Presenting Calum!

We know that he is not going to be easy to find the right home for - but he deserves a chance!

It took months of intensive strategy to gain the trust of this fellow.
When his foster mom noticed him outside last fall, he was wearing a collar and had a complete tail.
We later found out that he had escaped his carrier while enroute to the vet for a checkup and had been lost.
Sometime later his tail was cut? Squished? Caught in something?

Anyway, infection set in and chunks of tail started falling off, frozen to the ground.
Was it gangrene? Frostbite?

His foster mom was determined to get him in and get him help.
For many weeks she blasted a space heater into her basement bathroom, and opened the window (under her deck) - to lure him to come in.
She heated up bowl after bowl of food - and finally the day came when he was far enough inside that we could shut the door.

He had a visit to the vet where the remaining tail needed to be amputated back to healthy flesh, and hes doing so much better now.

Calum is still a very shy fellow.
He will tolerate occasional petting and is curious about other cats but not getting along with the older resident male cat in his foster home
He would be fine as a single cat, or possibly in a home with one or two gentle cats

He is about 2 years young, and is looking for a quiet home with one or two adults that will give him space to blossom into the cat we know he can be.
