Mufasa's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Mufasa's Story...
Let me start off by saying we are open to suggestions on a name for this guy. We call him Knee Guy because he had an interesting condition when we got him - a luxated patella. A luxated patella? you say. Well, a luxated patella basically means that his knee cap popped to the side because the ligament (or tendon, I always get those mixed up) could no longer hold the patella in place because his thigh muscle is basically gone due to starvation - his other condition. He weighed 6 1/2 pounds when he arrived (3/10). He knee has been properly aligned, and hopefully, it will stay that way

He is the sweetest boy though. He can't decide if he's more interested in eating and purring, rubbing on people and purring, or getting brushed and purring. He was definitely somebody's guy, and we would sure love to know his story. We can only imagine how he came to be in the condition he's in. He will be ready for adoption once he weighs 10-12 pounds (and gets tested and vaccinated - stay tuned for updates on that as we'll be testing him long before he's strong enough for vaccines). That way, he'll be in good enough shape for his new parents to finish the job. We are pre-adopting now, but please be aware, he is not out the woods yet. He is extremely emaciated, and while he clearly has the will to live, his body has to be able to gain weight.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mufasa, a Brighton Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Brighton, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Brighton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Brighton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Brighton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Brighton paves the way for another one to be saved.
