This cat was put out by his owner and denied food and water. One of our 19th Ward neighbors, Pam, responded to this cat's constant cries and brought him into her home. She is calling him mittens. She has several pets already and needs to find a home for him. She is not "on the internet" so I am posting for her. I met mittens and he is extremely loving. He purred and let me touch him immediately. He loves attention. I am not a veterinarian but I am quite sure he is a neutered male. He is thin from lack of food but otherwise looks healthy. His teeth and gums (yes he let me look without hassle) look healthy and I think he is probably young. His coat is glossy and clean and his eyes are clear. He has no evidence of being in any fights (which again leads me to believe that he is neutered). He gets along with cats and dogs. His vaccination status is unknown. If you are willing to provide a home for him please call Pam at 279-9297. If you cannot provide a home but have the resources to take him to a veterinarian for a check up please call her. Thank you so much! This cat is a joy! I'd take him in myself if I could.
