Percy

I have been feeding Percy all winter. Sometimes he hung around with my cats in the alley, always staying at a safe distance, no interaction. At least twice a day he would arrive on the back porch for his food but would never let me touch him. He got bitten on the shoulder and started limping. Of course I wondered about infection but there didn't seem to be any way he would let me help him. Then one bitterly cold day I found him crouched on the windowsill and took my chance, expecting to be mauled. Apart from a hiss or two, he came quietly.

He is a sweet, patient boy and has obviously been a pet. As the vet was examining him for the first time, he was scratching him behind the ears (my favourite vet) and Percy just leaned into his hand, loving every second.

Unfortunately, he must stay in the bathroom until I can find a home. A couple of the more docile cats have spent time with him; he greets them with this little murmur and leans forward for a nose rub (not always granted). However, letting him into the apartment is just asking for trouble. He got out yesterday and the ensuing melee had me mentally counting back to when I had my last tetanus shot. They would have done him serious damage had I not been there and taken a couple of bites for the cause.

He is a big, healthy boy, vacc'd and snipped. His wound closed beautifully, although we put him on Clamavox as a precaution. He is being wormed, with two monthly doses still outstanding.

So if anyone has a soft spot for greys and would like to spring Percy from his prison, just say the word .

Look at that face!
He looks like a tough cookie - but I bet he's just a real softy

You're doing a great thing, badger - hopefully he finds his forever home very soon!

Oh Badger,another bathroom-kitty,but I am sure he does not consider it jail,he knows he's in good hands
He looks a little roughed up,but otherwise a beautiful kitty.
As always,I don't know what to say about you,you are just a wonderful person,have a magic touch with kitties
Hopefully you did not get hurt to badly,speaking from experience as you know
Him beeing neutered will probably help in finding him a home,maybe he's just lost

What a sweetie. Makes your heart ache to see him. He is very handsome. I join Chico in being amazed at what you do. You are these kitties hero. They wouldn't be around if not for you. You deserve a badge, a BIG badge.
As for the owies.....wanna compare?

He's no beauty but he is so sweet and calm, tucks in his paws and watches the world go by. If this guy was dumped, I just don't get it, he is such a prince.

If you look past the scowl on his face, I think he's gorgeous.

Hopefully someone else close by will feel the same.

He looks like a Russian blue: blue-grey coat and green eyes. He's a handsome devil. I wish I could take him. <sigh> Good luck with finding this beauty a good home.

I wondered if he was a Russian. Would that make him - um - more desirable ?

Badger,when I read you had to have a grey kitty euthanized I thought it was Percy:sad:
Anyway,I would say to any potential adoptee that he's a Russian Blue,the only problem is,they have more of a heartshaped face and usually slender,like a Siamese,at least in my cat-book.
But Percy sure is beautiful,Russian Blue or not
