CHARITY...Shy sweetheart wants to be loved!! Charity is part of the Limestone County Rescue effort we started in February/March 2012. The condensed version of his story is this... A few weeks ago we received an email from a fellow Forgotten Felines Volunteer who had heard about an emergency situation in the County. "Basically there's a rental property where some animals had been abandoned. The owners of the property had known that the renters had some animals but had no idea of the real story...or the condition the house was left in. Fast forward a couple of weeks (I believe) and through a series of events, it was discovered there were somewhere around 20 cats left to fend for themselves when folks were evicted. When owners discovered it, they started feeding in hopes to get some help. The cats are generally people-oriented but of course, some are very scared and reluctant to approach. Some try to leave with you when you leave. They look in good health with the exception of some upper respiratory infections (URI). Unfortunately, probably none are fixed, if evidenced by the kitten population. Generally speaking they are quite pretty, friendly cats that need some care. A mom with 4 kittens has been pulled out but because the kittens had a URI; one died, but the others are doing great and rapidly getting well. Two other adults that were worrisome were pulled out. Sadly a blind one had to be euthanized because of multiple health problems (not because of being blind) but the one who was stumbling is doing better. The intent is to save them all but we'll need folks to step up to do that. We are networking with the hopes of other groups sharing the load and obviously the quicker we pull them out, the better off they'll be." Charity was one of those precious souls that had been left behind to fend for themselves...his greatest wish is to never ever have to go through this kind of an ordeal ever again. Charity is domestic medium hair Grey Tabby and White; with a FULL TAIL!!! We guesstimate him to have been born on 9/6/11. Charity is a bit shy still...but considering all that has gone on in this boy's life the past few months, I say he is doing just great!! From being hungry and abandoned...to being trapped...transported in a car...to the vet...for shots and neutering...back in the car...to a foster home...whew!!! I cannot imagine why he could possibly be a bit taken aback ; 0 Those who have spent some quality time with Charity know him to be a sweet loving boy...who wants to know love and safety. With these two components he is sure to thrive and blossom. Everyday is a new experience to learn from...and he seems to be a willing and active participant. Surely with some love, patience and time he will become a wonderful addition to the right family. Charity has tested positive for Feline Leukemia...this does not have to be a death sentence!!! Right now he is healthy and happy ~ with proper vet care he should continue to live quite contently until he is called HOME. Please read Dr. Kayla Dougia's Article on Feline Leukemia in our Spring 2012 Newsletter (http://members.petfinder.com/%7EAL143/images/FFSpring2012NL.pdf) ~ and please open your heart and home to this special and deserving boy. Charity has been neutered and he is up to date on his shots.
