Van is a short haired ticked tabby. A ticked color pattern is unusual; it means that each hair has a band of color on it but the tabby color does not separate into stripes like nearly all tabbies do. That makes this fellow pretty special. He was found in a parking lot and had been the victim of abuse for months, making his very leery of humans. However, his tail was injured so it was important that he be caught and taken to a vet, which finally happened with the help of a live trap. Once trapped and transported to the vet, it was found that he had at one time had something wrapped tightly around his tail and his tail was too damaged to save. It was amputated and he went into foster care at the Adoption Center. He is now a very friendly cat, wanting to spend all his time with people. However, he does not like other cats so he needs a home where he will be the only cat. He will be the kind of pet that follows his family around the house, loving to be near them. Van would be great with people of all ages, including children.
