Corky found his forever home!
When we got the call from Thomas and Allyn F. of Portland, OR saying they wanted Corky, it was a day of joy! Corky was ready to be adopted after a life of cruelty and now his new life is divine! Living with Monks suits him just fine…having his own personal Garden of Eden is a bonus. Flowers, pathways, water features…and home cooked chicken! It’s what he had always dreamed of…now he has it all! A big congrats to Brother Corky!!
Corky is a victim of cruelty. He was confiscated by animal control authorities in Maryland where he led a life of starvation, thirst and filth. He was covered in ticks and fleas which were cleaned off one by one. He was severely underweight at just 14 lbs. In fact, with just normal feedings, he has gained 5 lbs in one week. He came in with bald spots, dry flaky skin, brittle hair, heavy tartar on teeth. He does not like his back feet to be touched as the only surface he has known is wire cage. The spaces between the wire can really hurt their feet which is why he may be so sensitive. This boy needs someone who will nurture him and show extreme kindness. His condition is one of the two worst of the group from this case.
Here is Corky in his new home:
