Breed: mackerel tabby
Birthdate: August 21, 2007
Sex: male
Good with kids: children 10 years of age or older
Special needs: insulin injections and regular vet visits


Charlie was hit by a car and permanently injured one of his front paws. Fortunately that doesn’t stop this sweet mackerel tabby cat from getting around and living a normal cat life. Charlie can even climb to the top of cat trees and cages. He may be a little slower than a fully functioning four-legged cat but he is very resourceful and determined. Charlie has also recently been diagnosed with diabetes which is manageable just like it is in humans. But because Charlie requires insulin as a maintenance medication and regular vet visits to ensure he stays on a good health path we are looking for someone who can care for Charlie as a permanent foster. This means AALOC will pay all the medical expenses for Charlie but he will live with you as your own cat.

Charlie is a bit shy at first but like most mackerel tabbies once he warms up he is a very affectionate feline. He likes being held and is pretty good at sitting on your lap or just reclining next to you on the couch. Mackerel tabbies are known to be very curious and intelligent and overall a very friendly and loyal pet. Charlie would make a great best friend. 

Please submit an application to adopt Charlie. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet Charlie and get to know him a bit.
