Cat for Adoption
Black and white Male
Socks was born in the city streets of Ottawa about seven years ago. He was first seen as a small kitten, trying to find food and fend for himself in the city streets. As the years went by, Socks grew older and wiser, but life outside took its toll on poor old Socks. The fact that he survived 7 years is a testament to his ability to survive, despite all odds. Seven years of living outside is the equivalent of 14 / 15 years of comfortable indoor living. Over the years, Socks has had two broken legs (which healed crookedly on their own), upper respiratory infections, known starvation, cold and human abuse. Sadly, despite being known in the neighbourhood, not one person tried to help Socks and bring him to a vet. He is now practically blind, has arthritis and rheumatism from his previously broken limbs and almost deaf. He continues to hobble around the neighbourhood at the speed of an aged senior citizen. He will not survive another winter outside.
He loves kittens and is great with them. He is often left in charge of the kittens, while the mother cats go off and try and find food for their families…..
