A sweet gray cat with some special health needs needs a new home in the Salt Lake City, Utah area.
The 2-year-old female named Carrot was first brought to the Best Friends Animal Society’s Lifesaving Center in Salt Lake City in July 2021, the shelter told Fox News Digital.
She was originally at a partner shelter affiliated with No Kill Utah.
Carrot was adopted as a kitten and was returned due to health issues. Her previous owners suspected she had seizures, the shelter said.

Still, Carrot is a “beauty with the softest fur,” the shelter said.
And while she “prefers a quieter environment,” Carrot has “an energetic and fun-loving personality that comes out as soon as she feels comfortable.”

“Carrot may take a while to get used to new friends, but has previously lived successfully alongside dogs, cats and older children,” they said.
Carrot, an “independent girl”, who likes to occupy herself with toys, is not one to turn down the attention of her owners.
