Ulysses is a grand name, and this cat lives up to it! Ulysses is 12 years old, but is pretty unaware of his senior status. He loves to play, explore—and stare down chipmunks outside the window of his current foster home! Ulysses is also pretty relaxed and loves snoozing on the couch next to his foster mom and dad. A volunteer rescue group in North Manhattan found Ulysses in a disgusting empty lot in Harlem at the beginning of 2015, near another colony of cats they care for. He did not seem to know how, or why, he ended up there. Ulysses was a bag of bones and was happy to let us pick him up and take him inside. He even seemed to be happy at the vet—he seemed so relieved to be cared for again! (Ulysses has a clean bill of health, too—he is neutered and disease free.) A kind young man saw a picture of Ulysses—that face!—and adopted him. They were big-time buddies, it was so touching, but very sadly after almost a year, the young man moved and had to return Ulysses to us in early 2016. Now Ulysses is in a very kind foster home but they are working a lot and helping many other cats. We all want Ulysses to have his very own forever retirement home where he can be a star! Ulysses is not a big fan of other cats and dogs, so it's best if he is an only cat. Please email us to find out more about the incredible cat!
