Project Description


SINBAD is a SUPER SWEET BLACK DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is 7 years old, neutered, has his claws and weighs around 10 pounds. Yes, this poor guy looks funny. You would too if you had been kicked outside to live on your own after having been adopted from a local shelter where the new owners promised to take good care of you! When he was found, Sinbad had such a bad flea infestation and fleabite allergy that all his fur from his shoulders down was gone. He was rail thin and starving and on top of it all half of his tail was “degloved”, meaning that the skin had been torn off of it leaving the bones. This most likely had happened in a car motor situation. The person who found Sinbad took him to the shelter to be put down but the staff there saw such a very loving cat they simply could not do it. Instead they gave him food, got rid of his fleas and amputated the dead part of his tail. Several months later and Sinbad found himself far better but in a shelter dealing with an influx of too many cats and he didn’t have a prayer of getting adopted. He’s a black cat (lots of people won’t adopt black animals because they are not colorful), he’s older (anything over 5 years is very hard to adopt out) and he looks, well, he looks like a cat who has been through a LOT. Fortunately for him the director of SPCR happened to be doing a shelter walk-through and when she saw Sinbad and how incredibly loving he was to shelter staff, she knew she could find him a home. Sinbad ADORES attention. He literally gives hugs and kisses and follows people around like a little dog. He is ok with other animals when introduced slowly. We think he was fighting for survival for quite some time and is afraid of strange cats at first, so a mellow one that would ignore him would be fine. He has been thoroughly vet checked and is really in great shape, he just needs his fur to grow out! He is busy, not talkative, and will do just about anything for a treat.  The best home for him would be one that wants to give a needy cat a lot of attention and your reward will be an amazing companion that will be well worth the time! ADOPTION FEE $50. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.
