A very special cat: this is Mikey. He is a beautiful neutered male tabby about one year old with very special needs. He was hit by a car and found by an employee at Graymoor in Garrison NY who brought him to Putnam Felines. Mikey was just 8 months old and was believed to have been abandoned and living with a feral colony on the Graymoor grounds. His left front leg was hanging limp and he dragged it as he walked and ran.
An examination under anesthesia by our vet revealed injuries too vast to repair. Mikey's leg had to be removed and he would never be able to return to his former life outside with his friends.
Because he is young and there is a quality about Mikey that we had seen before in “abandoned not feral” cats, we brought him into foster care. He is responding very nicely and eating treats from my hand.
The next step for Mikey is a new family who will take over where we leave off. They will continue to care for him and form a bond of trust. When he is ready for surgery (in about three weeks) Putnam Felines will pay for all surgical expenses.
The family that adopts Mikey will have saved an innocent and very beautiful life. In return they will receive love from a place deep in the nature of this animal that had lived between the world of wild creatures and the uncomfortable, yet familiar world of the humans who had abandoned him.
All of our cats and kittens are delivered spayed or neutered, with all age appropriate immunizations, free of parasites, tested for FIV and Leukemia and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $95
