Franklin is a Flamepoint Siamese cat who is three and a half years old who we adopted as a rescue kitten from “Friends of Pets”. He is a wonderful, playful cat who loves his dog friend Annie who is a one year old Australia Shepherd puppy. Frankie is a very well traveled kitty as he spent many months with us in our 36 foot motor home traveling around the west. He is leash trained so he can do some exploring outside and doesn’t have to be confined just to the motor home and house. He can pretend he’s a great hunter cat too so being outside is one of his favorite things of all. He is a great inside mouser as well and any time he can will capture a tiny intruder if possible.
Last winter Franklin got sick and was diagnosed with kidney cancer. He has responded remarkably well to the therapy and we could not be happier at this point with how he is doing so far. We are so pleased with the care he has received at West Ridge and how well they have worked with and coordinated with the specialist in Medford. He is back to playing with and attacking his 50 pound friend Annie again and getting slobbered all over! -Sheryl Beverly (Frankie’s Guardian)
Frankie is such an awesome cat! His personality and perseverance in the face of adversity is truly inspiring. Recently I went in the back to say “hi” to Frankie after his chemotherapy and he was so curious and loving, he just came right up and placed his front paws on my chest to look around the rest of the room. Although I know coming here probably isn’t Frankie’s favorite part of the day, his visits sure brighten my days! -Chris
