This week’s pet is, Boop the Cat! Boop is a neutered male, about 1½ years old & has been at CDHS for a while. When he first arrived he had a large, bloody wound completely encircling his neck. It appeared that he must have had a collar on and then got hung up on a fence or something. He must have tried to free himself for a long time and the collar likely rubbed and dug into his neck. He was rescued by one of our wonderful volunteers. Boop was eating food his rescuer provided on his back deck and that’s when he noticed that the cat looked injured.
Staff at the CDHS tried for a while to heal his wound with salve, neck wraps, and other medical care but eventually he had to have surgery to stitch the wound together. It took him quite a while to heal up and during that time he had to wear a dickie (usually made from a sock) around his neck to keep him from scratching at it. He is now all healed up and ready to find his home.
He is a bit of an eccentric boy with lots of energy and some quirky behaviors & would do best in a home that is willing to let him do his thing. He may want to snuggle and be petted but he does get a little wound up at times. Of course, we have only known him as a resident of the shelter. If he finds his soft spot in a home that is willing to love him and provide him with toys, scratching post, and sunny windows, he would likely evolve into a loving house cat. Boop should not ever be outdoors again and his past is pretty harrowing and we wouldn’t want him to ever have to go through a similar trauma again.
If you, or someone you know, is looking for a sweet, loving, deserving fur baby...please share Boop's information with them. We know he is SO thankful for your help:)
