My nickname is Claudio, although I was named after the French sculptor, Camille Claudel. I had a tough time outside. I had a terrible upper respiratory infection - my eyes and nose were running, I couldn't breathe very well, and I had a difficult time eating. Thankfully I was brought inside, and taken to the vet for care. I had to go on antibiotics, and because I was sick, I was isolated. That was the worst part. I was used to being with my friends and family outside, and then all of a sudden, I was isolated in a new environment. Thankfully I got better quickly, and am now a very healthy cat.
I am another one of handsome orange / fawn, long-haired red-head brothers of the Group of 40, just about a year old. While I was in "isolation", my caregiver befriended me and I appreciated being patted. I am friendly and outgoing, once I trust you. Now that I am all energetic and healthy, I love to play. I would love to be adopted with one of my brothers or friends from outside into a permanent home. We would even appreciate a long-term foster home - while we wait for our permanent home.
We all get along very well with other cats, and will likely bond to them faster than to you! Will you please help us - so we don't have to go back outside and face sickness, starvation and frostbite?
