BCAR Rusty

Meet Rusty at BCAR Open House on Saturday, March 16

By Cecilia Fraschillo 

Last September, on Disharoon Drive in Big Canoe, a resident heard a cat meowing for two days. 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. The lady fed him cans of tuna she had in her pantry then contacted BCAR. It was a weekend so we could not take him in immediately. Kittens and cats must be tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLV)—two very contagious feline diseases—before they can be taken into Maggie’s House, the feline rescue shelter of BCAR.

The resident took him to our vet on Monday morning where he was tested and given a thorough check up. His tests were negative so he was vaccinated and given a topical flea treatment. He was named Rusty and moved into Maggie’s House. Our vet determined he was a senior gentleman cat, between 10 and 15 years old. He had previously been neutered so at some point he belonged to someone. He weighed only six pounds. Amazingly for his age and condition he was in good health.

Rusty 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 and he gets along very well with all the other cats and kittens in the shelter.

Rusty is now available for adoption. He will be a wonderful companion for someone who is looking for a calm and loving feline.
