This Cat is a courtesy listing for its current caretaker. The cat is not in our care but we have been advised it needs a home and is fixed and current on vaccines. Please understand the process may be a little different since the pet is not with us.
Hi, my name is Scooter. I am a very friendly, grey and white domestic short hair. I am affectionately known as my human's furry best friend and I also answer to 'lover' because I'm just so sweet. I am 11 years old. I weigh 12-13 pounds. I love to play with strings, toy mice, and feather toys. I especially like the mice that squeak. I go bonkers for cat nip and cat treats. I do best with a strict feeding schedule with controlled portions or I will seriously over eat. I used to be 23 pounds. My humans and I have worked hard together to get my weight in a respectable range. I know how to use the litter box, but lately I've had a hard time using it like I should. My mommy just had a human baby and I'm having a hard time adjusting to the new family dynamic. I like to go outside, but I don't have front claws and I tend to wander off if you don't watch me carefully. I get along well with the other two cats in my house. I haven't been around dogs before. I really like adults and I come out and meet guests at my house.
Scooter has hyperthyroidism that he takes medication for daily (methimazole 5 mg daily). He had occasional issues with marking before baby arrived, but once the house started changing (re-arranging furniture, stricter enforcement of house rules, less attention from us, screaming baby), his marking really picked up and started becoming an almost daily occurrence. We've tried giving him amitriptyline (5 mg daily) for his behaviors and it seemed to help at first, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference now. He needs to find a new home ASAP because of the health hazard to our baby.
PLEASE NOTE: Since he is declawed it is believed by a vet who specializes in cat care that his potty issues is pain related due to declaw & that with daily pain control medicine & possible behavioral medicine that Scooter will not have these issues. This information is provoded by a Pet Angels Volunteer & the original owners may not share this same view. I would be more than happy to talk with anyone interested in adopting him about all this in detail.
**The pain & behavioral medications he requires will be provided during his transition time into his new forever home. After that time the new owner will be financially responsible for daily medications the remainder of his life. He will also go home with a supply of his current thyroid meds.
The adoption fee is $75 for kittens under 6 months old and $50 form cats 6 months and older.This cat has had its age appropriate Vaccinations brought up to date with Rabies shot (4 m & older), FeLuk/FIV tested, basic dewormer, spayed or neutered.
