George had a minor setback a while back when we discovered he had major dental and mouth issues. He had to have several teeth pulled and a few ulcers removed from his tongue and gums. He was a trooper throughout it all (the vets and their staff love him!), and is now ready to find his forever home.
Being diabetic, George needs insulin shots twice a day. They are super easy to give (the needle is tiny) and he doesn't fight them at all - especially because he gets his wet food at that time too! We've managed to keep him on normal food, and his food doesn't have to be restricted to any particular times. He eats what the other cats in the house eat and free-feeding has worked out fine. We've worked with our vets to get his insulin levels steady keeping his food normal.
George loves people. He loves being brushed, getting treats, and generally being around people. He gets along with other cats as long as they don't bully him. He's been bullied by a few cats in his foster home, and he tends to retreat when that happens, so a home with either no cats or friendly cats would be best for him. He doesn't love dogs but he doesn't fight them either. He'd probably be ok with a cat-friendly dog who doesn't bother him.
If you think you can give George a home of his own or would like more information about him, please contact his foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
