Hop to Ash­ley

Ash­ley was found as a very young kit­ten on the streets.  A lovely wo­man took him in and cared for him, but she is now ill and can no longer care for him.

The 17-month-old cat is now in the care of North­east An­im­al Res­cue and in search of a per­man­ent home. He has a con­di­tion that makes him walk like his legs are stiff and he is march­ing.

Oth­er­wise, he is a very sweet and happy cat, and he rab­bit-hops around the house to play with the oth­er cats. He does not re­quire any spe­cial care ex­cept cau­tion around stairs, due to his altered gait.

Ash­ley is neutered and cur­rent on vac­cin­a­tions, and has tested neg­at­ive for the fe­line im­mun­ode­fi­ciency and leuk­emia vir­uses.

To ad­opt Ash­ley, fill out an ap­plic­a­tion at ht­tp://nar.res­­im­als/de­tail?An­im­al­ID=5137980 ••
