As warm weather fans endure winter and the long wait for spring, Francisco at Crash's Landing is patiently waiting for something much more important, a permanent home.

Crash's Landing is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue center.  Since opening in Grand Rapids in 2002, Crash's Landing has helped more than 2,500 cats. But there is still work to be done.

Each Friday on 100.5 The River is Purrrfect Friday, where we feature a cat from Crash's Landing that needs a home.

This week, we're spotlighting Francisco.

Two-year-old Francisco broke his right rear leg at its growth plate when he was less than six months old. He came to Crash's Landing from Grandville after the break had begun to heal. Today, you can see his limb is distorted, but surgery is not necessary.

When he first arrived at Crash's Landing, Francisco was treated for an ear infection. He was vaccinated, dewormed and given tests. He was soon adopted and was living happily with his elderly owner until just last month, when a new living situation made it necessary for Francisco to return to Crash's Landing.

Like last time, Francisco's stay at Crash's Landing isn't expected to be a long one. He loves attention from people and basically ignores other cats. He likes to relax and is very gentle. He has never shown any aggressive behavior.
