Finley is Waiting For You
There’s just one more day until Big Day of Giving, and we’re excited for your support—not to mention, we need it. We’ve taken in about a dozen very special cats recently, all with different stories from different walks of life. As you can imagine, they all require a specialized plan to set them up for success in the future.
Finley is one of those cats. He’s a sphynx, the breed of cat most famous for its lack of a coat. He was surrendered to a county shelter for euthanasia because he’s got a bit of the wild side.
Sphynx cats are known for being mischievous and outgoing, but also lively, affectionate, and cuddly.
But just like we’ve said before, every cat is an individual.
Finley was never cared for properly. He also had multiple homes—he’s bounced around a lot in his two years, never being given a chance to settle in and never finding the right family—until now.
When you donate to us for Big Day of Giving, you’re enabling us to do more for cats like Finley.
You see, Finley was surrendered because of biting. We don’t know the specifics of the scenarios, but likely the lack of care and commitment bothered him, and he wasn’t afraid to show it.
Thankfully, the county shelter called us and asked if we would take him. We said yes, because, interestingly, we have a foster family who is a “naked cat expert” and willing to take on a challenge. She has several sphynx cats and has dealt with all kinds of behavior—so Finley is right up her alley!
Finley is still settling in but he’s incredibly friendly and sweet—so it takes a cat-savvy person to communicate with him and understand the signs of when he is overstimulated or upset.
We ran some basic diagnostic tests on Finley to make sure his health is in good shape—it is. The one big thing he needed? To be neutered—and that right there has already calmed him down and he’s mellowing more day by day. He still has a long road ahead, but the foster is excited to get him home.
Finley needs your support for Big Day of Giving. He may not need extreme medical care like other cats, but his behavior is just as vital for his health and longevity.
Our goal is to give Finley the environment and family that will allow him to thrive without feeling threatened so that he can enjoy the life he’s been given.
Big Day of Giving is tomorrow, May 4. When you give to us, you’re giving to Finley and all the cats like him who need us to go the extra mile.
Visit our special Big Day of Giving donation page to make your gift. Finley is standing by to offer his high-five of appreciation (and so are we).
P.S. You can donate now, schedule your donation, or wait until tomorrow, but please, we just ask that you give. Every amount matters. Every amount makes a difference. Together, we will keep saving the cats like Finley who deserve that second chance.
