Poor Alejandro was hit by a car and had to have his leg amputated. He is living in the comforts of a foster home while he waits for a forever home. He is currently in a foster home. To arrange a meet and greet, please email, jpasfosterEB@gmail.com
His foster says, 'This boy is a true warrior, it has only been 6 weeks since his front leg needed to be amputated after a dog viciously attacked him, but this guy is fully recovered now, thriving and loving life! He is a sweet sweet boy who LOVES his food. Alejandro saves his excitement for breakfast and dinner time; during the day he is a very calm cat. He will find the perfect most cozy spot at your home and lay down for hours; taking naps is his favorite activity. He likes to be brushed and pet while on his favorite spot or on your lap but not so much to be picked up yet. He feels a little awkward up high without all his landing skills. He does not jump up but that might change with time once he gets more used to his new condition. So far, he has been using some pet stairs to get on and off the sofa or the bed (he loves those stairs). Ribbons are his thing to play with since he can sit on his back legs and play without chasing something. With some practice, he has finally figured out the litter box with one arm and how to cover after himself. I would recommend a large litter box for him since he has to turn and turn on different angles to be able bury. He is perfectly getting along with a small dog and with other cats, though he will negotiate territory just as any other cat would do.'
