He is a old gentleman, he was adopted by Catsnap 11 years ago to a wonderful man and life was good. But times changed, Brave Heart lost his owner, his home and his happiness.
The winters were especially hard on him, he would find shelter where he could and food was scarce. And each day was a repeat of the day before.
I imagine he would dream of his prior life and the man that loved him but that does not shelter a freezing body nor put food in a empty stomach.
We received a call from a area vet that a cat had been brought in to them with our chip and it was not in good shape. The pictures they sent us showed a emaciated body with hair loss and terrible sores on his body.
With the help of Champaign County Animal Control we were able to have the cat returned to us and were overjoyed he was home.
Our vet told us the sores looked like burns but they are healing quick and his hair is growing back. He is extremely friendly and so grateful that a soft   blanket is all his to snuggle in and food is available at all times. Twice a day he gets canned food and I think he knows when it is time for that. He gets love and petting from the interns and volunteers and I would like to believe the bad days are mainly forgotten.
Thank you for your interest in a Catsnap cat or kitten!
