The Pet Paw-see got a call about a couple of cats trying to survive under a trailer during this below zero February weather. With some feline detective work, we determined that Patches and his fur sibling George were abandoned after their human mom died. Thankfully, Patches was cold and hungry enough that he was willing to walk into a carrier when the Pet Paw-see arrived to help. George is still out in the cold and we will try to help him too! Patches is about 7 years old.
Patches has tested positive for both FIV and FeLV. This wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t be forced to live outside. Thankfully, Animeals, a rescue organization in Missoula, has accepted him into their program. They have had excellent success placing special needs cats like Patches into loving homes.
