Johnny

 

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2005

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Orange

GENDER: Neutered Male

MEDICAL: Johnny has arthritis (to be expected with his age). We are currently helping him with omega 3 oils and medication and he is doing great! There are many different treatments for pain and arthritis which can be discussed going forward with your vet. Johnny has a lump on his throat (thyroid), it has been assessed by the vet through blood work and at this time there are no concerns. However it is recommended he be monitored for any changes. We will cover his 3 month blood work check up. Johnny needs a dental, this will also be covered. Johnny has stage 2 kidney disease. At the moment this is being treated through diet and access to lots of fresh water. He does not require additional fluids or medication at this time, but will in the future. This is a very common disease and the majority of senior cats develop kidney disease.

BIO: Johnny is a handsome boy as you can see! He loves being around people and will paw you for attention. We discovered he LOVES the laser pointer! He also likes catnip toys and will rub his face into them.

Johnny came to us when his person died. He is at least 15 years old. We brought him in for much needed veterinary care updating and he is now up to date on his vaccinations and has a microchip. He had a nail growing into his paw pad, now fixed and he’s feeling much better now!

At this time the only accommodation Johnny needs is pain management for arthritis. His other conditions are stable at this time. Realistically they will likely progress over time and your veterinarian can recommend additional care at that point.

Johnny really wants to be with people. He likes nuzzling and rubbing against your legs, getting face rubs and being close. He can jump on the bed (as long as there is a chair near by) and likes to hang out with you there too. Johnny isn’t fussed by taps or showers. He’s not aggressive towards other cats but is cautious. He enjoys the company of one of the cats in his foster home and gives her kisses. While his previous home said he was good with children (and he likely is!), due to his arthritis in his back end, young children would not be a good fit. Johnny sometimes gives little love nips as well =.

This boy would be a wonderful companion who will spend his days with you! Please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Louise

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2007

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Black

GENDER: Spayed Female

MEDICAL: Overweight. Her foster home has already made great strides in helping her!

BIO: Louise is a sweet girl who is approximately 13 years old. She came from a loving home with an older couple. Louise has lived with another cat before, neither cat really interacted. Louise would be comfortable with another cat friend or two as long as they aren’t too pushy. She has met other cats in her foster home and is cautious. Louise has also met a respectful dog and was fine as long as the dog didn’t approach her.

Louise is shy at first and will hide in new situations. Once she feels more comfortable and safe she enjoys exploring her surroundings. She really enjoys pats and attention from people as long as you go to her. In her previous home she would get on the bed and spend time with her people. Louise loves belly rubs and will flop over for them! She also likes to “chat” with you and has cute meows. As children can be a bit unpredictable and loud, Louise would not be comfortable with frequent interaction with them. Older children or the occasional child visitor would be fine.

Louise does not have any health concerns beyond her weight. Her adoptive home will need to help her loose weight slowly so that future health concerns do not arise. Louise likes using pet stairs to help her join you on the couch or bed when she feels ready! Luckily she is doing quite well in her foster home on her weightless journey!

She came to us with many matts and had to have her back shaved, her fur has grown back in and she is so much more comfortable now! As with all our seniors, Louise will require a wet food only diet and a cat water fountain to encourage adequate water intake.

Louise loves to play. She moves crinkle balls and pompoms overnight and she loves the laser pointer and wand toys. This will be a great way to help encourage her to get up and moving! Louise also loves looking out the window and sleeping at the top of her cat tree. Her very favourite game is treat chase and she’ll run so fast in pursuit of a thrown treat!

Louise is looking for a patient and quiet home. She’ll need time to settle in and feel safe. Once she does, she blossoms into the sweetest girl! Whoever adopts this cutie will be truly blessed to have her in their life.
