Ernie is a sweet, calm, gentle little boy around 8 months old. He was rescued after his caregivers left him all wet in a bucket, on a cold night. He was emaciated, covered in fleas, and his right eye was deflated. He has made a speedy recovery and is strong and healthy, but his eye may have little sight in it although it is inflated again. It is cloudy and smaller than his other eye, but it does not bother him at all. The vet does not think there are any problems now, but maybe in the future he might need to have it removed. Ernie needs a family that understands this.
Ernie loves wand toys, and playing with other cats and kittens. He has a sweet meow that he uses it to ask for treats. Smart boy. And he loves his best friend Mr. Schnitzel, also in the picture with him. Ernie is very sweet although a little shy with new folks, but very loving and talkative once he trusts you.
He is spayed and up to date on shots. Ernie would do well in a home with kids, cats, and kittens; maybe the right calm and loving dog too.
