Perth, Australia: Raffikki is a female cat who is currently living with lots of other cats and a puppy which is stressing her out and she is not coping well. She needs a new home and Perth Rescue Angels are looking for a special foster carer as a matter of urgency.
Alternatively the person can adopt but she needs a home where there are no pets or children or perhaps a laid-back cat or dog.
Raffikki suffers from an autoimmune problem which affects her nose as you can see in the photograph.
I’ve seen this health problem before in domestic cats. The well-known condition Bengal Nose is also caused, it is believed, by an autoimmune problem.
Perth Rescue Angels is a not-for-profit located in Western Australia and you can find the details by clicking on this link.
She is very beautiful cat with a wonderful tail. Her autoimmune disease means that her human guardian will need to apply a topical treatment every day to keep the condition under control. The coat also requires brushing (gently, because she doesn’t always like it).
She’s got a very nice personality, enjoys the company of people and receives affection willingly.
P.S. I wonder if the autoimmune problem is linked to the stress? A study on human health found a potential link between stress and autoimmune disease.
