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

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

When volunteer Brenda Gustafson came across this handsome fella, his poor, ragged face was full of holes secondary to fighting with other cats in her area. Me, being the clever girl that I am, named him Toledo, but my husband insisted that no one would get the correlation between his facial wounds (think sprinkler head) and the expression "HOLY TOLEDO"; he was wrong! After naming over 2500 cats, I pride myself on being unique and finding a name that fits the cat - and this was purr-fect!
Toledo, born in early 2008, may have looked a mess, but on the inside he was fine and dandy! It took a good week for his wounds to heal up, and luckily he isn't scarred from the trauma he suffered. But, sadly, as is the case with many stray males, his fighting allowed the transmission of FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) into his blood stream, so Toledo became a Sid's kid (or Sidizen, as we like to dub them).
Upon arrival at Sids, Toledo took it a bit slow and easy, taking in his surroundings with a careful eye. But, within a week, he was out and about, socializing with the other cats and soaking up the attention of the volunteers! Now you find him in all sorts of hideouts and perches at our place, or snuggled up in a cozy bed sleeping away a lazy afternoon. He is quite a laid-back fella, but he really knows how to turn on the charm when he needs to!
Thanks to Brenda, Toledo is now living the good life and loving every minute of it!
