Dante came to us unable to use his hind legs at 10 months of age, after being re-surrendered to a high-kill shelter in NYC (he was adopted from same facility when he was 3 months old).
Puzzled yet determined, his foster mom and All Sentient Beings enlisted the help of a diligent and highly dedicated veterinarian who discovered that Dante has a nerve disorder that IS treatable. After just 3 days on a common & inexpensive medication, this formerly sullen tuxedo-clad sir transformed into a chirpy, running and climbing kitty who was thrilled to be mobile again.
Dante is still on his medication, which is available for ~$10.00/month from any pharmacy (via prescription from a vet) and we are working towards being able to taper him off of it over time. His longterm prognosis is very good and there is no indication that he should have any serious medical issues moving forward.
Dante, being a refined, young gentleman, loves human attention and will definitely curl up with a warm, willing person- if you like to read, he'd make a & purr-fect partner in your literary endeavors. He is good with other cats and seems genuinely unfazed by gentle dogs of any size (he currently lives with a German Shepherd).
Won't you open your heart and home to this well-dressed one year old, whose shown us all that never giving up really is the way to go? Please consider adopting Dante, a kitty whose never going to give up on life or loving you!
