BCAR Rusty 2

A Senior Gentleman

On Disharoon Drive, for two days Kathy Koch heard a cat meowing. She looked but could not see it, called but it did not come. Then on the third day she saw the cat in a neighbor’s driveway. When she called that time he came running to her. He was an emaciated ginger cat, a very hungry boy. Kathy fed him cans of tuna she had in her pantry and contacted BCAR. It was a weekend so we could not take him in immediately. Kittens and cats must be tested for FIV and feline leukemia - two very contagious feline diseases - before they can be taken into Maggie’s House, the feline rescue shelter of BCAR.

Kathy sheltered him for the weekend, then took him to our vet on Monday morning where he was tested and given a thorough check up. His test results were negative for disease so he was vaccinated and given a topical flea treatment. We named him Rusty and he moved into Maggie’s House. Our vet determined he was a senior gentleman cat, between 10 and 15 years old. He had been neutered previously, so at some point he belonged to someone. He weighed only 6 lbs. Amazingly for his age and condition he was in good health. He is a very laid back, sweet, and lovable cat. He has gained weight and is so happy to have a warm bed and plenty to eat. He loves to be held and brushed.

Rusty is now available for adoption. He will be a wonderful companion for someone who is looking for a calm and loving feline. He gets along very well with all of our other cats in the shelter. Big Canoe Animal Rescue holds open house every Saturday from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm. Please visit us to meet all of our available animals, both dogs and cats.
