Chichi

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2008

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  White

GENDER: Spayed Female

MEDICAL: Deaf, osteoarthritis, heart condition (last 2 treated with meds)

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/chichi-55253659/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO: Chichi is a sweetie pie with pretty white fur and light blue eyes. Her eyes have been hard to see because she came to us with horribly infected sore eyes. We treated her eyes with medication for several months without resolution and the vet determined she has entropian! This is a condition where there are hairs touching the eyes. She had her first surgery in February and after recovery it was determined she needed a second surgery.  She has recovered from both surgeries and is doing great! She came with Mikey but they are not bonded and Chichi would prefer not to be adopted with him.

Chichi adores catnip, cozy cave like nap spots and cheek rubs. She is a little less confident than Mikey and will need time to settle in. Chichi has osteoarthritis and walks in an unusual way because of this. She’s now on pain meds and this helps. Chichi had very bad teeth, but after a dental surgery she is feeling so much better! Chichi is deaf. Chichi does have a heart condition that was discovered and is now on once daily medication to support her. 

Chichi loves heated cat beds! She will not come to you, but if you go to her she practically falls over trying to get cheek rubs and heads pats. She can be picked up but prefers not to be and since her back end can be sore from osteoarthritis so we don’t pet her there. She enjoys interactive play time with wand toys. We think in a home without other pets Chichi will flourish! 

 

Sammy

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2002

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Orange and White

GENDER: Neutered Male

MEDICAL: Arthritis, High blood pressure, stage 3 kidney disease, dental disease

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/sammy-55249728/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO: Sammy is a lovely super senior boy looking for his retirement home. He loves his naps and cuddles and is quickly comfortable with other cats. He is not dog tested but with proper introductions and a calm dog we think he would be okay.

Sammy has high blood pressure which is controlled with medication. He is stage 3 kidney disease and receives wet food, and also fluids 1-2 times weekly. These are both common medical conditions for super senior kitties. Sammy also receives pain medication for arthritis and dental disease. Given his age and high blood pressure he is not a candidate for a dental surgery, so he receives pain medication and antibiotic treatment to help his mouth stay comfy. 

From his foster home “ He is really attentive to the baby. He comes and checks on her when she cries and wants to lay by her. He also does his walk around the apartment every few hours to make sure everything is in order! He has enjoyed his heated bed a lot and loves to cuddle and play.

He loves pets, being picked up and snuggles. But spends the majority of the time on his heated bed.

I think he may be a little bit deaf, it takes a few “Sammy”‘s to get his attention and sometimes I startle him if I walk in.”
