Project Description


NICK is a very handsome 5 year old GRAY TABBY DOMESTIC MEDIUM HAIR. He is neutered and has his claws. In early February, Nick was sitting in a cage at a local shelter with a mouth so red and raw and an almost black protruding tongue that it was profoundly painful just for us to look at the poor guy. He could barely eat and was severely underweight, yet he retained a friendly, happy disposition to visitors, much to our great surprise. We could not leave him there and he was immediately whisked to the waiting arms and skills of a foster in Gurnee and her wonderful vet clinic. She got him cleaned up and addressed his poor mouth, which was not due to any kind of dental problem but rather an autoimmune issue which was controlled right away by a medication that costs around $30 a month. Now his mouth and tongue are quite normal, he eats hard and soft food with no problem and he’s gained over two pounds! Now all he needs is his FurEver home! This mellow, loving guy is fine with other cats and dogs that leave him alone.  He immediately impresses people with his sweet nature and is a favorite at the vet, who is happy to answer any questions about his autoimmune disease.  Imagine being anything other than cranky dealing with that much pain, yet Nick IS that much of a loving kitty! We may be a purebred rescue but our hearts are with ALL cats, and we know there is a special someone out there who will love this guy as much as we have! SPECIAL NEEDS ADOPTION FEE $25.  FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
