About

My name is Tuna and oh the stories I could tell you...

Even though I am well socialized, I lived on the streets in a cat colony for a while and have the ear tip to prove it. But then my colony's caretaker could not be located and my colony was dispersed. On my own, I was kicked and abused by people in my neighborhood. Luckily, a nice neighbor brought me to The Anti-Cruelty Society. When they were checking me out, the veterinarians discovered that I had been shot with a high-powered pellet gun that fractured my front leg. I am a good healer and my leg was starting to heal on its own, so off to foster care I went for rest and recuperation.

Fortunately, things are now looking up and I won't have to have my leg amputated but I did just have my two upper canines surgically removed due to fracture and pain from a previous traumatic incident.

So here I am, waiting for my next adventure. I am outgoing and affectionate with people, and I think my foster cat brothers are cool. Dogs who know that cats "rule" are okay in my book. I am not too proud to say I am looking for love, affection and a forever-home which will include a new, low-drama life-style in the great IN-doors. If you'd like to learn more about me and set up a time to meet, please send an email to: foster@anticruelty.org
