This is Mikie, he is a big boy but so loving. Mikie has had a ruff start to his young life, he was an outside kitten and some how got his right rear leg injured, but he was just limping a bit, we did a TNR on the colony back in March of this year.
Acouple months later we got a call that Mikie was attacked probably by a dog and that same back leg was now mangled. Poor Mikie had to have that leg amputated.
But Mikie is doing well now and getting around pretty good, but he grew really fast so he is still learning to get around on 3 legs with his new big size.
Mikie also has a close friend her name is Smokepaw, she is just a kitten and very shy but she loves Mikie and Mikie has vowed to protect his little friend. We are hoping someone will adopt both together. You can see by the 4th picture how close these two really are.
Mikie is looking for a loving home with someone who can help him adjust to being a fully inside house cat. He still yurns to be outside but he can not get around safely enough. He is so sweet and loves to be petted and loved on, he will sit in your lap or next to you and he does give little love nibbles.
He loves belly rubs too! He is a little skiddish when being held as he thinks he is going to the vet again, but we are trying to show him that every time he is picked up doesn't mean off somewhere scary.
He is not aggressive and gets along with all our cats, he is such a good boy
Please come and visit Mikie and show him that he is a beautiful cat and you want him to join your family forever.

And of course all the nice people at PetSmart will be glad to help you adopt me here at the store. At Altered Feral State, we work with feral cat colonies.
All of our kittens were removed from the colonies and completely socialized when they are less than 8 weeks old. We don't offer them for adoption until they have been tested, vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Our adoption fee of $100. only covers a very small portion of our costs, but to us, it's all about finding the best home for these wonderful kitties.
Altered Feral State is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization made up of volunteers dedicated to reducing the feral cat population through the only non-lethal method that is proven to work. That method is known as TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return).
TNR is only the beginning. Just as important as spay and neuter is the removal of the kittens from the colonies while they are still young enough to be socialized. Feral kittens are removed from the colonies when the mother is just beginning to wean them. Often that means supplementing their feeding with a bottle, but usually not for more than a week or so.
All of our kittens are completely socialized and could not survive outdoors any longer. They have been tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treated for worms, ear mites, all parasites, spayed, neutered and vaccinated. All of our kittens are spayed or neutered prior to adoption in an effort to help reduce the cat population and be part of the solution, not the problem.
We are at PetSmart in Bethlehem /Winder, GA (off 316) for adoptions 7 days a week
You can see our cats/ kittens over in the cat section of the store, lounging around in their hammocks or crusing the cubicals.
An adoption application is required before any adoption is considered.
Our adoption contract requires that all cats adopted from us will live indoors and may NOT be declawed. All of our adoptable cats/kittens are fully vetted - Felv/FIV tested, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Our adoption fee is $100.
