He's a Love Machine

Professor Pudding is the most abundantly whiskered fellow we've seen in a while! I mean, 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 his helping hand, someone to guide him into retirement and be patient while he learns the layout of his new digs. His CV highlights: casting disapproving glances, making biscuits, finest whiskers in town, perfect cursive, and an uncanny affinity for tweed. His big plans while waiting for  ‪adoption ? 1) finish drafting his memoir, 2) make more biscuits.

The serious version: 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. As if that wasn't enough sadness for one old cat's story, we've recently learned that the Professor is in the early stages of kidney failure. He's on supplements and a low protein special diet to support his kidney function, in addition to some special things to stimulate his appetite and help him keep some weight on his old frail bones. We are sad to say that the Prof won't recover from this, BUT we have no way of knowing how much time he has left...could be months or could be many years. We are keeping a close eye on his energy levels, his appetite, and his blood chemistry to make sure he's comfortable. 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, PP has a wonderful fospice (that's hospice foster) home until the end. This guy, albeit in his fall/winter years and without sight, is one remarkable cat. You'd be lucky to have him as your own...and he's hoping he's lucky enough to find YOU, that one special person out there who is destined to become The Professor's Headmaster!

About St. Francis Animal Protection Society

About Our Rescue Group...

In early 1971, Helen Galantiere had a vision; she was frustrated by the inadequacies and ineptitude of local and national organizations that claimed to be working in favor of the animals. She became a pioneer in animal rescue by starting one of the first 501C charitable organizations dedicated to educating people about the proper way to care for their pets, working to stop laboratory testing, and addressing the issues of overpopulation and crowded animal shelters. Incorporated in December 1971, The St. Francis Animal Protection Society was launched in 1972 as she worked tirelessly to place thousands of homeless pets, while writing a weekly column for the “Marin Independent Journal” titled “Animal World” educating the public on humane animal care. She touched the lives of many people and creatures; dogs, cats, and an occasional monkey or rabbit that came her way, and although her tough demeanor with people often left enemies along the way, she never relented on her quest to be a presence for the animals. On March 23, 2010 she passed away at home with hospice care at the age of 89. Her daughter, Caron, now runs St. Francis, continuing the legacy that her mother started forty years earlier.
