Most of the community cats we trap are far more feral than friendly, but Sesame doesn’t seem to follow that rule. While he was still living outside, a kind woman was taking care of him, and, once he started to trust her, he was very affectionate. He enjoyed being petted and even allowed the woman to pick him up without fussing about it. Eventually, Sesame’s caretaker decided that he was sociable enough to become an indoor cat and enjoy the comforts and safety of a home.
Sesame can be on the shy side. We understand that being trapped and taken into an entirely new environment must be greatly unsettling for any feline. Thankfully, Sesame has made good progress with us as he begins to feel more comfortable in our sanctuary. While he’s still a little reserved, he obviously likes the attention he gets from our staff and volunteers and has not shown any signs of aggression.
Sesame is one of our Feline Leukemia (FeLV) positive cats. FeLV is a virus that deeply affects the immune system of a cat and can make them vulnerable to different health complications. Cats with FeLV often have shortened lifespans, but exactly how the virus impacts a cat varies greatly. Due to his status, Sesame can only be a solo cat or live with other FeLV cats, as the virus is spread through cat to cat contact. Feline Leukemia may seem like a scary disease, but with the right care, Sesame and his fellow Felvies can live happy, healthy lives. If there is room in your heart and home for a Special Needs cat, come in to meet our Sesame.
