16 yr old Ollie is looking for a foster home while his owner moves to their own apartment. He is a sweet boy who was diagnosed with Hyperthyroid therefore he has issues using the litter box. Here is a bit about him and his owner's journey: "Ollie has been declawed before I adopted him and he has developed arthritis over the past few years. The first thing I noticed about Ollie the first day I saw him was how afraid he looked in the shelter. I immediately promised myself I will do everything I can to either find a home for him or bring him home with me. Ollie is a very sensitive old guy and who has nothing but love and affection to offer to his companion. He deserves a quiet home with a companion who has a good amount of time to spend with him. He has been around many litters of kittens as well as 3 dogs (chiweenie, puggle, pit bull mix terrier). I was fostering before my mom lost her home and this is the time Ollie has been exposed mostly to the kittens. Ollie did in fact nurture and cleaned the kittens very often. Once the kittens reached about 6 weeks of age, Ollie would prefer his time away from the very energetic and playful kittens. I slowly got him used to wet and dry food and I do buy many different brands (whichever is on sale), as long as its grain free, no meat by products, and is holistic. I have him on glycoflex stage 3 joint support for the past year and it has helped him dramatically with his arthritis and overall joint health. ( I am willing to provide his vitamins so I can have the comfort of knowing everything in his life won't change "again" for him. He is also on daily probiotic that supports his digestive and immune functions as well as lysine. (All three of the vitamins are by vetriscience but I do sometimes get Vermont). As far as treats, he is my good boy who learned to eat just about anything I give him. He loves wilderness blue buffalo the most but also loves wellness kittles and other grain free treats. I give him wet food about 1-3 times a week depending on how much dry food he has been eating or how late I come home from work. Ollie has given me nothing but a loving and purrful experience and even though he has a major litter box problem he is far more rewarding than this nuisance. If I had my own apartment I would not be filling out this form. Other than his litter box issue, his blood work showed that his liver and kidneys were great especially for his age. I can't get myself to surrender him to the shelter because my goal is to find an apartment I can afford so I can take my Ollie back eventually. Until this happens I am no longer allowed to keep him in the room I stay in any longer. I am willing to pay for his food, meds, treats, and provide his litter box and litter if I can find a temporary home for Ollie."
