Our newest addition-Artie!

This is Artie's story:

My boyfriend and I were walking up the stairs to our apartment and heard some meowing. This dirty but friendly cat was following us and meowing at us. He came inside with us and got some dinner and rest. He went to the vet the next day. He was tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia and was negative.

He started to have diarrhea and was put on medication. After about a week he was still having problems but was well enough to be adopted. He was adopted. A week later, an adoption counselor called to see how Artie was doing. His new "parents" said he was sleeping a lot and not as active as he was when they brought him home.

The adoption counselor told them he needed to be seen by a vet. They said they did not want to take him to the vet. She then said, either take him to the vet or bring him back to the shelter. They brought him back and I took him to the emergency vet. I happened to be cleaning at the shelter that day. At the vet he had 104.8 fever! He was very sick. His temperature should have been around 101.5 degrees.

So, I nursed him back to health and he got better. After a couple of days, I was entertaining the thought of adopting him.

After many days of introducing him to my other cats and testing the waters, we decided to keep him. He has been a pleasant addition to our family!
