found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and declawed.
Here is his story. He was bought from a breeder as a kitten and his mom had him declawed at 4 months. She basically no longer wanted him by the time he was four so he lived his life thereafter entirely in the bedroom of her step son. They were very close and bonded.
This young man, now living out of the house at 21 or 22 yrs old, contacted us to surrender him because he felt despite loving him that he could no longer care for him. It was us or a shelter. I knew If he ended up in the shelter he would likely not get onto the adoption floor (that is a euphemism for euthanasia). I knew I had to take him in.
Being surrendered was super hard on George. When he arrived he was very depressed and blue. He refused to eat anything. For days. We worried. Ragdolls are very emotional cats. I know this because they are one of the main breeds I have fostered over the years and I have seen this over and over..They do not take losing their homes well.
This magnificent boy struggled to make the transition from a life only involved with this young man to a life entirely without him. Now four months later he has been coming out of his shell and is enjoying himself and making friends. The other day he walked right up to say hello to two visiting strangers. Wow! Look at him, I thought, he is ready to go home. He needs a home that will be respectful of his emotional, deeply-bonding nature, a stable, peaceful, loving home. This is something I think he has probably never had. He will feel the emotions of his humans so he needs happy adopters.
Yes, he could lose few pounds. Ragdolls are known to be big, but he is a little bit over the line. He has been living in one room or small spaces for too long. He came to us in a lion shave and his fur is still growing out from that. You can see how bushy his tail is. He is a fancy, purebred cat with all the trimmings including a big coat. His eyes are more green, or in some lights, aqua, than the common blue of most ragdolls .His owner said he is a snuggly cat who likes to be petted and lie next to you. He loves to be brushed and loves attention from people he knows and trusts. He speaks to you, especially at dinnertime. George has so much fun and gets VERY silly on catnip.
Gorgeous George eats a urinary tract diet of dry food (Purina Urinary SO) because he had urinary crystals at one time. He probably needs to stay on this type of food for life. It is not a problem because he likes this food. He can have the canned type of this food and he has eaten it for us, but right now, he does not want it, so he is very easy to feed. He has not had a repeat of the crystals problem since he has been on this food which is 3 to 4 yrs.
He does, however, need someone to wiggle a feather and help him work off some energy and ounces. Urinary SO (which has a particular ph level) is very rich in calories and cats love it. We keep it around just to tempt non-eating cats with, so he is lucky to need it and get to have it forever.
He eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
