Cabbage is a friendly outgoing shorthair cat. She enjoys spending time with people and loves to show off her toys to you. Weighing in at over 17 pounds, Cabbage is on a managed weight loss program to improve her health. She’s already responding well and has lost nearly 2 pounds since coming into Valley Humane’s care on July 10th. Due to her size, Cabbage is prone to constipation but daily medication and a watered down diet is helping her avoid tummy troubles. She takes her medication well and has she loses weight, her GI issues are expected to improve. She is playful and curious and at only 3 years old, she should have a long healthier life ahead of her!
