A Special Needs Stray Needs a Special HomePosted: September 19, 2011
Our friends at FosterCat tell us that Parker still needs a home! Not only is he a special needs kitty, with just a slight tremor to his head, he’s also being fed and cared for outdoors in a colony of stray cats. Let’s get Parker inside for the winter!
From the time he was a kitten, Parker has had some neurological problems, really just amounting to a tremor in his head.
Problem is, Parker lives in a managed stray and feral colony, and according to the manager the area is not entirely safe since neighbors have been trapping cats and taking them to be euthanized. While they protect the colony from this, Parker is at special risk.
He is neutered and given basic veterinary care. The veterinarian said he may outgrow the condition, and in fact it seems to be getting better as he gets older. Being a stray they did not pursue the exact cause, but the colony manager doesn’t want to see him outside over winter because of his condition.
Parker is about a year old, is a sweet, friendly little guy who’s had all his vaccinations and will be FeLV tested if someone agrees to adopt him.
If you know of anyone who would be willing to give this little guy a home, please call Denise Charmillo on 412-421-7534.
