Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Meet our feline Nemo!

HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!

There seems to be some weird thing that is happening from this human COVID thingy. Our partners at Community Concern For Cats (CC4C) are finding that more and more potential adopters are open to considering adult, even senior adult, cats for adoption!! True that—kitten season is almost upon us—but the adoption rate for adults is still on the upswing at CC4C!

So, I asked Mom L if she could find out if any of our Delta View Cats that live in the River View Park colony that we manage and feed might be friendly enough to bring inside for assessment for adoptability.

ENTER NEMO!!

And you may now ask “why name him Nemo—after the little Disney fish with one fin too small”? Well just check out our Nemo’s tail!!

Hey man! Is this where they keep the food??!!

Nemo was gone when Mom L first learned about this colony in 2017. He did not reappear until early 2019. Early this year, 2021, he appeared to have wound on his side so one of his feeders picked him up and plopped him into a carrier—yes he is that friendly with his feeders!! Mom L got him to our partner county animal services only to learn that the wound was already healed!! 

We got him into a foster home with a volunteer with our Delta View Cats non-profit. We are focused here in our city of Pittsburg, California. Nemo needed to get a medical check-up before he can go to adoptions through CC4C. So he ended up getting his FeLV (feline leukemia) test at the CC4C Kitchen Clinic I have posted about lots of times! Mom L so enjoys being able to volunteer with this clinic. This requires keeping him still while Dr. Josie puts a needle into a leg vein to draw just a teensy amount of blood for the “SNAP” test. 

Such a champ! No fussing!

We learned are the clinic that sweet, gentle Nemo is about eight years old and that he has a great need for a dental. His mouth is very bad and causes him such great pain. We are so relieved that he is negative for feline leukemia and that his health is otherwise very good for his age, as he has likely lived most of his life outside, lost and abandoned.

We will start fund raising for Nemo’s dental ASAP so that he can then go into the adoption path. Nemo so loves being pet and gives the strongest head bumps ever!!

Please do give Nemo your round of APAWS! for having come in from the streets!!

APAW APAWS NEMO!!!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH

PeeEss—if you  have any green papers just hanging out not doin’ much of nothin’—Nemo sure can use them! He is gonna likely loose most of his toofies. I am hoping some of my readers are able to send Nemo some help with donations to:
