Facts about Apollo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Apollo is a very sweet 5 year old boy who we rescued from a very bad situation. He came to us from a home that had taken him in as a stray at a year of age. For reasons unknown, this poor boy had to live the last four years tethered to a small couch with only enough line to reach his litter box and dishes. Since the litter box and his living area were not cleaned daily, he developed severe skin rashes on his backend and also became overweight due to lack of exercise and poor diet. In addition, he developed badly infected teeth that needed critical vet care.

Not only would he need to be sedated to clean up his skin rashes, he needed extensive teeth cleaning with 7 tooth extractions; three of which were badly abscessed K9s. The vet thought that this was caused by chewing. No doubt in an effort to get free of that tether or from boredom. Now that he is all healed, this boy is the SWEETEST cat, healthy, happy and ready for his forever home!

Apollo would do best in a home as an only cat or with another cat who will be able to handle Apollo’s rough playing. Since he was tethered and not able to interact with other cats in his previous home, he tends to be a little strong-willed when it comes to play.

Although shy at first, Apollo adores attention and loves to be held and cuddle. He also loves to hang out on the cat scratcher and watch the wildlife outside. We’re still working on getting his weight down but with a healthy diet and continued exercise, he’ll get there in time.

Apollo has been neutered, tested negative for Feline Leukemia/FIV, and has been vaccinated. He is also very good about using his litter box and scratching post. He will be microchipped before he goes to his new home. His adoption fee is $120 + tax.

We are a foster based rescue. Please contact us to set up a time to meet this wonderful cat!

About No Kitten Left Behind-MN

About Our Rescue Group...

No Kitten Left Behind-MN was founded in 2009 by two friends who set out to help a colony of cats near Annandale, MN. We have since grown to help countless others through rescue, education and assistance with a variety of other needs.

We are a small, all-volunteer, foster based rescue dedicated to helping cats and kittens in need. We provide them with any necessary medical care and adopt them into caring and life-long homes. Our rescue provides a stable, loving environment in which these gentle animals can be cared for until we find their forever homes.

No Kitten Left Behind - MN is a strong advocate of no-kill and we have recently become a non-profit organization. Donations and foster homes are always needed to continue our mission.

We thank you for supporting this massive effort to provide for the less fortunate so there is No Kitten Left Behind.
