Bart was trying his best to survive outdoors as a stray- for what seemed quite a long time. He was one of the most emaciated cats we've ever rescued. He was starving and lonely. Rescued by A4A, Bart warmed up quickly in his foster home. He loved other cats and dogs. He loved his foster parents. His tail was always held high, despite the tough past he'd had. He trusted us, gained much needed weight, learned to play with cat toys and with others. His eyes had a sparkle! AND THEN...We *thought* Bart found a happily-ever-after. We were thrilled the day Bart was adopted (into what we believed and were told would be a forever home for this special guy). However, 8 months later Bart's adopter returned him to A4A stating the following as her reasons: "Bart got chubby and he sleeps a lot." We were sad for Bart, knowing how hard it is on pets to be moved from home to home. We welcomed him back to A4A only to find that he had been front declawed. His paws were causing him a great deal of pain, making it difficult to walk. In addition, Bart was returned to us, incredibly terrified.His condition was rated as "poor" upon his return. NOTE: Bart's paws are now healed and he is happy, and healthy.
He is VERY shy, but also very sweet. He needs a loving forever home that has at least one other cat and a home that is patient and understanding of his shyness. If you have company over to visit, he will hide. Bart does like to be petted and scratched behind the ears, however, he is still incredibly scared and does not easily trust people- although when he does, he is a sweetheart. Would you like to meet/adopt Bart? He hopes to find a loving *forever* home to call his own!
