Persephone’s Playground is a Special Needs Cat Sanctuary located in Northeast Tennessee. We started the Playground after we adopted our first paralyzed cat, Persephone in 2015. We have cats of all different abilities. When these special fur babies enter our home, they become our children. We have made these babies our lives work. They deserve to have the opportunity to lead the best lives possible and we give them that.
Mellow is 2 years old and came to us from Qatar. He was born with an under developed spine. His legs never finished developing and are webbed at the knees. Mellow enjoys life to the fullest and has become the Playground’s special needs ambassador.
Phester will be 2 in June. He came to us from Kuwait. We suspect he suffered a tail pull injury causing extensive nerve damage. Phester has his own way of walking and manages to get wherever he wants to be. He has focal seizures in his rear and takes daily medication for them.
Deimos will be a year old in August. He came to us from North Carolina. Before coming to us, he was hit by a car. His injuries resulted in the need for his tail to be amputated. He also has permanent nerve damage limiting his abilities to jump and potty on his own.
Bull Dawg :
Bull Dawg came to us from Knoxville, TN. He is a Manx Syndrome baby. He will be a year old in August. His Manx Syndrome has caused incontinence issues as well as some mobility issues.
Panda came to us from Kuwait. He just turned a year old in March. Panda has a defect in his spine either from birth or a tail pull injury. He has nerve damage as a result and takes daily medication for focal seizures in his rear legs.
Phoebe & Pheneas :
Phoebe and Pheneas are tiny 5 week old siblings with Manx Syndrome that will be joining us at the Playground as soon as they are old enough to leave their momma. Both of these precious babies have Manx syndrome. Phoebe also has defects in her rear legs that we will be getting evaluated soon as she arrives from Kentucky.
