Meet Dezi

DeziGet ready for the next special needs ICS foster kitty to make some waves! This is Dezi. He ran into some bad luck and while outside on an adventure he got his left front leg REALLY hurt. So hurt that it got infected VERY badly and had to be amputated!

He was passed from shelter to shelter since around Christmas and is now in a foster home as an ICS kitty. He's having some behavior issues with nipping and biting, and many foster homes could not handle him. But so far, with one of our trained, loving foster families, he's been an absolute doll. His foster mom thinks he may be biting because he's confused and needs some love and time, and he's on medications to help him calm down.

Dezi will be going to the vet, of course, and will also be resting at his foster mom's house and getting some calm TLC. He's about 1-2 years old. He wants you to know that he wants a forever home and that he'd also like you to donate to ICS! Help support Dezi's road to wellness by using our Paypal or Razoo links on this page - you'll be able to feel good knowing that you are helping a good boy learn how to love and trust people once again!
