ACR's Newest Kitty- Officer

Officer is an adorable white kitty with grey marks who came to ACR last week.  A gentleman showed up at our door with a cat in a trap, proceeded to tell us that he would not Trap-Neuter-Return this cat because he was already feeding three cats that he had paid to TNR (through ACR, which means that the donation we ask for does not even come close to covering all of our costs to TNR a cat) and that he was leaving.  He set down the trap, walked out and drove away as fast as possible. 

There were a million things racing through our minds- is this cat feral? After all, he did come in a trap! Does he have FIV/Feline Leukemia? Is he healthy?

We brought him to the vet clinic where we discovered that he was already neutered, and tested negative for FIV/Feline Leukemia.  We also discovered that while he is a little shy at first, Officer was sweet as pie.

He has a few mild wounds that appear to have come from him being outside, but we have a feeling that in no time he will be better than ever and ready to find his forever home.
