Congratulations to Paws Patrol of Green Valley. At the Beading Divas 10th anniversary celebration, this worthy cat rescue won the random drawing to be our August fundraising partner.
When Bowie came to Paws Patrol in March he was found outdoors and very sick. He drooled, his teeth were in poor condition, he sneezed all the time, had terrible ear infections and weighed under five pounds. This is devastating with any cat but especially one that is between 5 to 8 years old. Those first few months with us, Bowie was a regular at the vet office. With time and patience, our volunteers medicated, socialized and nursed him back to good health. Without those bad teeth, he can eat better and gain weight. Today, he is 10 pounds! Bowie no longer drools and his mouth and few remaining teeth look wonderful, plus he’s stopped sneezing. His fur looks so much better thanks to the Paws Patrol volunteers who spent time brushing him.
Now that Bowie is healthy, he can be adopted. He is currently in a foster home receiving love and attention. His white whisker mustache has a striking resemblance to the handsome actor Sam Elliott, don’t you agree? Bowie is tough and enjoys good food and regular grooming. Bowie seeks an indoor forever home where he can be spoiled and give you love in return. He welcomes the friendship of other kitties and humans.
