Scrubbles was born 5/27/10. He is a male short-haired brown tabby cat. He was found very ill in an alley in Henderson Center where he had been put into a paper bag and left out to die. He was taken to Tailwagger's Thrift Shop and then brought to us at SHS by the shop manager. When he first came to us his eyes were "glued" shut with infection. Now that the initial infection has cleared up, we can see that one of his eyes is clouded over and it appears that he does have limited vision in that eye. Extensive tests have indicated that the cornea is not ulcerated, but due to a build up of scar tissue his eye 'waters' and he will require daily eye drops for the rest of his life. A sickly kitten to begin with, Scrubbles has battled adversity and rebounded with enthusiasm! He has a chronic sinus issue and is on daily medication to keep his nasal passages clear.
Despite his rough start and the plethora of problems Scrubbles has had to deal with, he is a feisty and fun loving kitty! He plays too rough for most cats, but would do well with a doggie friend (if they don't mind their tail being used as a chew toy). Scrubbles is trained to walk on a harness and loves to get out and about. He has a huge personality and has become quite the front office "star" here at the shelter. We're looking for an adopter who doesn't mind a few "love bites" and has a really good relationship with their veterinarian.
