Not only would he need to be sedated to clean up his skin rashes, he needed extensive teeth cleaning with 7 tooth extractions; three of which were badly abscessed K9s. The vet thought that this was caused by chewing. No doubt in an effort to get free of that tether or from boredom. Now that he is all healed, this boy is the SWEETEST cat, healthy, happy and ready for his forever home!
Apollo would do best in a home as an only cat or with another cat who will be able to handle Apollo’s rough playing. Since he was tethered and not able to interact with other cats in his previous home, he tends to be a little strong-willed when it comes to play.
Although shy at first, Apollo adores attention and loves to be held and cuddle. He also loves to hang out on the cat scratcher and watch the wildlife outside. We’re still working on getting his weight down but with a healthy diet and continued exercise, he’ll get there in time.
Apollo has been neutered, tested negative for Feline Leukemia/FIV, and has been vaccinated. He is also very good about using his litter box and scratching post. He will be microchipped before he goes to his new home. His adoption fee is $120 + tax.
We are a foster based rescue. Please contact us to set up a time to meet this wonderful cat!
