Breed(s): Domestic Long Hair
Drax is an almost 4-year-old neutered male cat. Abandoned during the high heat of summer, he found shelter in a neighbor’s bushes during the day. He made his presence known by meowing and coming out to greet people early mornings and at dusk. We are the only cat owners in a cul-de-sac of folks not allergic to cats so we took over his care in hopes of finding his owner or a new home.
Drax’s chip number was linked to a “deceased” cat by the name of Max. Since one of our cats is called Max, we had to select another name. Having cute white fangs clearly visible against his black fur and being “undead,” we thought Drax (as a variation of Dracula and Max) would be a good temporary name.
Our vet did a complete medical evaluation and confirmed that he is FeLV+. Since feline leukemia is contagious to other cats, we regrettably cannot incorporate this playful and affectionate kitty into our clan. The virus only affects cats and *cannot* be transmitted to humans, dogs, or any other animal.
Drax is a sweet, loving, and active cat who greets us with pleasure when we visit him in the spacious, air-conditioned workshop where we shelter him. He’s a lap-cat, a keyboard-cat, and a top-of-the-office-chair-cat until he decides to retire to his basket until playtime. Drax is the epitome of a cartoon cat when chasing the illusive green laser – skidding from here to there. When we depart, Drax often runs after us - grabbing our ankles (without using his claw) to keep us with him.
Drax absolutely deserves a real home inside a house and with no other cats or just with other FeLV+ cats. He deserves access to cuddles and playtime throughout the day that a forever home will provide him.
