Back by popular demand, we have launched our Christmas Cat Sponsorship drive!
Just in time for Christmas, we have our own Elf-On-A-Shelf cat!
If you would like to sponsor Elf (our cat), or give a gift of sponsorship, please email [email protected]
for details. Sponsorship packages include a bio on Elf, his photo, a fridge magnet to display it, and our Fall newsletter. It makes a fun and affordable gift.
Now here is Elf’s story:
Elf appeared at a country home in the summer of 2017 but he was wary, skittish, and not at all sure about human contact. Fast forward 7 months, and colder weather, and lo and behold, Elf wanted “in”. He even put aside his wariness of humans and about 3 weeks, entered his feeder’s home!
Don’t let those damaged ears and that battle warn look fool you! He had a very rough life to survive but since coming in to care, he has become a cuddly and loving cat, adored by his foster family.
However, his first trip to the Vets for assessment revealed some serious health and dental issues. He has been assessed at about 1 ½ years old and seems to have known human contact---we surmise that he has been “dumped” in the country as he has not been neutered and requires some expensive medical care to bring him up to optimum health. Some of the medical care that he will require are treatment of parasites, worms, and ear mites, vaccines, neutering, dental work and his eye has a large cataract, that may require future care.
