Meet Homer! Homer was on a long and difficult journey and nearing the end of his ability to carry on when his luck changed and he was spotted on the side of a busy road by a rescuer. It was a bitter cold day and poor Homer was skin and bones, severely dehydrated and his paws were covered in frostbite scabs. He fell into the arms of his rescuer with relief and purrs of gratitude. For two weeks Homer ate, drank and slept, sometimes he hissed for no reason, then the real Homer emerged, graceful, handsome and full of love. It was discovered that Homer had a microchip which was registered to a person who had adopted him just 8 months prior to his getting lost. Sadly she did not seem concerned about Homer and had only noticed recently that he had been missing. Based on his condition, he had been on his own for a long time. She decided she didn’t have time for a cat and agreed to let us find him a new home. Homer is a very good kitty and has shown no behavioral problems. He is loving and talkative. He is fine with being picked up and held. It is hard to determine his age. While he looks young and is energetic he has very few teeth. Cats can begin to lose teeth at 5 years of age and can be worsened by poor nutrition and untreated gum disease. He currently shows no signs of gum disease or any health problems. He is neutered and up to date on shots and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He has demonstrated fear aggression towards other cats, so it would be best for Homer to be your one and only.
