found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Harvey and his brother Stanley are known as the MIdnight Persians.
They were driven 5 hours to me in the bed of an open pickup truck. !
They arrived late and the driver and I ended up meeting in the Santa
Cruz CVS drug store parking lot. At Midnight. The CVS was open and
the well lit lot turned out to be the gathering place for all the
local street life. The transfer of persian cats- each held up out of
a carrier and kissed- was the most interesting event to take place
there in months. Yikes! I was afraid we would end up chasing them
around the parking lot. Who says the life of a cat rescuer is not
exciting.It was a satisfying night's work.
The story was that a breeder had given these cats to this woman who
quickly realized she could not keep them. They are wonderful cats but
they arrived a bit "scuffed up" as it were. We bathed them and under
the mud on their feet we found urine stains.They were probably in a
cage in the backyard. The thing about unneutered males is that they
smell to high heaven and are kept out back where their smell is
isolated.We got them fixed as soon as we could.
They both gained a couple pounds right away. At some point in their
history they must have been hungry because they are a little manic
about food. They still have not learned to eat wet food.
Harvey is the bigger of the two. He was friendly and outgoing from
day one.Such a sweetie with his silky fur and vute little pink tongue..
Stanley was in the worst shape and was also shyer and more
traumatized. He would pull away from you fearfully and then when you
forced your affections upon him he would melt and say "oh yes".. Now
he just loves everything. He has come round very quickly. He is a
very unusual cat with his blue eyes. You NEVER see blue eyes on a
grey and white persian cat. He also has a white tip to his tail
called a Paint brush tail. Super cute.
Their adopter, Vicki, is thrilled with them and will take over their
medical needs. Stanley still has crud in the crevices on his face
that needs daily ointment. They both should have a fecal test and so
forth. She said "it is like a tag team - let me take it from here
and go help Gizmo." ( Gizmo is a wonderful very raggeddy black and
white Persian we just got in ) So anyway they went home sooner than
expected and that is why I am just now posting them so everyone can
see how adorable they and and what a happy ending they have had.
Their foster mom was Harriet in Santa Cruz.
