8/7/17 Update: Carlos was so sick when he got to us from the shelter that we were worried he wouldn't survive, but a double course of the right antibiotics turned him around. He is an outgoing, playful and energetic big boy who enjoys attention and who loves to arm wrestle. Although he's as gentle as a cat with sharp claws and teeth can be, he will grab onto your arm to play and for this reaosn we wouldn't recommend him for a home with young kids. Carlos is a feisty boy with other cats and dogs, not aggressive but he stands his ground and will get along fine with those who don't try to push him aorund. Better pictures coming soon.
Carlos is as sweet as can be! This 2 year old orange & white kitty arrived at a Philly shelter with a wound on his leg, but happily, it was clipped and cleaned here and he is feeling much better. Unfortunately, he came down with a cold and is now in foster care being treated for that. Can you be little Carlos's hero?
