Meow! My name is Handsome
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Handsome was severely abused by someone with a warped mind. His front leg was broken and then wired up against his chest where the bones healed with his leg in a drawn up unusable position. The wire cut through his flesh and it became infected. This loveable even-tempered guy was shown on the Nat. Geo. Wild program on the Cat House. Cat House staff were forced to amputate the infected leg to save his life. Handsome does not complain about anything, he is just happy to be alive and happy to have people who love him who he can love back. We would offer him for adoption as a special needs kitty but he has tested positive for feline aids (FIV), probably another result of the abuse he suffered. He will live with us for the rest of his life and he would like to have a sponsor.

The Cat House on the Kings is California's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center located on 12 acres along the Kings River in Parlier, California, which is in the central San Joaquin Valley, southeast of Fresno.
At The Cat House, our mission is to:
1) provide a no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats and kittens for the State of California, primarily serving the Central Valley;
2) facilitate the adoption of cats (primarily), dogs and other rescued animals into safe, loving, healthy and permanent homes;
3) educate the public on how to become directly involved in improving the quality of animal welfare;
4) offer low cost spay and neuter referrals.
You may visit The Cat House Thursday through Monday, 1-4 pm, by appointment only. We also have an off-site adoption center located inside Petco at 4144 N. Blackstone at Ashlan in Fresno, which is open Sun-Fri 9am-5:30pm and Saturday 10am-5:00pm.
All cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for fleas and ear mites, tested for FELV/FIV and microchipped. You must fill out an adoption application and talk directly with one of our adoption coordinators. An adoption contract must be signed at time of adoption.
