Meet Cosmo. She is estimated to be almost two years old. She grew up with no UVB light, but luckily has not shown any signs of serious MBD. She loves to hang out on tall places like a cat tree and even on her humans head or shoulders. She would be happy to learn harness training and walk around in a grassy yard in summer time. She was surrendered because of an abscess on her face. She has been treated and is finished healing up.
