  • Tabby - Orange - Kanga - Medium - Adult - Male - Cat

    Kanga, and his sister, Roo, were found as strays living on the streets of St. Louis. Their litter mates were caught at 8 weeks of age and were taken to a rescue group in the area. The kind ladies trapping their siblings did not know that Kanga and Roo were there because they were hiding, so they were inadvertently left behind. They survived another 2 1/2 weeks on their own before anyone found them. Both were terribly skinny and extremely hungry and dehydrated. Kanga was in the worst shape - he was very emaciated, anemic, and had a horrible upper respiratory infection. We honestly weren't sure if he would make it. Thanks to the combined efforts of St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach, Snuggle and a guardian angel named Ronda, they were nursed back to health and doing great now. Roo has since been adopted so Kanga is patiently waiting for his turn. He is quite the character and loves to nuzzle your face and lay on your lap for cuddle time. He can be a bit timid initially, but he warms up pretty quickly and loves his humans once he has built trust with them. In fact, he will follow you around and lay by your side, pawing your hands with his paws to politely ask for attention. Because Kanga was not treated for his upper respiratory infection right away when he was a baby, it seems to have caused some minor damage to his sinuses. He is perfectly healthy, but he does sound congested at times and sneezes on occasion - just like a person with sinus problems. We have tried various treatments including a sinus flush, but unfortunately, they haven't really seemed to help. When he has a flare up, we usually give him a small dose of Benadryl and that seems to help. Regardless, it doesn't slow him down one bit and he maintains a very good quality of life without special treatments. Kanga LOVES other cats and must not be an only kitty. He may do fine with a cat-friendly dog too and older kids would be okay. He is neutered, microchipped, tested negative for Feline Leukemia/FIV, up-to-date on vaccinations, and treated for parasites. Kanga is tag # 7782JB - DOB 6/1/12.
