Special home sought for a special feline

Catherine Gupton, director of operations at the SPCA, plays with Yolk.

After journeying to the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA in an egg crate box, this kitten was named “Yolk.”

Catherine Gupton, director of operations, said Yolk has feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and stomatitis, an inflammation of the mouth and lips. Due to the stomatitis, most of his teeth were removed.

Yolk “has to be on wet food (diet) only, but he is a real sweetheart,” Gupton said. “He’s not usually a very cuddly kitten but he enjoys being shown affection and being petted. He’s absolutely an angel. We love him. He needs a special home.”

Due to the FIV and stomatitis, Yolk may require a few more veterinary bills than a standard cat, Gupton said.

The price to adopt cats and kittens is $20. Yolk is neutered and current on his vaccines, she added.
