American Curl

An adotable cat in Brooklyn, NY

  • Senior
  • Small
  • Female

AMERICAN CURL BREED RESCUE - Tavi & Friends is a breed rescue for the American Curl cat through our TAVI's CURLS PROJECT, such as ABIGAIL, pictured (more info below). The American Curl is a delightful breed with charmingly back-curled ears, and often referred to as the Peter Pan of cats as they retain their kittenish personality for life. Many of the Curls we take in have been abandoned by their families, losing the only home theyve known. Some may be geriatric, have special needs, or just need a little extra TLC. Prior to adoption, rescued AmCurls will receive any necessary veterinary and wellness care. AmCurls who are ready for adoption will be posted as available. If you are interested in adopting this breed, please contact us for availability and/or pre-approval. Read more about this delightfully whimsical breed on our website: www.TAVIandFRIENDS.org/id19.html

ABIGAIL -- This California Curl is a Survivor !
From Expressway to Broadway, she’s a survivor! ABIGAIL is a very sweet 12+ senior American Curl cat with gorgeous emerald green eyes. Definitely once someone’s pet, she was abandoned on an expressway where a local shelter officer found her. Now a senior, when she should have been loved and cared for, she found herself alone without family or home. That’s where we found her and made arrangements to bring her to NYC and take her into our care. She was very ill when she arrived in our sanctuary, nothing but skin and bones. We immediately brought her to the vet where she was diagnosed as being severely dehydrated and having severe IBD. After months of care, Abigail is doing well on medication and a special diet now. This (now) NYC senior is available for adoption into the right home and family, and would make a wonderful senior companion.

But -- we also need your support to continue helping Abigail: her IBD is chronic and she is on a special diet and medications which are costly. Abigail needs sponsors to help with the medical expenses. Please consider sponsoring Abigail through Petfinder (button at top), or through our website: http://taviandfriends.org/
Abigail thanks you!
