forever home full of understanding and love. Sending prayers for this special girl.💜💜💜
