Cat of the Week: Footsie

Look at this handsome guy! Footsie (AC26434) is a handsome 3- to 5-year-old Siamese male. He has a lynx point coat and light blue eyes. This poor guy was found in a school yard with his head caught in a drain! He was rescued and now he is in the shelter waiting for his forever home. Footsie has deformed toes on all of his paws. He gets around just fine – he just looks very interesting!

Adopted so far
