Gallifrey's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gallifrey's Story...
This floofy orange kid is Gallifrey. He was a stray that was found to have a Stage 5 (out of 6) ventricular septal defect (VSD), meaning, there is a hole in the septum (wall) between the ventricles of the heart. Oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood is mixing in his heart. His heart and lungs have to work harder to compensate.

MORE about VSD: http://www.vssstl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/VSDs-in-Cats.pdf
Gallifrey goes to VSS and sees Dr. Marshall.

Gallifrey is on four medications: a pump enhancer (pimobendan), a diuretic (furosemide), a blood pressure (benazepril), and a blood thinner (clopidogrel). There is no surgery in cats to fix. He has had four ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms in the past two years and each one shows that his heart is enlarged, but there is no fluid around his heart and lungs, but continues to show the defect. Gallifrey will continue to need ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms from the cardiac specialist every year to monitor the progress of his heart and lungs and he will need to stay on his medication for the rest of his life. This is in addition to his regular yearly vet visits.

Gallfrey acts like any other kitty. He is a happy and loving kitty that loves to run and play, under supervision, and run and play and run and play. Did I mention he loves to run and play? He loves his cat buddies and knows that dogs can be friends. He absolutely ADORES kittens! Gallifrey enjoys his toys, too. He loves to sit on the couch with you and watch movies. Gallifrey will steal your pizza and popcorn, too. AND he has the FLUFFIEST tail! He is a non-stop purring and playing machine!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gallifrey, a St. Louis Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a St. Louis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
