Earl's Info...

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

Earl's Story...
Earl is very good cat. He is estimated to be about 7 years old. He isn't big on toys and tends to lose interest after a short amount of time. He'd rather lounge by a window or at the foot of your bed. He takes a little bit to warm up to you but doesn't have any major issues trusting anyone. He loves his head and chin scratches and if you scratch his upper shoulders you get a nice low rumble of a purr and it doesn't stop! Once you get Earl purring from pets and scratches he will usually beg for more. He only likes Temptations treats but be careful not to give him too many. He very much loves his corrugated scratcher and he loves the top seat of his cat tower. Earl is a great companion for someone who likes a cat who prefers to lounge but not necessarily in your lap but close by. He is affectionate and when he wants your attention he will come to you, but takes much content in just being in the room. He also loves being brushed and the furminator is his favorite.

Earl is diabetic. He gets 1.5 units of insulin twice a day after mealtimes which doesn't bother him in the least.. After spending a lot of time with Earl and really learning his condition we have discovered with the right environment, right diet and with someone able to take a glucose reading 2-3 times a week he can go periods of time without needing any insulin. So far Earl has been able to go up to 3 weeks not needing any insulin. We believe he may have some sensitivity on his feet and can only use certain litter to avoid too rough of a texture.

Earl also has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV+), which is a cat-only disease that decreases the ability of the immune system to fight some infections. FIV+ is not easily passed between cats. It CANNOT be transmitted casually through shared litter boxes, water and food bowls, or when snuggling or playing. FIV is most commonly transmitted via deep bites during cat fights, the virus is present in the saliva of infected cats. With appropriate care and treatment of chronic conditions, most FIV+ cats live long, healthy and relatively symptom free lives.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Earl, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Worcester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Worcester 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 Worcester 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 Worcester paves the way for another one to be saved.
