Mickey – mild special needs

36291776_2123041061042915_4784334027165270016_nWelcome Mickey to BPR! This sweet boy has come to us in hopes of finding a new forever home..

We think Mickey is a CH kitty or our Vet thinks it could also be that he has some spinal / nerve damage also in his back end …. He is a bit “wobbly” on his back end but he gets around pretty well!   He can even do stairs and get up HIGH on a cat post !!   He will flop down on his side like a dog for a belly rub!!   

He is super sweet and loving but does need a home with no other animals or kids … .

He does have one minor “flaw” ..  (teehee)  .. he will pee in the litter box every time but due to we think the nerve and spinal damage in his back end he can’t poo in a litter box due to the fact that he can’t stand still to do it.. so he sort of walks and Poos’ ..  not a selling point we know but our hopes is that maybe someone has a nice big cat enclosure or totally secure fenced back yard that he can’t get out of where he can have access to the outside .. he will then poo outside 90% of the time ..    but he needs to be safe and secure outside as he can’t have free access to the ‘open roads’ as it isn’t safe especially with his back end issues …

He’s 4 years old

You can read more about CH cats here..but again, it may not be CH but more a spinal / nerve issue.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
