Let me tell you a little bit about Smokey. Smokey showed up at a home in the City of York in December 2011. The wonderful folks who live there are animal lovers and they tell us it is very common to see animals pass through their yard. One day in December they spotted Smokey stocking a Mole but think think that much about it. Then in January they noticed their inside cat watching Smokey as he busily made himself a little nest in some weeds so as to catch a mid-afternoon sunpuddle.
Then one night the gentleman of the house called his wife from his cell phone to have her take a look outside in the driveway. Smokey was interested in getting some attention and perhaps some much needed help. Well after that initial contact handsome Smokey began to hang around more and more and the humans decided it was time to put out some food in case he wasn’t getting fed elewhere.
Since he was spending so much time at their house they decided to take him to the vet to determine his gender, age, and see if he was micro-chipped (which he wasn’t) and to get his shots etc. This is when they found out Smokey is FIV+.
The moment you touch Smokey he starts “making biscuits” or kneading. The vet says his overall health appears to be good. She gave him a shot of Depo Medrol for dermatitis, which she thinks was caused by fleas and they have treated him with Advantage for fleas. He has also been treated for worms. He was so sweet when they took him to the vet. He laid on the table and let them scratch his belly and purred loudly. He allowed them to clip his nails with no problem and only cried a little on the car ride there, which is totally understandable.
Since returning from the vet they put a collar on him with the rabies tag and none of their neighbors have called to tell them that he belonged to them or ask why they took their cat to the vet…..so still no owner is stepping out and claiming this beautiful creature. He belonged to somebody at some point because he is neutered, loves humans, and is totally handsome and looks very similar to a Zeus Seal Lynx Point Siamese.
He is incredibly friendly…loves to be petted…wants to come inside so badly he can’t stand it and due to his FIV+ status they are heartbroken that he can’t come in.
Won’t you please help us spread the word about this handsome boy and help him find the home and life he deserves?
