Atlas has NO weight on his shoulders

Meet Atlas with his huge paws and sweet demeanor. You can’t help but love this guy.

Atlas comes to us from Riverside Drive where his previous owners could no longer afford to care for him.  He also comes with some pretty serious issues. He is an old fella … 10-12 years old. We believe he is part Maine Coon and at one time must have been about a 20 pound cat. You can see from his back this is no longer true.  He is a sweetheart and mostly all he wants to do is use those big feet of his to make biscuits wherever he finds a place to make them.

Atlas is FIV positive and has other issues as well. The vets aren’t sure yet all that is wrong with him. Whatever his ailments, they are making him not eat. One of our volunteers is trying to force feed him to see if we can get him up to par just enough to hang on for future treatments for his other issues.  He has a long way to go to make it.

Poor fella needs some serious love and care.

Atlas may have held the world on his shoulders in Greek mythology but our boy, Atlas, has a long healing process in front of him and is going to take many trips to the vet and lots of money. If you can find it in your heart to help him by donating for his vet care, he will greatly appreciate it and so will we at Cats Are Us.
