This is Sammy. Sammy was a stray that was hanging around my place all summer and was sick with an URI. I trapped him in October, had him neutered, shots, de-wormed and treated for his infection. My intent was to re-release him as I thought he was totally feral. When I had him at the vets they told me he was not aggressive so I moved him to a small room off my garage to recuperate. It took 1 month of antibiotics to clear the URI and by that time the cold weather had set in and I didn’t have the heart to put him back outside. I had him tested in November (snap test) for feline leukemia and he tested positive. I intend to have him re-tested in the next several weeks in case the first result was a false positive. I already have 3 rescues and cannot responsibly take care of him. My husband is also disabled and I do not have the time to spend with him. I have been working with him for 4 months (I only have 1 hour a day to spend with him). He was extremely scared and untrusting when I first brought him inside but has made great progress with the little time I have to spend with him. He deserves a loving home where he can roam free and not be locked in a room all day. If you have the time, love, patience and experience with semi-ferals please consider offering this little fellow a forever home.
