He was returned to us 8 months later with an eye injury. Linus has now become much shyer even though the eye is now healed. He only wants attention on his terms. Due to conflicting stories we are not sure what happened to Linus to cause him to change.
He still loves to play and will rub all over you but will only tolerate being petted certain ways. His foster mom is working with him to help him overcome this and says he is slowly becoming the Linus she knew as a kitten.
Linus is just under 2 years old( born 7/ 2014), neutered, up to date on vaccination and negative for FeLV and FIV.
Linus enjoys the company of other cats and has a special friend in his foster home named Ember. The ideal home for Linus would be one which includes Ember. That’s why he is praying for a miracle. Chances are tough enough adopting out one special-needs kitty much less adopting out two together. (Ember is listed on our website)
He is hoping that there is a very special person out there who would consider adopting 2 special-needs kitties. He would settle for another cat friend from his foster home but Ember is his favorite. They are often seen laying together.
Are you that special someone?
