Facts about Hank

  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10580025-H-071116-1P

HISTORY: HANK and his sister LOUISA were found by a kind person when they were only a few days old and struggling to survive.  They have been bottle fed by our Felines & Friends volunteers. LOUISA thrived and was subsequently adoption.  However, HANK continued to have bouts of diarrhea and was not growing.  It was determined that HANK was born without a sphincter and had developed a chronic infection. In December 2016, he was taken to a specialist at VCA in Albuquerque who performed several delicate surgeries to address these issues.  HANK is on a two daily medications and is now thriving.  It is unknown how long he will require these medications. Since he sometimes leaves small formed poop on the floor, he needs a home with little to no carpet and a person who doesn't mind cleaning up a little after him.  
TEMPERAMENT: HANK is full of energy and loves to play with any kitten he meets so has helped socialize several feral kittens.  His current companion is DAMARIS.  HANK is a handsome boy with a short coat and brown tabby markings.
