Found underweight with open wounds and FIV+, he had lived all his life on the streets
He was not in great shape when they found him, life on the streets had taken its toll on this senior tabby, and he wasn’t getting any younger.
To Say he was In poor shape was an understatement, if left, where he was the future did not look great for Runt. Covered in open wounds, they had found him just in time.
He was taken to Lake County Animal Shelter, Tavares, Florida where they found him to be severely underweight along with having an upper respiratory infection.
It took seven weeks for this formerly malnourished senior feline to bounce back, but bounceback he did. Emily Blythe, a member of staff at Lake County, took Runt home with her.
Like this senior Tabby, he came right out of his shell. Finally, Runt was pain-free, in no discomfort, his hangdog look disappeared and his true personality shone through, in fact, he blossomed.
He blended puurfectly with Emily’s other cats, mostly senior, no longer fighting for food or territory, now he had friends to hang out with and a roof over his head.
Not long after Runt moved in Emily brought home a foster kitten.
