NO ADOPTION FEE ON ALEC FOR PRE-APPROVED ADOPTERS!
This is Alec. Alec is a very sweet and scrawny little cat. He loves to be held and kneads into the air in the most endearing way. He has one small eye which he cannot see out and we think he is at least 9 or 10 years old. He is very laid back and easy-going with other cats.
Alec was one of 42 (?) cats from a hoarding situation who ended up at the city shelter. We were asked to take Alec to help him recover from his ordeal.
Alec was originally so weak when he came to BARCS that he could not stand. He is now getting around with some difficulty using his back legs.
Our theory is that he was crated for a very long time, possibly due to a Urinary Tract Infection, causing him to lose muscle mass. He has sores on the bottom of his back 'knees' probably from sitting for long periods. Alec had an advanced UTI which had progressed to his kidneys, causing their function to suffer. After a very long course of antibiotics his kidney function is now back in normal range, although he is still receiving fluids every other day and eating K/D kidney food.
