Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: The Biscuit


Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about The Biscuit:

Shortly after adopting from us, Anna Raveschot brought to my attention the plight of a handsome classic tabby who had been calling Washington Square in Holland his home for about seven months. He liked hanging around outside of the restaurants, especially "The Biscuit", but of course he couldn't move on in, much to his dismay. The owner, Tracy Gerow, grew quite fond of him, and she and the employees made work of finding him a home. A patron ended up taking the gorgeous guy at one point, but not too long after, she informed them she wasn't going to keep him and dumped him back off outside the place! Can you believe that??? She had already spent money to have him neutered and such, but didn't bother to take him to a local rescue or Humane Society: instead, she decided it was best he go live back outside and fend for himself! I do NOT get people!
So when Anna and the rest learned of this shocking turn of events, she contacted me, and on November 30th, 2010, brought him on in! Well, his name was inevitable in my eyes and he quite agreed it was an appropriate moniker if ever there was one:) The Biscuit, born in December of 2007 we guess, spent the first few indoor days at the clinic soaking up the comfort, filling his belly, and getting to know the other 3 newbies that he shared accommodations with. He was in 7th heaven!! And once he arrived at Crash's, he was even more thrilled, as there were windows to look OUT of rather than IN to with longing, snowflakes to watch fall on the OUTSIDE, not having to take cover from them, and food aplenty being served to him, rather than having to beg for scraps on a daily basis!
We often say it takes a village, and in this case it sure did! Thanks to the collective efforts of a group of people who set out to right a major wrong, this classy, fabulous tabby won't be waiting on tables, but rather have us waiting on him until we find him the purr-fect home of his own!
This cat has chronic rhinitis.
