Sir Prise

Sir Prize was found as a small kitten on the side of the road. He was covered in fleas and ticks, but, worse, he was severely anemic and very lethargic. Luckily, a lot of good nursing (including a blood transfusion) did the trick. This little fellow recovered nicely and is now running around our Community Room, wreaking havoc on a squeaky fur mouse.

Sir Prize is mostly brown tabby, with a white chin and some silver accents on his back. He’s about 11 weeks old at this writing (11/23/10). He’s exceptionally playful and very sweet-natured. He walks with a sway to his back end, but it doesn’t affect his ability to run after a toy. Sir Prize cannot jump very well, though he tries to do so regularly. There is some speculation here that he is going to be a rather big boy when he grows up, but that’s just a guess. Note that he MUST be an indoor-only cat; he wouldn’t be able to defend himself if he was outdoors.

We’ll probably never know what happened to Sir Prize to cause his initial lethargy and anemia. It could have been some type of prior trauma, but X-rays showed no broken bones, fused disks, or anything similar. He may have minor nerve damage or a slight neurological issue, but it should not affect his lifespan (which we expect to be normal) or his overall health.

Sir Prize is available for adoption, of course; as cute and energetic as he is, we know that’ll happen quickly. Come in to see him soon!
