Meet Smitty, the sweet boy with big, hopeful eyes who needs you to rescue him the most! Recently blind due to medical conditions, Smitty was on the brink of euthanasia at a shelter because he was declining from depression being a long stay confined to a cage at a shelter. We couldn’t let that happen!

Sadly, we would learn from our vet that Smitty is both FeLV and FIV positive. This means he can join a home with other FeLV+ cats or be the only cat, as FeLV is contagious through sharing water bowl, food bowls, mutual grooming and can shorten a cat's life and we would not risk that for a home with healthy cats.

Smitty doesn't ask for much—just a quiet place near his food and water bowls to curl up and nap. He loves his cat cube, enjoys pets, and chats to his foster mom at meal times to remind her not to forget his meals. Although he may not live as long as other cats due to having both FeLV and FIV, Smitty will undoubtedly brighten your world for the time he has.

Please give this loving cat a gentle, safe place to land and spoil him rotten with wet food, soft beds, and lots of chin scratches. Smitty deserves a forever home where he can feel loved and secure.
