Will you help change things for me? I need a forever home!

My name is Dave Davies, and I was a street cat for many, many years. I ate from dumpsters behind a restaurant for years. People kicked me and tried to run over me in their cars. Thankfully, a kind woman also started feeding me. Then I developed an enormous mass in my testicles. I will never forget the agonizing pain and the terror I felt as it worsened every day. I also developed infected bite wounds from fighting with other cats.

As the days went on, I felt worse and worse. The kind woman asked Cat Aid Fund to help, and lots of volunteers started trying to catch me.Finally I felt so badly that I let the people catch me in something called a "drop trap."

The emergency vet found a mass in my testicles---so large that it surrounded my urethra. The vet removed my testicles, and in a very tricky operation removed the tumor from around the urethra. It turns out the tumor was sertoli cancer. They tell me this is very rare in cats. It also makes cats more aggressive because of how it impacts testosterone; that is why I was fighting so much. Thankfully, the emergency vet believes he got all the cancer.

I test positive for FIV, a condition that is very common in street cats who are not neutered. But most cats who are FIV+ can still lead healthy, normal lives.

I have been living in a foster home for the past several months. I love being a house cat and can't get enough love. I will follow you around everywhere like a dog. I want to make up for all the lonely days I spent on my own. I am a senior now, and I would love to spend my golden years purring in your lap.

Will you please do something special for a cat like me who has suffered so much? Please reach out to adopt me. If you take me home, I will purr into your ear for the rest of my life.

About Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Frisky Whiskers Network, Inc. was founded in 2006. We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit cat rescue operating in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. We believe that every cat deserves a chance to have their own human family to know the love and security of a forever home...

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events every weekend from 1-5 pm Saturday and 1-3 pm on Sundays at the Petco store in Kirkwood, Missouri. We also have a few cats who reside at the Petco Kirkwood during the week. (During holidays adoptions are done by appointment only)

To adopt a cat from Frisky Whiskers or to inquire about a particular cat, visit us at an adoption event, email us at, or call us at (636) 343-7106 or TEXT to:(314) 477-9038 & (314)780-3325.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask people fill out an adoption application, and we interview applicants. Our goal is to ensure a good fit between cat and humans. Once we have reviewed the application, we require you to complete an adoption contract.

We do not discriminate against anyone for reasons of race, religion, politics, gender, or sexual orientation, but we reserve the right to refuse an adoption based on information we gain during the application process. We try very hard to match our cats' needs and requirements with applicants' lifestyles and circumstances. Our goal is to make every adoption a happy and lasting one!

Our adoption fees cover vet care for emergencies and medical issues in addition to routine care. Before adoption, all animals receive the following care: spay/neuter, vaccinations for FVCRP & rabies, test for felv/fiv, microchip, and treatment for fleas/parasites.

Adoption fees are as follows: 1) senior cats $95, 2) cats 1-7 $125, and 3) under one year $150. We do not intend to imply that senior cats are less valuable; rather, this fee schedule reflects the fact that senior cats tend to come to us already spayed and neutered.
