A Special Needs Stray Needs a Special Home

Parker, a sweet stray kitty who needs a home!

From the time he was a kitten, Parker has had some neurological problems, really just amounting to a tremor in his head.

Problem is, Parker lives in a managed stray and feral colony, and according to the manager the area is not entirely safe since neighbors have been trapping cats and taking them to be euthanized. While they protect the colony from this, Parker is at special risk.

He was recently neutered and given basic veterinary care where the veterinarian said he may outgrow it, and in fact it seems to be getting better as he gets older. Being a stray they did not pursue the exact cause, but the colony manager doesn’t want to see him outside over winter because of his condition.

Parker is about a year old, is a sweet, friendly little guy who’s had all his vaccinations and will be FeLV tested if someone agrees to adopt him.

If you know of anyone who would be willing to give this little guy a home, please call Denise Charmillo on 412-421-7534.

    Oh gosh that is so sad. I wish I could take him, but I have way too many already and don’t have the money to support him. I sure hope someone steps up and takes him home. What a sad story. I will put this on Twitter. Thanks.

      Thanks, Marg! You’re already doing your part, but if we find someone I’ll be so happy for Parker.
