We have great news to start the weekend. Mouse has been adopted! He joins his fellow colony buddies, Puff Daddy, Merlin, Zorro, and Manny!
Mouse was trapped back in early January at Operation Hood and has resided at Loving Touch Animal Hospital ever since. He had a huge mass on his neck that required surgery and he had to wear a cone for a month. Mouse terrified us for the longest time. He would hiss, growl, and occasionally lunge at volunteers caring for him. Then one day, and it seemed like overnight, a softer, more gentler side of Mouse appeared. We put toys in his cage and he loved to play. We also started giving him Temptation treats, which he LOVES! He pounces on them like he is trying to kill them! Mouse still doesn't fully trust humans but he is very curious. When volunteers clean his cage, they would have to wash around him and he would tap our hands with his paw (no claws). We don't know how Mouse ended up at Operation Hood, but he is now in a safe, warm, loving home.
Congratulations Mouse! We are so happy for you, but will miss you terribly!
