When we moved to Idaho, my parents took him in. We decided to shave off his fur that was horribly mangled, and let him run free outside like he had always dreamed of doing. I have to say, for the past year he really has had the time of his life. Not being fixed...made him very popular with the neighborhood lady cats. In fact, I am positive that this summer there will be quite a few litters of half persian kittens for sale.
