Anestis: This tripod kitten needs your help!

Will you be his forever family?

Anestis needs your help!

Anestis, an approximately 6 month old male kitten, was found scared and injured by a good samaritan two months ago. He was brought to one of the Animal Welfare Karpathos volunteers. He had sustained multiple left hindlimb fractures as well as a left hip luxation. He was a semi wild kitten in distress. Our volunteers took action immediately and Animal Welfare Karpathos covered all the associated costs for his amputation surgery and therapies. The surgery was performed successfully by Dr. Elias Pochos, who kept Anestis at his clinic for a few days in order to make sure that he was recovering uneventfully.

For the past two months, Anestis has made a remarkable recovery and he is not w wonderful young boy who loves attention! He is now tame, house broken (urinates and defecates in a litter box) and will be neutered this month!

He is ready for his forever home, as he is not a good candidate to be released back to the streets. After all, he has put so much effort into becoming an elegant male cat, so he deserves only the best! He is able to function perfectly well with his remaining 3 legs. He is playful, but also calm when placed in his crate.

Animal Welfare Karpathos would like to find Anestis a forever home; ideally one that will keep him indoors only. He would do better in a house with no dogs.

An interview and an application are necessary. If you would like to adopt Anestis, please visit the Adoptions section of our website here or email us at (please note his name on the subject line).
