This picture above shows Junior when we first got him. He was sick with runny eyes and nose. Emaciated but with a pot belly indicating lots of worms. His gums and corners of his eyes were white indicating anemia. This was partly due to the worms, but he was also severely infested with fleas. You can see the tell-tell signs of his lack of nutrition and unhealthy conditions by the faded color and coarse texture of his coat too.
This photo was taken about a month later. We treated him for fleas, worms, a head cold, and gave him his first vaccines. You can see that he feels much better by the brightness in his eyes and the healthier looking coat.
Despite his health, Junior has always been the most loving and tolerant kitten I've ever seen. This picture was taken about 6 weeks ago. My son is always carrying him around or playing with him. As you can see, Junior tolerates a lot.
Junior is always into mischief. As you can see above, he's attaching my other cat, Jazzy. He also stalks and jumps on my wienie dogs when they are out for a potty break.
Well, Junior has reached a milestone...he got neutered last week. He is a happy, healthy, cat that has made a wonderful addition to our family. Here are a few more pictures that I took today...
You can see how he's grown into a beautiful cat.
I love how his markings have really deepened and become defined.
Of course, he's still up to mischief and always playing.
