Pet of the week: Meet Curly

ANTHEM – Curly is a male kitten, who is an orange and white domestic short hair-mix. Curly was found in Anthem with his litter mates in a shed.

Rescued from there and put in a kennel it morning. They were so emaciated that they slipped through the kennel and got stuck in a truck in the garage. Rescuers got them out of the truck.

Anthem Pets took them in and got them into a foster home. Where they are learning to trust and love.

Curly is still frightened of humans. A foster is working with him and is able to pet him while he eats or suckles on his blanket. He needs a home with someone that is willing to put in the time to reassure his safety. And know that when he growls it isn’t because he will hurt you it is because he is scared.

He has never been aggressive. When you hold him in a blanket, he hides his head and purrs while you scratch his ears.

Food is a huge motivator, and a good time to reassure him and handle him. He is a work in progress. Curly is neutered, litter box trained, up to date on shots, and microchipped. He is ready for his forever home.

His adoption fee is $85.
