Opt to Adopt - Willis

We want to introduce you to Willis Grove. He is a special needs kitty ALMOST available for adoption with our rescue Colony Cats. This little guy showed up pretty sick - and after some vet checks they discovered he has some vascular issues - the biggest problem being his esphogus was being restricted and it was affecting his ability to eat. It could be fixed with surgery, so they put his info up on their facebook page.

Well then a strange thing happened. Mom follows Oskar the Blind Cat on facebook. One afternoon, in her news feed, there was a picture of Willis with a link to the rescue asking for donations for his surgery. HOLY SMOKES!!!  Thanks to Oskar and Klaus and their followers, the donations to get Willis his surgery was made within 48 hours of if being posted.

We are lucky that we live in a city with a vet school attached to a large university, so off he went. Our friend Miss Beckie is his foster mom (and she is a nurse too so that helped) and she got him home all wrapped up and ready to recover. It took a little while, but he is getting close to being ready to go home. Mom got to meet him on Saturday as he raced around the resale shop attached to the rescue.



He still has a few vascular issues - the main one being that the blood flow to his back legs is a little restricted and it keeps him from jumping. It certainly doesn't keep him from running around. And his new family will have to keep track of his eating to make sure he doesn't eat too fast.

We know his special family is out there....and thanks for the rescue supporters and social media, Willis is going to grow into a very handsome mancat and make some family very happy!!

  12. What a cute fellow Willis is. He looks like he'll be a wonderful addition to some family. And what a great gift to him from animal-lovers: donations to allow him to live more normally. He must feel great now.
