Very Handsome & Sweet DSH Butterscotch & White Special Needs Young Male
Chester is a very handsome 3 and 1/2 yr old adult male short-haired white with orange tabby mask and markings. We rescued him from a shelter where he was going to be put down due to lack of space. We are so glad we saved him because he has so much personality and is extremely sweet, friendly and playful. Upon initial examinatin it was discovered that he had a broken pelvis that was not mentionedin any of his previous records. Due to this, he is special needs. He has some mild paralysis in his pelvis and tail and a small amount of nerve damage to his anal sphincter so he sometimes needs help with emptying his bowels. He usually does well on his own, but needs some help every few days, which he tolerates very well. He has been improving with time and we hope that continues to heal even more. He does great with his ever changing feline roommates. He is so sweet and relaxed, he would probably adjust fine to a cat-friendly dog. He does fine with children, but needs to avoid younger children who might try to pick him up which would not be good for him. He is one of the cats we've had the longest and he really needs a home. Come meet our special boy.

We are dedicated to finding loving families for homeless animals. We provide humane, quality care and shelter for all animals we receive. We are part of a network of caring people that reaches far and wide and work with local organizations in the metro Denver ommitted to educating the public on responsible pet ownership and to promoting the spay/neuter message. We will also emphasize the cruelty of declawing.
We accept (and provide medical care and rehabilitation for) many cats that other shelters would put-down or not accept such as FeLV, FIV positive cats, senior, diabetic and cats with other disabilities and illnesses.
