Garfunkel was found outdoors. An older woman was feeding him, but as it got colder, she decided he needed to go to the city pound to protect him. He sat there for weeks before being rescued, and she called each day to check on him. He did suffer from frostbite, so he is missing part of his ear. He also got a bad cold at the pound, but he's finally feeling much better!
He is really wonderful-- chill, social, and just wants to hang out nearby while not being clingy. Really, he'll sit in the same room with you to be nearby, but just calmly nap and accept belly rubs. However, Garfunkel is FeLV+. That means that he will probably have a shorter lifespan than other cats (3-5 years most likely), though some feluk kitties have lived much longer. We have done full blood work on him, and he his values all look perfect! Because he is contagious to other kitties who are not FeLV+, he needs to be an only cat or with other feline leukemia cats. He is not contagious to dogs or people.
To meet this hunky guy, please email email@example.com. Garfunkel is in a foster home and not one of our physical shelters.
