Ranger’s story as told by his foster mom:
Ranger was rescued by our family while we were on vacation. We found him lying in the crevice of two rocks on broken glass with a large cut on his leg, covered in burrs, infested with fleas, unable to “meow”, and lethargic, nearing death. It took about 12 hours to remove the burrs; his tail had to be shaved due to the fact that it was covered completely with burrs. His first food was a slice of a watermelon, including the rind. He chased that down with some salmon we had on hand and his next few days consisted of eating and sleeping to gain strength. Ranger was found at “Elephant rock” at the “Ranger station” where locals of Tuolumne county swim. His name was Ellie–after Elephant Rock–until we learned he was male, and, as one may say…he was large and in charge, so Ranger it was.
Ranger is a sweet kitty, he prefers the indoors but goes outside when encouraged, He likes to be pet, and, when he is finished, he will tell you. He is not a bully, lives well with other cats and dogs, but will not tolerate them harassing him.
Fat Kitty City provided full vetting and services to get Ranger back to health. He is now available for adoption! If you are interested in Ranger, call 916-939-3418 or email Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org
