Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: Curly Q.


Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about Curly Q.:

The Elbow Room bar and lounge near Michigan and Fuller is no place for a young man to be hanging out; well, OK, not appropriate for an impressionable young cat, how's that? But that is where Michaela Archibald found him on Saturday, April 21st, 2012, wandering around, looking for food and friendship. So she scooped him up and took him home for the weekend, discovering that he had a significantly screwed-up tail. She thought of course that he had been injured, so when she called we made quick work of getting him in to me at the clinic. However, his corkscrew of a tail actually resulted either from a tail fracture at birth (common to see this take place) or from another type of trauma sustained long before his rescue. Thankfully nothing needed to be done to correct this as it causes him no pain whatsoever AND adds a unique twist to his appearance!
Sleek and shiny with a glossy jet black coat that did suffer from a bite wound to the right shoulder, he came to me at 18 months of age (born around Halloween, 2010) with a variety of scratches and sores in various stages of healing. Not one to complain though, this stud (yes, he was intact when we got him) was thrilled to have 3 meals a day, a nice bath and a cozy place to call his own. He was a bit less enthused about having to share his new digs with the other new arrivals, but he did find them very entertaining to watch from a safe distance initially. I think this strapping fella was so used to defending himself and losing, by the looks of it, that his guard was naturally raised until he could survey the situation and get comfortable.
He adores us volunteers and loves to lounge around soaking in the goodness that is his life now. His new life is quite different from hanging around the train tracks and investigating the kitty bar scene, that is for sure! Pretty and playful, Curly Q. will be certain to shuffle on into a home of his own and plant himself firmly, ready to blossom and shine with his new family:)
Thanks for taking time to find out more about our Crash Cats!!
