DOB: 11/1/12Fantastic Mr. Fox is absolutely bursting with love and affection! He has had a rough life, but is still friendly, mushy, and sweet. He starts each day with a little dance and a floppy-snuggle session.  He was abandoned at a feral colony, injured, and starving. He had been abused and was trying his best to survive. The neighbors tried to look out for him until eventually his foster mom found him and, through Kitten Rescue, got him much needed care. Poor Mr. Fox was matted, filthy, infected with mange and ringworm, and suffering from a mouthful of broken and rotting teeth. He needed a full mouth dental extraction, except for 1 tooth. It left him with stomatitis, which requires medication to keep inflammation to a minimum. Mr. Fox is also FIV+, but that doesn’t get him down and neither can his past because he’s a sweet cuddle-bug and he knows FIV+ cats live full and happy lives too!These days, Fantastic Mr. Fox helps his foster mom by babysitting two tiny foster kittens—making sure they play nice and don’t make a mess. He loves other cats and being part of a family. Even when you’re busy, he’ll sit and gaze at you lovingly. Mr. Fox is a chatty fellow—he meows, chirps, trills, grunts, or squeaks until you provide him with scratches. At night he sings the song of his people, about the trials he overcame, and the ladies he once loved—but to us it just sounds like MRWOWOWwww.His joys in life, other than warm food and snuggles, are sun puddles, blankets fresh out of the dryer, kicker/mice toys, new scratchers, a warm window seat, and lots of catnip. Despite being a senior, he is still very active, mobile, alert, and engaged—with happy, mellow energy! He does get stressed around high energy or emotions, so he probably wouldn’t be good with young children or dogs.
