13 y.o. American Curl available in Agoura CA

post #1 of 15

Hi folks...go here http://www.americancurlrescue.com/needhomes.htm to see a photo (he's not chocolate though, just poor color in the photo). Spock is a black smoke, and is papered, though I am not sure if papers come with him. He is a charming older fellow, who deserves a new home quickly. A contact email link is with his description.

Pat and Alix P. Curl

Well because, it's part of what I do with my spare time (LOL!). Our group can not foster him, but we hope to help place him via the listing on our site. He really is such a doll - he had to have some teeth extracted and the vet staff fell so in love with him, they are holding him until an adoptive or foster home is found. He is a doll from what I hear

Now...if you might be in the mood for a shy, skittish flame point domestic who is siamese in looks, I have a local rescue I'm about to do, first, I need a place to send her!

I have seen her in my yard (she likes to meditate in our stand of bamboo) since late last Spring. If she saw me watching her, she ran. Later, I was afraid she was pregnant, and she at least let me feed her, then she disappeared as did every other stray suddenly in my yard (like Itty Bitty Blue). I thought there had been a stray round up.

I saw her for the first time in about 2 months last week, and it was because she let me see her...she was just outside my front door as I was unpacking my car. I again began putting out food and immediately had an issue with a brown tabby and white tom who chases her off and eats the food.

It escalated to where I found her cowering against my back door - he had ruffled fur - I chased him off and it was the first time she let me near her at all without running.

Since then, I decided not to put the food out unless I saw her (she let me pet her head quickly a couple of days ago). I didn't see her for a day, then this morning, I heard this meowr! meowr! I thought it was my girl Larissa but it was coming from outside, I looked out and there she was (we call her Frankie, long story for another time), yelling at me! I went out and again got to pet her. I watched her eat because sure enough, Mr. Tom showed up.

Tonight, I again heard a meow, she was there head poking out from under my deck, and she didn't run when I came out with the food. She let me do a full body pet from neck to tail, and then (I can't believe I tried this) I felt underneath her - she's not nursing (a concern I had), and she even let me lift her tail (horrors!) - I see nothing, so I really do think she is a she. She's very, very thin So, given how long we've seen her around, if she has an owner, she's neglected and not fed well if at all.

I found fur this afternoon out front, her fur..from one tree to a bush under our picture window...must be Mr. Tom went after her. I really want to catch her in a carrier, get her to my vets for testing and shots and then get her placed.
But...I need to have a place to put her before I catch here, I can't keep her here.
So...not sure how old, will get a pix of her and get it posted. She's lovely (and she's going to be a talker)...she was looking hunched in her back legs, not sure why..that would have to be checked out...I think she just didn't want to leave tonight She gave a last meow before she went off.

Okay, well as soon as I was up this am she was at the back door...she did leg rubs, moofs and generally let me know I was now "ok". I talked with dh, and she's no longer an outside stray. She's in a huge dogsize carrier, and has an apt. with our vet early Friday. Please keep your fingers crossed, she is so very very thin. No nasal or eye boogies, but who knows.

We took photos and a video of her, will get them cleaned up and sent off to you late tonight. I'm going to take the rest of this discussion to pm for now, but let me say this...she made biscuits on my arm when I picked her up for photos, she is a LOVE, and not as mouthy as I thought. She's perched on the artificial sheepskin bed I gave her and only talks when she sees me. I think she'll be a very interactive, responsive, and loving companion.

ps...she has the cutest freckles on her nose...tee hee!

I will, her exam is tomorrow. I am worried about her hind leg weakness, but she is so incredibly thin. We'll see...we hope it's just due to her being starved. She is a biscuit maker, a roll over and show her tummy, a talker when she is talked to or approached, but not a constant talker...she is just adorable, and I pray she will get a clean bill of health.
