Hemingway was found by a good Samaritan in the middle of the Veteran's Expressway in the construction zone in Tampa. He was walking along the concrete barrier in the median (see photo), then went across oncoming traffic and hid under some construction stuff. With the help of the construction workers, he was caught and taken to a vet right away since he was bleeding.
At the vet, it was discovered that he was microchipped so his owners were called. Both husband and wife refused to come get him! Since he would have been sent to the pound and most likely euthanized, his rescuer took him home. It was determined that all of the bloody areas were not due to injuries but to a severe case of mites. He has been bathed and treated for everything and is now feeling so much better!
Hemingway is the sweetest cat ever! He loves to be petted and to curl up in your lap. He also loves to drink out of the bathroom sink. And the coolest thing about him is that he is a polydactyl cat, meaning he has extra toes!

He has been treated for mites, worms, fleas, FeLV/Fev tested (neg.), and is current on FVRCP-C & FeLV vaccines, He is on a monthly dose of Revolution and his adoption comes with one free vet visit to a participating LAAR veterinarian.
