Willy is a grey classic tabby with the characteristic "swirls" instead of stripes on his side. Willy recently came to Last Hope with an eye injury. Critter Crusaders sponsored Willy's vet care and his injured eye was recently surgically removed.
Willy bounced back quickly and overall, is a very healthy boy. Willy has tested positive for Feline Leukemia (FeLV), which has the potential to shorten his life, but despite the hype about FeLV, many vets will tell you that this disease does NOT have to be a death sentence. Cats with FeLv can live long, full, healthy lives with proper care and nutrition. Because FeLV can be spread from one cat to another through contact with saliva or bodily fluids, Willy does need to be an only cat (indoor only cat), or live with other cats that also are FeLV positive. FeLV cannot be transmitted to humans or other animals besides cats. Willy's lab otherwise indicate a younger adult cat in good health. We think he deserves the opportunity to live out a full life in a happy home, don't you?
You'd never know this sweet and friendly 5-6 year old boy boy ever had to live on the streets, as he doesn't have an ounce of meanness in him. This cuddly guy loves to sit in your lap, get rubbed behind the ears and gently rub his face in your hands and purr his gratitude for the good food and gentle vet care he has been receiving. He is a charmingly gentle-hearted and loving kitty. He would love nothing more than to have a forever home to live out his days with a warm lap to snuggle in, warm patches of sunshine, and a human best friend.
Willy is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He needs an indoor only home. Please contact Jody at 319.241.0966, or visit Witty Kitties' website for more information about adopting Willy.
