Others’ Fine Felines: Frankencat Today

What a handsome kitty! So graceful and dignified, and confident. This is a recent photo of Frankencat which his person Heather Long recently shared on Facebook. Who would know his beginnings from looking at this photo? Not only is he an incredible cat every moment of the day, but he’s an incredible reason for giving every cat a chance at rescue. You can read more about him in Devoted to the End: Frankencat and Old Grand Dad, and you also have a chance to vote for him for Cat of the Week at Moderncat Magazine! Let’s make a one-eyed FeLV-positive cat the cat of the week! Frankencat certainly deserves it for what he did for Old Grand Dad.

And look at the dangerous dogs he has to live with!

Frankencat’s fur siblings, the dangerous pit bulls.

Those are Heather’s three vicious pit bulls and one Rhodesian Ridgeback. Right. Maybe they’re having vicious dreams?

Below, as a reminder, is one more of Frankencat’s intake photos. His injuries and conditions were so extreme, who would think he’d be able to recover?

Yet recover he did, as you see below, relaxed and happy, and he has that stuffed Tiger totally frightened!

What a fierce kitty, the tiger is scared.

No one was sure how it would be for him when he lost his charge in caretaking, Old Grand Dad. He’s adjusted pretty well, making friends with the rest of the dogs, getting accustomed to being in the rest of the house, and just being a super nice, friendly, affectionate black cat. You can see more articles with his photo here.

And while you’re out there voting for him for Cat of the Week at Moderncat Magazine don’t forget to vote for him and Old Grand Dad in the Petties, below!

  • Such an incredible cat… what an amazing recovery. And those dogs… vicious indeed… I’m shaking in my leopard print boots!

    • Deb, one of the remarkable things about Frankencat is how much of a regular cat he is most of the time–we have to give him a little down time now and then from being a supercat. And those dogs–scary! They’re so much like a bunch of puppies! And the leopard print boots! Too funny!
