This handsome longhaired fellow has a sad story to tell:
He was one of many longhaired kittens born in the yard of a woman who lives by Great South Bay.. She adamantly says the cats & kittens are hers, and refuses to spay/ neuter or vet any, even with help from the town shelter.
Another neighbor has secretly TNRed quite a few of these cats & taken over their care.
But by the time she gets them, they are far beyond the age of being tamed.
CHATTERBOX, who is no more than 4 yrs old, must have been one of the kittens taken inside by a boarder at the home of the woman who has allowed this rampant breeding to persist.
He was a friendly inside/outside cat, and blended in with the rest of the colony except for being very FRIENDLY. He talks to you; rubs up & gives kisses. It is never a problem to pick him up.
When the boarder died, CHATTERBOX was suddenly outside 24/7. We assume the landlady put him out.
The kind lady tried to get him neutered but she was refused by a TNR program because she brought him to the appointment in a carrier rather than a trap. She didn’t know.
When Last Hope heard how friendly he was, we made arrangements for him to be neutered even though he’d be in a carrier, and then he would enter our Adoption Program.
Only hitch is that CHATTERBOX has tested FIV + (feline immune deficiency) twice which is why he wasn’t scooped up in a flash.
FIV+ cats can live long healthy lives, so hopefully someone kind will be taken by his charms and chattering, and will scoop him up in a flash now that she has been on Last Hope Inc FB.
FIV is not spread by casual contact to healthy cats. The usual method of transmission is through deep bites.
