Rakesh is a charmer who has a happy spirit. He's very smart and is trained to walk on a leash. We estimate he was born in 2011. He was found as a stray near the Blue Moon Saloon in Louisiana. He tests positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). He came to Best Friends with a terribly sore mouth, but we pulled his teeth and he's much more comfortable now. This bayou boy is looking for a home where he can get plenty of catnip and brisk combings.
