Linus came into a shelter when he was a tiny kitten with his eyes infected and matted shut. His owner could not afford to take him to a vet and the shelter was already full, but he was so tiny and cute that our rescue group took on the responsibility of his medical care. He had a horrible Upper Respiratory Infection (kitty cold), but was so young and little that the vets did not give him a very good chance of surviving. He was tough though! And he had a huge appetite - would eat and eat wet kitten food, even though he was barely old enough to have his baby teeth.

The URI had severely affected his eyes and he required a long course of antibiotics and eye ointment. He recovered from the URI, and continued to grow and grow! He's a big boy - kinda chunky! He's only approx 8 months old and already over 10 lbs. He's turned into quite a beautiful cat with medium length orange & white hair that is very soft, like rabbit fur, and look at that beautiful tail! He's full of personality and is very loving. He's still young so he likes to play with the other cats in foster care, but will sit in your lap and purrrr.

He does have some lasting damage to his left eye in that it looks a little smaller than the right eye, and tends to tear up more. The cornea is clear so the vet thinks his vision out if it is just fine. The vet had considered taking the eye out when he was younger since it had been so badly infected, and it's been a battle, but the eye was saved . He's such a great cat it was all worth it! Contact his foster mom at if you'd like more information about his medical history.
