My Adoption Story:

Went to the highest kill shelter in Los Angeles area (Downey) to rescue a new kitty after my beloved previous 13 year-old cat died suddenly from cancer that showed no symptoms until two days before his death. I was devastated after his death and mourned him for two months before I could get another cat. Finally I was ready. I was looking for a kitten but then I saw this cat that they approximate to be one year old. He was not neutered or chipped. He appeared to be a Maine Coon mix. They took him out for me to play with and he was so sweet, just purring away. Since he wasn’t neutered I couldn’t get him that day but I put a hold on him. When he was ready, drove back to Downey and picked him up. But I noticed in the car that he was sneezing! The next morning brought him to the vet and the $20 shelter cat cost $120 in medications although the vet itself was free. I also bought him baby saline nose drops to clear up his nose. Right away he figured out how to use his litter box, knew where his food and water was but mostly just slept (on my bed) and wasn’t grooming himself. I brushed him a lot, which he loves, he purred a lot and I was hoping for the best. I used vaporizer steam and played Pink Floyd’s “Breathe” song lol and sang into his ear as he inhaled the steam. Finally he started to talk, make cat noises, and eventually groom himself. He’s still not playing with toys. It seems he doesn’t know how! I’m trying to teach him how to play and he sometimes bats at something now. (One week from getting him from shelter.) No one knows what his past was or where he came from but he’s obviously an indoor cat and very trusting of people. His muscles seemed really weak but after one week of good nutrition, seem to be getting stronger. His antibiotics are done and he still sneezes, but more like allergy sneezes and is no longer congested. We are bonding. He gives me kitty kisses, looks me in the eyes, purrs a lot, follows me wherever I go and sleeps on my bed. Hoping for a long healthy relationship with Asher!
