Hi, my name is Spencer and boy...do I have a story to tell. Just before Christmas last year I ended up in a shelter and I was in pretty bad shape.
No one wanted to adopt me because I was such a mess and my time was just about to run out when Helping Persian Cats rescued me. Pheeew, that was too close!!! Thank you for saving me!!!
I went straight to the vet and they had their hands full with me.
Both of my eyes had corneal ulcers and one had ruptured, so it couldn't be saved. At the same time my eye was removed I received a badly needed dental and a couple of extractions so my teeth are in good shape now.
I was also diagnosed with a contagious skin condition which meant I had to be medicated, bathed weekly and isolated for a few weeks.
While I was in my foster home in isolation to recover and heal, I soon wrapped my foster mommy around my little heart. She says about me that I am one of the sweetest, most loving, funny and special cats she has ever fostered.
I got so bored but I know it was for the best. I got lots of toys to play with a real cool kitty cd to watch with all kinds of birds and cats etc...and my foster mom gave me daily head scratches and belly rubs. Puuuuurrrrr!!!!
Unfortunately I also tested positive for FIV which means I either carry the virus or might have been vaccinated for it in the past which will always give me a positive result.
FIV can be contagious to other cats but only through deep bite wounds and believe me, I'm a lover boy, not a biter. It's not contagious to other animals and people.
To be better informed about the FIV virus you can read about it here:
I have to say I'm feeling pretty good, and haven't even gotten sick with a kitty cold once in the shelter and during my isolation so that's a good sign.
Once I was all cleared from the vet I was slowly and very carefully introduced to the resident cats one by one and it became quickly apparent that I am so very friendly and good natured that I can be safely around them. Even the grumpy ones can't help but love me.
So I have been playing like crazy and running around with my new buddies Leo and Peanut playing chase. I can run and play like a kitten and love all kind of balls and toys to knock around.
Then when I'm tired I'll go looking for my foster mommy(I trained her to come when I call her) and snuggle up next to her, or if she is not available I try to find another kitty to snuggle with.
I have this cute little chirp that comes out of me any time you touch me or talk to me, it's very endearing and makes my foster mom laugh.
I give the best massages as I love to knead. I also like to be held and be on your lap or next to you.
Anyway, I just had this last little eye surgery done to help me keep my eye open better, my corneal ulcer has healed up and I am now ready to find my forever home.
Be warned though, you will fall head over heels in love with me, because aside of all the health stuff I had to overcome, I am a heartbreaker and will love you lots and entertain you with my funny antics!
I would love to have another kitty to play and snuggle with, but because of my FIV status, my adopter would have to be experienced and willing to do proper and slow introductions and the other cat(s) would need to be friendly and non-aggressive so they don't bite me.
I am also ok as an only cat but need to have lots of toys and snuggle time with my new family.
I'm great with everyone.
Will you love me, puuuurdy please, and give me a safe home? I know you won't be sorry!
