This absolutely stunning female dilute calico cat was living in a backyard when the kind-hearted resident noticed there was something different about her eyes. She scooped her up and brought her to AALOC. A vet diagnosed Luna had only 60% vision in her left eye but 100% in her right eye. Luna’s slight vision impairment doesn’t stop this feline from being a bit of a stinker. You can only pet her once and then she will smack you back with her paw. She looks for attention but then isn’t sure she wants to receive affection. Luna is a bit of an enigma.
Dilute is not a breed, but rather a specific coat pattern. The blend of three different colors - usually white, black and brown or red hues - is what creates a dilute-colored feline. The pattern is quite rare, only occurring in one in a thousand cats.
We feel the best fit for Luna would be a quiet adult home with someone willing to provide the patience Luna needs to build trust. If you are willing to give Luna a chance please submit an application to adopt Luna. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet Luna and get to know her a bit.
