Stoney was a stray in the Elk River area for at least a year. The rescuer suspects he was once someone’s pet and they left him to fend for himself. One day the rescuer noticed he had dried blood all over him, he was hurting and hungry and tired. The rescuer open the door and Stoney walked right into her house; he knew he needed help. The rescuer reached out to Ruff Start Rescue for help and a foster stepped for him and he came to live with her. Stoney was diagnosed with a large nodule in his ear that was removed and a severe painful ear infection. Stoney has been given medications and treatment and has recovered and now he is learning he won’t ever have to fend for himself and live on the streets again as that is such a hard life and he’s tired.
Stoney is thought to be approximately 5 years old. He is a beautiful Maine coon cat with long hair. He is gentle and quiet. Stoney is neutered and UTD on all his shots. Stoney has tested positive for FIV so he will need to be the only cat or with another cat that has FIV. Stoney is learning to trust people so it will take some time for him to warm up but he loves to be pet and loves his warm soft cat bed and window to look out of. Stoney uses his litter box faithfully. Stoney prefers canned food but will eat dry food as a snack. Stoney loves to roll around in cat nip and stretch out to take a nap. Stoney is a very sweet, gentle boy who needs a good home to call his own.
