When Boehm first took Cricket home, he was a tiny mess. The breeder had clearly been neglecting him, and he was sick and severely malnourished. Boehm, a college student, stayed home from class on Cricket’s first day home so that she could care for him and make sure he was doing OK. With a few days of love and care, Cricket got stronger and began to heal, and after getting checked out by a vet, it appeared that the unique little kitten was going to be just fine.
“Cricket seemed right at home when he arrived,” Boehm said. “He wanted to snuggle all day long! After he gained some weight and got unconditional love from me, he was on his way to full recovery.”
