Hi my name is George! My foster mom calls me "George-the-Survivor" because she just can't seem to get over what I went through. I however, have moved on from that long ago. Doesn't she know how many cat years it's been?

I love to perch in her window sill and watch the world go by. I feel so much safer inside far away from those car engines. You see, one cold night I crawled into a car to sleep, it was so nice and warm...the next thing I remember I was rudely awakened by a slamming door...and well I don't remember much more than extreme pain after that. I didn't realize my nice warm bed was the engine compartment! My fur was ripped from my body as the belts of the engine came to life below me. I must have screamed out, because the next thing I know someone was pulling me from the engine. They brought me to Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center where they cared for me for what seemed like forever.

My foster mom explains I was "degloved" and suffered serious tissue damage. I love this pretty world though, and all the attention they gave me, even though it hurt A LOT I tried my best to just purrrrr for all the people fussing over me. They raised lots of money to help with all my medical expenses, but no one ever came forward to claim me.

They made me wear lots of funny bandages and cones and bumpers around my neck, they called me "stoic" and "sweet" and "handsome" then one day they gave me a home of my own! Finally, out of the cage! Out of the cone! I'm not sure what happened but they weren't in love with me and before I knew it I was back in the shelter AGAIN.

But, then they found me a foster home where I can stretch out in the window and day dream about a FUREVER home that's really all my own! I don't mind sharing either, I get along with girl cats (meow!) and I can deal with another boy cat too (but I'm pretty handsome so just be warned). My foster mom has a medium sized dog and I don't mind him much either! I dream of wet food, water fountains, and warm beds. Scratches behind my ears and all over my belly! Maybe they'll even massage some coconut oil on my tight skin wounds for me?! And tell me how handsome I am all the time!
