We adopted Scout after bringing him home from the shelter to recover from surgery resulting from abscessed porcupine quills and a tick-borne infection that was affecting his kidneys. Even under those circumstances he was such an easy going, lovable guy! He and our corgi, Mollie hit it off immediately. Mollie’s other friend, Benny (a previous feline foster fail through HSBC) also loved Scout right away and the three of them became a play group.  Long story short, Scout’s recuperation/foster turned into an adoption!  We love him (and his shedding)!  FYI, he has completely recovered from surgery and his kidneys are functionally normally.
