Oreo was living under a shed in someone’s backyard this winter. A kind neighbor tried to befriend him, but every time she approached Oreo, he ran away. One day she noticed he had a large neck wound. She made a shelter on her porch and began feeding him. Eventually, she gained his trust, and one day when she opened the door, he walked into her house.
Lucky for Oreo, his rescuer is a nurse. After cleansing his wound, she realized he needed medical attention. She took him to a veterinarian for treatment and then AC PAW took him under its wing. Oreo easily adjusted to his new life in a foster home and his injury healed quickly.
Oreo is a very laid back boy who likes to play and cuddle in bed. He is a lap cat on his own terms. In the evening, he prefers to lay on someone’s stomach to watch TV. Oreo is very curious about all human activity. He enjoys hanging out with his foster dad doing guy chores and intently watches his foster parents clean house (really likes the Swiffer). He travels well too.
Oreo is 1-1/2 years old. He would do best in an adult home. Since he’s been an only cat in his foster home, we don’t know how he would react to another cat. He might do well with an older dog if introduced slowly. Oreo has food allergies so he must be fed a limited ingredient diet (duck). Hence, Oreo's nickname “Duck Boy”.
