Background Story:

Milton was found as a stray cat wandering the streets of Middletown, bumping into things. He was picked up by an animal control officer where it was found he had cataracts in both eyes and is fully blind. He is also FIV+ and estimated to be around 11 years old when he arrived to our Sanctuary in 2023.

Current Status:

Mr. Milton is the sweetest boy. It must be scary moving to a new place being fully blind, but he is settling in well and knows he’s in a safe place! He loves human affection and will drool up a storm while being pet. He recently underwent dental work and had to get 17 teeth extracted! They did find an abnormal area of his jaw and took a biopsy to determine if it was cancer or an infection. Thankfully, the results came back and it was benign. It seems that his dental disease was so severe that it had created some benign changes to the bone. While the exact cause isn't known, they don’t feel it will worsen at this point. And it isn’t causing him any pain, so we’ve had the best possible outcome for this abnormal finding! He's been extra cuddly and affectionate lately, showing signs that he's feeling much better without the uncomfortable, infected teeth.

Adoption Info:

Meet magnificent Milton! This sweet and gentle guy is hoping to meet a special person and home where he can be loved and love someone in return! Milton is blind in both eyes, but that doesn’t slow him down from giving out lots of snuggles, lap naps and cuddly head-butts to anyone he meets! This 11 year old enjoys cheek rubs, sleeping in the sun, and toys that make noise so he knows where he can catch them! Milton is FIV positive, however cats with FIV can still live long, normal healthy lives. Milton would thrive in a quiet, calm home where he is the only furbaby and can receive the special love and care he rightfully deserves!
