Wilford is not yet available for adoption. We are posting his picture and story online so you can get to meet him, wish him well, and perhaps even help us make Wilford better. Wilford is an 8 year old Maine Coon mix cat. To say that he has a regal personality and 'air' about him, would be an understatement. Wilford came to our group after his former owner passed away. Wilford was left outside of the house along with his friend to try to find a new home for himself. Wilford and his friend showed up at neighbor's houses looking for a hand out. One day, Wilford's friend stopped showing up with him, and as the temperatures dropped, Wilford's situation became even more dire, that is when we were contacted about his plight. Upon us bringing Wilford to the vet for a thorough exam, it was found that he was missing half the teeth in his mouth. What teeth are left are not much to talk about either. Wilford tested negative for felv/fiv and had a negative fecal exam as well. Wilford's real problem came when his blood work detected elevated liver enzyme values. The rest of his blood work is perfect, however. Perhaps living in starvation mode with inadequate nutrition for who knows how long,took a toll on his liver. Cats that go without eating for extended periods of time will begin to have liver problems as a result. Wilford is on medication now to help make his liver values go down. Wilford was very touch and go at one point before the proper medication was started and we thought we would lose him. Thankfully, he responded to his meds and he is eating well now. As we have been monitoring Wilford, we have also run up alot of expenses. We don't know when Wilford will be well enough for adoption, if at all. We are keeping our fingers crossed that his body recovers enough with his medication. It is unclear at this time if Wilford will need to be on medication for the rest of his life or not yet. If you can help us care for Wilford, please make a donation via the link on the top of his profile or through the donate icon on our homepage. If you are interested in Wilford for your home, please keep in touch. Wilford is a very large cat who is pretty mellow. He likes other cats but is not fond of the dogs so far. He is a pretty easy going cat who seems to be deep in thought alot. He can be vocal and sometimes you can even hear him say 'hello' when he talks to you.
