He's a love machine

Professor Pudding is the most abundantly whiskered fellow we've seen in a while! Look at those glorious face-feelers!  At 12-years-old, he was let go from his professorial position without tenure because he could no longer see the blackboard. What's an aging fella to do? His foster mom is guiding him into retirement and helping him learn the layout of his new digs.

Here are just a few highlights from his distinguished career:

  1. Casting disapproving glances
  2. Doctorate in making biscuits
  3. Best Whiskers Award (2004 - present)
  4. Perfect cursive

His big plans while waiting for adoption are finishing his memoir and making more biscuits. 

Joking aside, The Professor is blind. His former owners cast him out the door to fend for himself. A house cat all his life and unable to see, he is very fortunate a neighbor noticed him struggling in the front yard and called animal control. Professor's foster mom has fallen head over heels in love with him. She says he is the most wonderful creature and that he just melts for scratches and rubs. He purrs like a Mac truck, drools with pleasure, and even snores when he sleeps. Though The Professor is now in a happy, loving home, his struggles aren't over. He's in the early stages of kidney failure, which requires daily medication, supplements, and a special low-protein special diet. Sadly, the vet says there is no cure for The Professor. All we can do is keep him comfortable during his senior feline years But he continues to amaze us with his ability to fight the good fight. Since he began treatment, his kidneys are improving, he's gaining weight, and his energy is up. In conjunction with his foster mom, we've decided to leave him as available for adoption, despite his disease. He still may have years left and he still shows great zest for life. We think there may be someone out there who's right for him...but if not, our guy has a wonderful fospice (that's hospice foster) home until the end. 

The Professor's fixed, chipped, and up-to-date on shots. His tax-deductible adoption fee is $100.

About St. Francis Animal Protection Society

About Our Rescue Group...

A Northern California nonprofit founded in 1971, St. Francis Animal Protection Society (SFAPS) is there for at-risk animals -- from shelter pets and strays to cat colonies and animals who need a new place to call home. We advocate, educate, and rescue.

As a community-run organization, our work is funded entirely through charitable donations. We focus on dogs and cats at highest risk, regardless of age, breed, or medical condition. And we do what it takes at all costs -- whether that means medical testing, treatment, and training or compassion, care, and companionship. Because we believe every animal deserves to live a happy, healthy life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a physical facility -- all our adoptable animals are living the good life in foster homes with people to pamper them until they make a love connection.

Our Adoption Process...

Are you interested in making a St. Francis animal a part of the family?

Great! Submit an inquiry and we'll touch base within 24 hours to discuss your interest. If it's a good match, we'll set up a meet and greet and have you fill out an adoption application. Then, if it's love at first sight, we'll finalize the adoption with a signed agreement and adoption fee.

We may require a home check as part of the adoption process.
