|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Kitten|
This handsome tabby kitty is Shakespeare. He came to Tenth Life in November 2012. Shakespeare and his brother, Mozart, were rescued by police from a very abusive situation. The former owner had repeatedly kicked and thrown both kitties against a wall. They were in very bad shape with multiple injuries when they were taken in by County Animal Control. Luckily for them, County Animal Control spent a month taking care of their physical injuries and Tenth Life has come in to help with any emotional injuries by showing them safety, love and care until they find their forever home. Surprisingly, Shakespeare has shown no signs of timidness or fear since entering his Foster home. He is a very affectionate, laid back, and loveable kitty who you would never know had come from an abusive situation based on his personality. He acts very relaxed and social at all adoption events and is always front and center for attention. As a result of the abuse, his lower lip does come down a little more than normal, but he has no issues with it and it doesn’t affect his eating. He also experienced eye trauma that caused one eye to have to be removed. His remaining eye is a little cloudy so he might have some slight vision issues, but he gets around completely fine and requires no special accommodations. He loves playing with his toys and his brother, Mozart, and will follow you around “trilling” for attention. He is slightly more mellow than his brother and will be the first to curl up on you for a nap. Shakespeare would do best in a home without really young children who might pull on his tail or be rough with him. Shakespeare would also do great in a home with other cats and dogs and is used to both currently in his foster home. Shakespeare and his brother, Mozart, have been through a lot together and seem quite bonded so they need to go to their forever home together. Shakespeare is a special little sweetheart who has been through a lot and deserves a loving and wonderful forever home. approx DOB May 2012
Rescue Group Info...
Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.
Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
