Meet Nigel!! First of all, his adoption fee has been payed! This sweet boy has won our hearts! He was found roaming free and never claimed. He was previously adopted from another rescue and now this poor boy is looking for another home. He must live inside only in a home with no cats OR inside only with other FIV positive cats, as he is FIV positive. His condition doesn't slow him down! He is unable to be in the large cat room, so it's very important he find a home where he has space to be a cat!April 13, 2024, 4:52 pm

Story
Named Brix because he was born outside by a community cat mom in a narrow space between two brick buildings. Brix is a beautiful, sweet boy with very plush fur. Brix moves differently than other cats. He has strength in his legs but there is a delay between the signals from his brain to his back legs. Because of this, when he runs or walks fast, his back legs don't coordinate with his front legs and his rear end swings around. But he doesn't realize anything is different! He plays and jumps and runs like any other cat. He has been seen by multiple vets, including a neurologist at Mizzou, and there is no obvious sign of why this is happening. If you would like to meet this amazing cat, please contact me.
