Boggs came to the shelter with a badly broken rear leg, and he was lucky to have survived the injury. Under normal circumstances at a public shelter, a pet in such poor condition would be euthanized, but an outside non-profit group learned of his plight and decided that because he showed such spirit, they would donate the funds necessary for his surgery. And the surgery was a success and his prognosis is excellent.
Boggs is a neutered male tabby that is 10 months old. He is still living with his foster family and hopefully will be quickly adopted so he won’t need to return to his cage at the shelter.
Here are some things you should know about him:
- He is a lap cat that responds to all over petting, especially on his head and back.
- He loves to roll around to be sure you scratch all his favorite body places.
- He doesn’t mind being held.
- When he isn’t seeking affection, he likes to explore, counter surf and sit quietly and observe his surroundings.
- He engages in play with his foster family’s dog at every opportunity.
- His litter box skills are exemplary.
- Given his orange coloring and history of leg fracture, he should be an indoor only cat.
Boggs is very active and playful and acts just as a kitten should. When over-stimulated, he tends to play bite during prolonged periods of petting, but this behavior is likely due to his age and months of confinement and is diminishing in frequency.
If you are looking for an interactive, high-energy cat, look no further than Boggs. Be the one that will start him on his new life.
