Rescued Cat Needs Home!

I'm writing you on the advice of a woman I spoke with at the Bowers farm in Bloomfield Hills. I am sadly looking for a new home for my cat, Joseph. He is a stray I rescued last year from the streets of Detroit. He is a male black-and-white tuxedo cat, neutered, with his claws, and who has gotten all of his shots. He is a really wonderful cat who has gotten along well with my other cat and with my kids. He is never bitten or scratched at all. He has a great disposition. Incredibly friendly. Very cute and cuddly.

The only problem we have is that he does not use the litter box. This is because the vet says he has something called feline interstitial cystitis. We have tried to treat it but nothing has worked. Because of this problem, he tends to urinate in the house. This is been going on for a year. I don't know what else to do but to try to find a farm somewhere where he might be able to live in a barn. He is an indoor/outdoor cat who actually loves spending most of his time outside. I'm unwilling to take him anywhere where I think he'll be killed, and I'm not going to abandon him. So I'm writing in the hopes that you might be able to spread the word about my cat and try to find him a new home, somewhere where he can be cared for and live in an environment that is appropriate for him.

I appreciate any suggestions or references you might have. If we can find a new home for him, we're willing to provide a gift card for $100 to a pet supply store for food and other supplies.

Thanks so much for your help. Please give me a call or let me know if you need any other information. You can reach me at stajahnke@gmail.com. I have attached a few photos of Joseph so you can see how cute he is. :)Krista Jahnke
