Excalibur is the holy grail of cats. He loves to romp with other cats, but
is always happy to nap in your lap after head scratches and a cuddle. He is
inquisitive and enjoys exploring and finding hidden toys. He is king of the
house and you will find it hard to resist his playful nature and friendly
Excalibur is a very special boy! He's only got 3 legs and is still learning
how to navigate with the recent amputation. Our veterinarians had to remove
1 rear leg because he had a painful problem with his kneecap. His other
rear leg has a similar issue, and while it's not currently causing
problems, his adopter will need to be prepared to potentially have more
surgery for him in the future. Ideally he will do physical therapy to keep
that leg strong and healthy!
Age: 3 years
Reason for surrender: found as stray
Animal ID#: A33135431
Excalibur is living in foster care. Please email his foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about him!
If you live more than an hour away, please apply online by emailing email@example.com .
