Pretty Boy was abandoned in an industrial area many years ago with his food dish! Thankfully, several ladies were already caring for the other abandoned cats and fed him and got him fixed. Earlier this year, he began to eat less and they worried about his teeth. I started working with CC4C 2 years ago because I was saddened by seeing new cats dumped here. I took him home with me and had dental work done for him. Unfortunately, he also tested FIV+, which means I really needed to find him an indoor home where he’d be safe.
Since he’s been outside for over 5 years, a home was daunting for him. He would hide under the bed during the day, but would sleep on top of it at night when I could go in and pet him. He’d purr, and roll around, happy as ever to be loved again. He just needed time and patience.
A wonderfully patient gentleman adopted him on the Maddie’s Fund weekend. He wanted an older companion cat– which is exactly what Pretty Boy will be once he adjusts. His new adopter has been bribing him with turkey and pastrami. I am so happy that a compasionate person came along to give Pretty Boy a second chance at a better, safer, and happier life.
