Rescue In Action: Hawksley Workman

ADOPTED: Hawksley Workman was rescued from a high kill shelter when he was just a baby. In his foster home he has proven to be the biggest love bug a foster family could ask for. He was rescued with his friends Alanis Morrisette and Joni Mitchell ( both adopted).

Hawksley experienced some trauma when he was only a few weeks old, leaving him with a broken elbow, a permanent limp and lots of pain in his front right leg. When he entered the TCR program his injury was far beyond repair, so the rescue made the difficult decision to amputate his leg, thus allowing him to live pain free for the first time. Hawksley was able to quickly adapt to being a three legged kitty, only slowing down long enough to change gears. It’s hard to remember the amount of pain the poor guy was rescued from as you watch him run, leap and pounce around the house. This little dude is certainly a special one.

To say Hawksley is a cuddle bug would be an understatement. This kitten is not happy unless he is lounging on your lap, or being carried around in your arms. His purr is non-stop, except for when he is sleeping, which he also enjoys. He has the cutest meow and when you talk to him, he will talk right back to you. He loves to sleep on the bed with you at night, often right on your chest or shoulders. What a cutie!

Hawksley is a kitten so he does get up to some mischief, but playing is his absolute favourite thing. During recovery from his operation he had to resign himself to playing with a kitten puppet and a laser pointer (to avoid further injury from rough housing), but now that he is better he is looking forward to playing with real kitties again. Hawksley would love to go to a forever home with another pet so he can have a new best friend. He deserves only the best!!

  1. Hawskley… got me at “Hello” ! I will see if I can adopt you? I hope you like other cats and a dog (who thinks he’s a cat) because I have a great home for you. And….I’ve had a three legged cat before…one of the best cats I’ve ever had !! For some reason…Silver (Long John…I know lame name) never figured out he was one leg short and it never stopped him from doing anything (and he was naughty 🙂 at times).

    See you soon….

  2. Just like Hawksley, we had a 3 legged cat, also missing a front leg. He lived with us for 13 wonderful years and had no problem getting around. Hope Hawksley finds a great home very soon, I would take him in a flash if my house wasn’t already full.

  3. He is adorable…! I wish I were at the stage in life where I could adopt another kitty 🙁 but I can barely manage the one…
