Special Needs Cats Need Special Homes

Sweet personalities have no mitigating effect on the suffering of the animals that arrive at our facilities on a daily basis. Each of these cats arrived unable to walk normally, but for two different reasons.

Curious George, named by staff for his constant curiosity about what goes on in the medical ward, has two broken hips. He was brought in as an injured stray from Newark, barely able to walk, and that, in much pain. About 3 years old, he lies patiently in his cage, waiting for the kisses and pets staff stops by to give on a regular basis. But most importantly, George's big day is today, Nov. 11th, when he will be receiving surgery on his hips, hopefully providing him the opportunity of walking normally once again. The young male will convalesce with us, hoping his wait will culminate in a loving home. His File # is Med. 42026-M.

It's Bond .... James Bond. Medical Dept. staff was struck by the dashing allure of this young male in his tuxedo coat, and named him after the famous adventurer. But James Bond doesn't always move about in a very agile way, as he has neurological problems, which affect his coordination. It is believed he has cerebellar disease, which is similar to Parkinson's in humans, and that he will always be this way. He remains for continued observation, but is available for adoption. The young male will need a loving home with older children only, gentle animals,. and not too many stairs. Could this very affectionate and dashing fellow bring some adventure into your life? File# Med. 41818-M.

Our ResQ Fund covers specialized surgery, long-term care for illness, and emergency medical care. Please help us continue to help deserving animals like these two sweethearts, and support our ResQ Fund.  If interested in adopting either of these extra-sweet, special-needs cats, please contact us.
