SWEET DOCILE WILLIAM
This young cat was at death's door only 4 months ago, and luckily he found a friend to help reach us. The day after he was given to us, and seen by a vet, we were told he needed emergency surgery to correct a dental injury that was so extensive, the toxins being released into his frail body would kill him in only another 24-48 hours! Thankfully PURR Rescue, in Lakewood, WA. stepped forward with the initial $200.00 Further tests, medications, and treatment have pushed this young fellow's cost of rehabilitation over $700 now, but he's finally there !
He is a quiet and personable fellow, with a just ADORABLE slight neurological deficit that he sits up straight, when you approach him, and his head bobbles all around. It means he is happy, and excited, and once he stands, or you pet him it seems to dissapear, but I will be adding a video very soon, because it makes him so very unique, no doubt about it.
He appears to interact well with other non agressive felines, as he is currently residing with 10 in our community house! He tends to stand back and watch the commotion rather than be part of it, but seeks out affection very quickly upon me entering the house and sitting down. He is quite non-assuming, and not pushy. He would do well with an older or younger family, but very small children might not be best, as he does seem to retreat a bit during loud bits of activity such as vacuuming, or when several people are around, but he doesnt hide.
Will now eats dry as well as canned food, and shows no ill effects from his ordeal.
4/13/11-In April we were following a very slow path for Will's gum tissue to fully heal, and had to use a new antibiotic that he was thankfully not resistant to. During his first weeks with us, he developed horrible skin leisons due likely to a flea allergy, and all the infection that had been pouring into his body from a very severe oral injury (possibly from trying to eat out of a sharp can) his laceration across the upper gumline went deep into the tooth roots, and on the streets, without any treatment, his slight, 7# frame was ravaged. About a month after his main extractions, some small bone fragments surfaced, and that is what this latest healing time was for.
To adopt Will, you must have a current and established vet history, and the ability to continue his care, should he later need attention. All of his teeth were removed, except he retained his canines (his fangs). He very much enjoys frisies pate` in many flavors.
He takes interest in other cats he sees from his cage in isolation, and he has shown no aggression or hissing, we feel he will be an easy going cat, who will blend well with other non-agressive felines. He is very quiet, never making a peep unless I am late for kibble time, and then he resorts to making sad sounding song, to make me feel guilty, and aware, that unlike the others, HE has no dry kibble to lessen his hunger should I be late.
Someone, sometime, somewhere, cared for him, as he was neutered at a young age, and with his acceptance of care, he had been shown affection. No owner cme forward to claim him, despite weeks of advertising. The area has a high rate of rental turnover, so it seems he might have been left behind to fare for himself, (which went badly) instead of being placed with a responsible shelter or rescue, such a sad fate he was headed for.
All of that is behind him now, thanks to small amounts of continuing support made to our vet account at Broadway Animal Hospital, although currently he will be the last surgery case our little rescue can manage until our previous obligations are paid back to this amazing and generous clinic who has cared for those who we could not have saved without them and their team.
We focus on placing our rehabilitated cats and kittens in caring, responsible INDOOR ONLY homes. Potential adoptors should email us for an adoption application, and tell us a little about the life you can offer one of these wonderful felines. You will also need to supply the name and phone number of your veterinarian, as well as contact them to give your permission for us to ask our few questions. We will be happy to arrange a visit for you, once approved to meet our amazing and lucky kitties!
You may contact Melody at 509-760-4910 with questions about Will, but please do not call to ask about placing a guest with us, we are unable to accept anyone at this time, however, you may always write us for consideration, or for us to help with rescue placement elsewhere. Please understand we get many, many requests and we answer as quickly as we can.
Adoption fee for William is $125 which includes the cost of FeLv/FiV testing, a small amount to our surgery fund, microchip, worming and vaccinations ( including rabies).
This is only a fraction of the more than $700 spent to save this amazing young cat.
