A Very Special Wednesday's Waif on Friday

"Hi, my name is Mac!

I bet you noticed my darling picture and my sparkly eyes. I am an adorable, sweet, affectionate kitten who just wants to be loved and cared for.

It seems so simple, I know, but I've already experienced sadness and stress in my young life, so I don't take anything for granted. One thing is for sure...if you decide to rescue me and make me part of your family, I will be grateful to you every single day for the rest of my life."

"When I first came to Wayside as a baby, I was in awful shape. I was so thin and dehydrated and fragile. My foster mom realized that I needed extra love in my life, so she took me home with her and has been nurturing me into the handsome boy you see today.

Foster Mom is also a veterinarian, so besides teaching me about life as a family cat, she has helped me to learn to deal with my health issues. They don't really hold me back, and they are just something in life I have to deal with, but I want you to be aware of them all the same. I hope you're not the kind of person who will turn away when you find out I'm not perfect.

It was just bad luck, I guess, that I was born with a rare and fragile skin condition."

Dood, you're only 4 months old. You're STILL a baby!
"My skin doesn't have the collagen, or protein, that it needs to stay strong and resilient. Because of this, I am prone to painful sores when my skin is torn or damaged.

While this condition is not curable, my skin has healed beautifully and I am expected to live a good life as long as my family helps keep me protected from future trauma. I will just need a little extra tender loving care in my life, to keep me happy, healthy, and comfortable. I hope you don't mind giving that to me!

I need to be an indoor only cat. I should never be held by the scruff of my neck, even during vet visits."

"But by all means, you can pet me, pick me up, and definitely play with me! I feel and act like a normal kitten these days, so I hope you will give me lots of gentle love and attention.

But I hope you will also be willing to take me to the vet in the event you notice any future skin issues, since they are painful for me.

I am super cuddly and a love bug! I love curling up on a nice warm lap. And just like a typical kitten, I also love playing with a variety of cat toys, but my favorites are squeaky mice and cat dancers.

If you think you have room in your heart and the right type of environment for me, I would love to meet you and show you my delightful personality and zest for life!

Love, Mac"
