Breaking and Entering

Yep, Wilson has a record –breaking and entering.  But it is a sad record.  He belonged to a senior citizen who died last December.   Nobody could take him in, so Wilson did what he had to do to survive.  At first it was just begging on porches.  He’d paw the door to be let in.  Sometimes neighbors put food out, but he rapidly lost weight because raccoons  and other neighbor cats ate the food too.  When the weather got warmer, he took matters into his own paws and began breaking into homes.  He discovered that window and porch screens could be popped or scratched out.  And neighbors would discover him eating their indoor cat’s food and sleeping on their beds.  That would melt most cat-lovers hearts, but it made the home-owners angry because of the screen damage and they didn’t want a cat with fleas and ear-mites in their home.  So he was repeatedly tossed outside.  When we found out about him, we volunteered to take care of his medical needs if a foster home was found.    A kind woman stepped forward to keep him temporarily. When she went to pick him up, she found that the homeowner had taped him up in a box and left him on her front lawn.  The Community Cat Coalition stepped up and paid for blood work and a dental (4 teeth pulled) and Cat Tales had him vaccinated, microchipped and treated his horrible ear mites.  Our vet said he’s been suffering for a long time with these, and that is why his ears are curly.  😦  This poor boy got the short straw in life, and we just want the rest of his years to full of love and security.  He’s an affectionate and mellow boy who wants nothing but love.  He gets along with other cats once introduced, but would also do fine as an only cat.  Email in you are interested in fostering or adopting this handsome fellow.  He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for fleas, worms and mites and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.   No adoption fee for foster homes who choose to adopt him.
