Lopsy was one of our Elf Fund recipients. He is now available for adoption! His story and update are told below.
Lopsy’s story from his rescuer: My son and I were taking a walk by Bertelson Park in El Dorado Hills. We saw a grey kitty laying in the dirt; I wasn’t sure he was alive. My son went closer and the kitty made quiet noises as if in distress. The kitty came to us and was so sweet. When I looked closer, I noticed he was a male that had not been neutered. He had a big wound in the side of his neck and needed our help badly. I knocked on nearby doors and the neighbors said he was a stray or neglected, and abandoned. I could not leave him laying in the dirt so badly injured and needing our rescue. We took him home and I called Fat Kitty City who are helping to nurse him back to health, and trying to find this sweet boy the home he deserves.
An update from Lopsy’s rescuer and foster mom: I’ve had Lopsy for over 3 months now. He’s very big, almost 20 pounds! He’s very sweet and loves affection from people. He did live outside when I found him so he’s very sensitive to noises and likes to be handled in a gentle way. He doesn’t start any fights with my other cats but they’re young and don’t like him, so they will try to fight with him. Lopsy is a gentle giant. He snores and likes to cuddle and sleep by me, or on my pillow by my head. He likes to drink from the bathroom faucet and lets me know when he wants to do that.
