  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 6619344
  • Hair: Short

This poor baby was someone's kitten before he was let out or lost.  We got him March 27, 2013 and he was approximately 3-4 months old.  he's always been 'special' - hence his name.  Be be Monkey Boy is incredibly endearing .  He came in as BeBe but as we got to know him, his personality, behavior and body type, we added Monkey Boy.  Even as a sick kitten, he had a stockiness to him and an unusually sturdy body shape with mid length black silken hair and while in the cage, he stretched to reach us when we got close.  Poor baby had an upper respiratory system that filled his face with snot.  He had a burst abscess between his right eye and ear that had multiple drainage holes, one so close to the ear, upon initial inspection from a distance, it looked like he had pus coming out of his ear.  He was scared and starving when he showed up at a caretakers door, attracted by the food she fed her TNR'd yard cats. 

Bebe Monkey Boy is now healthier than most cats that haven't been through what he's been through. He's a chunky monkey too.   One of CatVando's specialties is to take in the sick and send out the happy and healthy.  He is charming, affectionate, playful, responds to conversation and voice and we just can't say enough good about this boy - we hate to see him go!  But know he needs to go to make room from others.    He's good with other cats and a big Belgian Shepherd.

About CatVando TNR Corp

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to prevent kittens through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, sometimes we get Trap Neuter Adoption (TNA’s). When shelters are full, we foster, socialize and vet the kittens. This part of our program also involves local youths in the care of kittens in addition to our TNR efforts.

While in our system, kittens are fed a good quality Grain-Free Kibble and care is taken to assure their long and healthy life to the extent possible. We supplement for specific issues i.e. Pro-biotics, EFA's, immune boosters and sometimes digestive enzymes.. Many are exposed to dogs and are comfortable with them. They’ve been exposed to many wonderful volunteers of all ages.

When possible we capture the mama with the litter to assure their fuller development. Many times we keep them together for 9-12 weeks. Our adoption fee covers spay neuter surgery, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, parasite, ear mite & flea treatment when necessary, and a micro chip. And some of them have a small ear tip—just a reminder that you’ve given a cat a home that could have otherwise had to fend for itself, on the streets.

Our adopted cats and kittens are welcome back for the duration of their life in the event the adoption doesn’t work out, or if it becomes impossible for you to keep the cat. We’re always available for consultation about behavior, health, or referrals to assistance beyond our scope.
