Date of Birth: April, 2009
Biography: Mr. Minus is a rescued neighborhood stray from Belle Plaine, Iowa. He was either born with a short, deformed
rear leg, or sustained an injury very early in life. In any event, he had been limping along on his stump all his life,
with no pad, and it continuously got infected. His rescuer, who had been watching out for him and a couple of his buddies
from afar, was able to catch him and called Witty Kitties. We agreed to fix him up and then transfer him to another
shelter, since we don't consider most three-legged cats "special needs" (just special!!). But surprise, surprise, he
tested positive for FIV. So here he stays. Minus (for minus a leg) is a cuddler extraordinaire, and the expression
on his face when he looks into your eyes will melt your heart! He's racing around here and jumping and climbing
on things with only three legs as though born that way (which he almost was, since he touched down on his deformed leg
only every third step or so). It must hurt a lot less not having the end of the bone hit the ground.
We guarantee he will steal you heart -- and remember, FIV cats can live with other uninfected cats with no chance of spreading
the virus if they are not aggressive. And Mr. Minus is definitely not aggressive!
