Peanut's Story...
COURTESY POST-bmore-Peanut is playful, affectionate, and definitely a staff favorite! He is a 2 year old neutered brown tabby DSH. He was surrendered to us by his owner, and they made sure to tell us all of Peanut’s favorite things! He loves to sun himself in a comfy window sill, head rubs and scratches under his chin, drinking water from a faucet, sleeping curled up with his people, and of course kitty treats! He didn’t ever scratch at things, and used his litterbox like a champ. He will tap you with his paws if he feels that it’s time for some attention. He has never been around children, and isn’t a fan of car rides. While here, Peanut has made fast friends with everyone, and keeps all around him entertained with his goofy antics. Ever the kitten still, Peanut will play with anything he gets his paws on. Peanut developed severe conjunctivitis, which, even after treatment, caused a painful, non-healing corneal ulcer in the left eye. When supportive care failed to resolve the infection, the decision was made to remove the eye. The procedure was successfully performed 12/15. He is recovering extremely well and is currently comfortable and playful. If you ask him, he wouldn’t even know anything was different! At this time we recommend his sutures to be removed 12/29, which is 2 weeks following the procedure. We do not expect any further issues with this surgery, but on occasion an enucleation site can leak fluid. If this, or any other irregularity is noted at the surgical site, he would need further evaluation by a veterinarian. Additionally, although not evident at this time, the other eye could be at risk for viral conjunctivitis in the future, so we advise veterinary care if disease is noted in the intact eye. He has been altered, vaccinated, and combo tested negative. A veterinary exam also revealed that Peanut has a grade two heart murmur. Murmurs are caused by turbulent blood flow in the heart and treatment depends upon the underlying cause. Murmurs can be caused by a variety of conditions such as structural abnormalities within the heart, systemic problems such as anemia or metabolic conditions such as hyperthyroidism. Innocent murmurs do not require treatment. Cats can live normal lives with murmurs and it may never cause a problem. We recommend that Peanut should be evaluated to see if an underlying cause for his heart murmur can be found. Peanut is available for placement with an Adoption Partner, or adoption to an owner that is understanding of his medical needs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Waldorf 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 Waldorf 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 Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Waldorf paves the way for another one to be saved.
