We are fostering a Tuxie Mancat!

Three things in human life are important.
The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind.
And the third is to be kind.
-Henry James-

We are fostering a tuxie. He is 16 years old.
A nice lady in New York saw his picture on PetFinder
and fell in love with him. He has a URI, and does not feel good.
He puts his foot and leg in the water to drink.
There are some raw spots on his legs and chest.
Our vet said it is a rash. She shaved some of his furs off of it.
It is under his fur and red.
He is diabetic, but vet said special food should take care of that.
He has some medicine and when he is well enough to travel,
a transport will be set up to take him to his forever home
from here in Georgia to New York!
He is a very, very large kittycat, but very thin and weak.
He is in the extra room that the babycats were in a few weeks ago.
Please send him some Purrrs to get well.
