Meet Mugsy

dob 8/2021

Born in a barn on North Long Lake Rd., Mugsy was trapped in a feral colony for neuter and return, but he had a nasty respiratory infection, and while we were treating him, we discovered he was so friendly that we didn't return him to the colony. He is a sweet, chatty, highly food-motivated cat who continues to develop into a wonderful pet every day. He loves to play, loves other cats, and even tolerates the large dog in his foster home. He puts up with holding for only a few seconds, and loud noises or quick movements can startle him, common behaviors in previously feral cats. Mugsy will do best in an adult home or one with older kids and other amiable cats or a cat-friendly dog for companions.

Mugsy is FIV positive. Humans can't catch it from cats, and other cats can get it only from deep bite wounds. It is something to be aware of but not afraid of. With a good diet and regular vet care, Mugsy will live a long, happy life with the people lucky enough to open their home to him.
