Hi all! This is my first post on the Tripawds forums, although I've lurked for quite some time!
This little cutie is Roosevelt/Link! He's a four year old front-tripod kitty that I'm fostering for the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter. He had his right front-leg amputated last month due to injuries from a BB gun. He had a few minor injuries that have healed up that he got from being a cat not exactly well suited for the outdoors. There are no other long-term medical issues to worry about.
He has a sweet disposition, loves to cuddle up and purr on your lap, and gets along really well with other cats. He does enjoy playtime, but for the most part he's laid back and enjoys keeping his human company. He was all set to go to a forever home this week but the adopter pulled out last minute (for personal reasons, nothing this sweet little boy did or didn't do), so I'm setting up meet and greets with potential adopters once again! I have a full post about Roosevelt/Link on my Tripawds blog. You can also take a look at his listing on the BARCS website.
You can get the process started by emailing me at email@example.com to check availability for a meet and greet. The meet and greets take place at BARCS and you would need to fill out an application and get approved prior to meeting Link. I would be thrilled if a Tripawds member wanted to adopt this wonderful snuggle buddy. BARCS does adopt to out of state residents if you happen to be in a state nearby.

Welcome to the Fourms! Your future posts will not have to wait for approval.
Have you been lurking while fostering Roosevelt? I hope he finds a forever lap soon!

Thank you kindly Karen!
I raised my first trikitty from kittenhood and had her for 12 years, Tripod. She recently passed away and I miss her so much, so I wanted to use the skills/knowledge I had gained from being a tripod parent to help other kitties. I've lurked here off and on for the past year or so. I adopted one trikitty and started fostering for the shelter I got him from, BARCS. That's how I ended up with sweet little Roosevelt. 🙂
