Luke is one of our great success stories. At 5 months of age, Luke was hit by a car in a gas station parking lot and was saved by a Good Samaritan just moments before he was to be tossed into a dumpster. Humane Tomorrow immediately got Luke the surgery he needed to repair his front right leg - it was fractured in six places. His recovery required weeks of cage rest and physical therapy to allow his leg to fully heal. From all that TLC, Luke has blossomed into an amazing cat. He LOVES to snuggle, sleep right beside you, and be around people all the time. He purrs instantly when touched. And comes racing to you when you call out his name. Luke may walk with a limp and sometimes get about on only three legs, but that doesn't stop him from being a normal cat. He loves to play with you with fishing pole type toys and wrestle and play chase with his kitty friends. And, when playing solo, Luke is immensely passionate about the twist tops from milk jugs. So much so that is foster mom found a place online to order him 100 so he has a life time supply. And boy oh boy, does that make him happy! He does require a couple of modifications. One, if you have any really high furniture like a bed, he needs a cat tower or something nearby to help him jump up and down. And two, Luke absolutely cannot gain any weight as additional weight can lead to arthritis and complications in his leg that could result in amputation. This simply means feeding Luke measured amounts of food for 3 meals a day and NEVER caving in to his demands as this cat ADORES food and will beg for more. He can't be in a household that free feeds their pets. Luke had a follow up appointment with his surgeon at the beginning of 2017. Everything looks great and has healed wonderfully. There is a very remote possibility that someday, down the road, Luke would need a surgery to help straighten the crooked leg. An adoption counselor can explain more about that but as long as he is monitored and weight kept under control, he should be fine and lead a perfectly normal life. There are simply no words to describe how perfectly charming this little boy truly is and we hope you want the opportunity to get to know him better!
