We don’t do this very often.
We try to answer your general questions about pet care and pet issues and we try not to get personal about our own animals. But, today we are making an exception.
This is about Chester.
He was found abandoned and cowering in a basement with a badly infected paw.
His paw has been treated and is healing nicely, although he has a slight limp. Chester! Get it?
He has progressed from a very frightened and mistrustful boy to one who wants
attention and affection and lots of it.
He was also starting to fit in with his foster family’s other two foster cats and their dog when suddenly he started arguing vociferously with the other male cat. Bummer.
So now he is in temporary quarters at the Humane Society’s office – but that is no place for a cat.
He is making the best of it, greeting staff and visitors enthusiastically and leaping from one high perch to another.
Forget the limp!
But he obviously can’t stay there and he needs a home without another male cat.
He needs it now!
And isn’t he just a handsome fella?
Please contact Barb at 315-343-2959 for more information on adopting Chester.
He is neutered and up to date with shots.
There is an adoption fee to help defray a portion of the average $152 in veterinary care that the Humane Society spends for each cat that it rescues.
But he will be worth every penny.
Speaking of cool cats – Coming up soon.
