UPDATE: Someone contacted Hal's Haven because they fell in love with me. I responded but never heard back from them. Here is my response to their inquiry:
Your inquiry almost brought me to tears. I am such a wonderful boy who just needs love and time to adjust (now that I am no longer in pain).
Although I have recouperated I still think I am meant to be a gourmet and eat Elegant Medleys but will eat the slop they call canned food (of other varieties) and dry food - if I must (paw flung over forehead fainting for emphasis). I have become a bit of a character now that I feel better. Just last night I made a super hero jump over a 90 pound dog - not because he would hurt me nor because I needed to get by him but just because I can.
My adoption fee is $75. I am feline leukemia and FIV negative, neutered, up to date on shots, dewormed, treated with Revolution and will be microchipped. I will also not require any dental work in the future :). My foster mom loves me and would love to see me in a home with more individual attention and love. She has attached an application for you to complete and return.
I was dropped over the fence at the local animal shelter when they were closed. It took the lady there two weeks and lots of canned food before I trusted her enough to let her pet me. After I arrived at Hal's Haven they took me in to have a hernia repaired. While doing the surgery the vet noticed that I have Stomatis (I have a bad reaction to any plaque on my teeth). I was treated wtih antibiotics and did really well until January when my foster mom noticed I was loosing weight. The stomatis was back with a vengence and I was in so much pain I was not eating enough. Thanks to a lot of very kind individuals the money was raised to have my teeth pulled. The surgery was brutall (the vet said so)! My teeth crumbled when they tried to pull them so they had to do more extensive surgery to remove the roots. During my recovery I discovered I am a gourmet. I love Fancy Feast Elegant Medley's. Nothing else is as good.
I am feeling better now. I actually like to be petted - sometimes. I hurt for so long I am still leary at first. Once you pet me I ask for more.
