OG ("Old Girl") is a sweet petite cat. A tuxedo who just looks like a little old teddy bear. She loves neck scratches and to be spoken to (she's one of those cats who I think doesn't realize she is a cat).
She was found wandering alone on Frank Sinatra and brought to the county shelter as a stray. No one ever claimed her, and she was too old to be kept for adoption at the county.
She was judged to be 18 years old at the time (19 this year), however, her senior blood panel was perfect, all results normal, which is unusual for a geriatric cat.
UPDATE: OG had a mild stroke recently from which she has recovered. She eats well, uses the litter box, and has no other medical issues (again, her blood work is normal).
OG is at the end of her life, and will be sanctuaried at ForeverMeow if she is not adopted or fostered (unlikely at her age). If, however, someone has it in their heart to provide her last end of life home, they will not be disappointed with their experience of sharing love with OG.
OG is part of the ForeverMeow Senior Saviors Program. That means all you have to provide for OG is a loving (local) home and lots of love and attention, which she enjoys. We will manage and fund all veterinary expenses and medication costs,and even administer the meds if you haven't done that before. She is currently not on any meds.
There is nothing more loving than a senior cat, nor more compassionate than someone who will take in a senior cat and give them true love and comfort in their golden years - that's what a "senior savior" is, and that's who we are looking for.
