Cherokee, (front), belonged to an older lady but when she passed on her family just put him out of the house so they could sell it. Luckily a neighbor new (Ralphie) and tried to get him in her house but that didn't work so he became feral for quite sometime. She was putting food out to keep him visiting and then got help to trap him. He was given to a rescue group that altered him and put him up for adoption. Our Mommy was the second person to adopt him 'cause the first adoption didn't work, they didn't like him hiding all the time. It took Mommy 1 month for it to go through and that was because the woman that ran the group was on vacation. I stopped by to hold Cherokee as often as I could and they saw how much I wanted him so they told me to just take him. Yes, Cherokee hid all the time at first and Mommy had to give him a sleepy pill to get him to our new house. But after catching a photo of him yawning she saw his problem....his teeth were really bad! Why, when he was sedated for altering, was he not checked over by the vet??? A cats mouth condition should be important in evaluation for adoption. The Vet had to pull most of his teeth and polished the very few that were left. Now he is a very different cat, he sits on anyone's lap, begs for food, and does not fear the dogs. March 1st, Cherokee AKA also lovingly known as Kee Kee, will be 15 years old!
(Tinker and Cherokee) There isn't even one of us brothers that shows disrespect for our Kee Kee. He is the last surviving kitty from the first cat family with our beans. You are forever LOVED Kee Kee!=^Y^=
