Spots was noticed by a neighbor after he hadn’t moved from his spot on the street for 17 hours. As soon as we arrived, he walked over and let us put him in the carrier – he was just waiting for help!
After multiple vet visits and tests, he was diagnosed with cryptococcosis [a fungal infection]. We were able to use the grant money to do his latest blood test, and he was negative! We have to do another test in two months, and then he will be all clear!
From the start, he was a very loving cat who just wanted to be pet and give kisses and nibbles. He was always happy but lonely at his foster’s home and now he has a new kitty friend that he is crazy about. Even better, his foster is now talking about potentially adopting him!
