Twinkie is a handsome, soft-spoken yellow tabby teenage boy who is a true survivor. He fell victim to the cold, hard streets where he was suffering from a debilitating case of mange and a bad upper respiratory infection. Many people turned a blind eye and left him outside to die until his urgent plight came to the attention of his caring foster mom who rescued him from the streets and used her skills to nurse him back to health. In spite of this rough start Twinkie never grew to be hard or unforgiving and instead is a loving boy who purred his thanks during all his medical treatments and is so sweet he makes your teeth hurt. He is healed and healthy now but because of his past he needs a small space to start off in when adjusting to a new environment. He warms up in a timely manner and has a mild curiosity so does like to explore the house but will retreat to his small space as a safe zone if it's too much. Twinkie will need an understanding and patient human who will give him time to properly settle in so he can show off his grateful, kind, gentle personality that can melt the coldest of hearts. He loves to cuddle and be petted once the bond of trust with his human is built and he is dog and cat friendly. Twinkie's heart is bigger than himself and he's just full of love - please consider opening your heart and home to this sweet boy.
