A Very Happy Tail

This amazing boy survived a fire that destroyed the home he shared with several other cats. Tuffy not only survived the amputation of his right front leg but being caged for about a month at the shelter during his convalescence. Tuffy came back sweet and active and purring – what a guy!
It is totally understandable that people might be hesitant to adopt a cat with special needs but Tuffy has found the right home with the right family.

Tuffy’s new mom writes:

“Just wanted to send an update on Tuffy. He is our third “LAWS” cat since 2004. We have renamed him “Castiel” (our little angel). He settled in right away and by day 2, he was very comfortable. He is a VERY affectionate little guy, loves to give kisses and head butts with both of us. Unfortunately this little guy wanted to be friends with our current cat “CLEOpatra” but she didn’t want anything to do with him, keeping him at a distance. He was so cute trying to get close to her and giving a sad little “chirp” when she rebuffed him. 5 days later, she now allows him to sit on “HER” chair, but still has not come completely around yet.

He’s happy, healthy and getting stronger each day! We LOVE the little guy and look forward to years of friendship in his new Furever Home.”

Additional Note: Tuffy won the hearts of everyone at the shelter during his stay with us and we are so very happy that he has found his furever home. We are confident he will eventually charm Cleopatra like he charmed us – it just may take a while!
