Luma is a little pixie of a girl. She came to us from a wonderful rescue in Champaign, IL called CatSnap. I am not sure about the origin of her name, but her pale green eyes are luminescent!
Luma has a Manx Syndrome and a very leaky bladder - more so than most of our cats. Until she developed a serious case of urine scald, her foster mom did not realize that she required so much special care. We manually express her bladder 2-3 times daily, as well as her bowel.
Initially, Luma was carefree and playful - full of life. Along the way, she became scared and seems quite vulnerable around most of the male cats. She exhibits 'prey-like' behavior when around the big boys, who likely traumatized her. Of course, this makes her that much more interesting to them.
She, Merlin and Sammie share a private room with their own bath. Luma feels safe with Sammie, despite some of Sammie's odd behaviors. She is her usual playful self in their space or outside by herself where she loves to roll in the dirt!
Luma is one of the CCAS fire survivors. She really needs her own family as she does not feel safe in a group living environment. Lulu is delightful with humans, and does okay with girl cats – but not aggressive boys.
If we can’t find the perfect adoptive or long-term foster family, Luma has a permanent place with us at CCAS. Should you or someone you know want to care for Luma, please email us.
