Date of Birth (estimated):
Taboo is a very sweet and handsome boy looking for a very special and understanding family of his own! This young man has been through so very much! He was declawed a few years ago but it was not a great experience for him. He has sore paws and as a result, doesn't love using his litter box to poo. He is currently waiting to see a special surgeon that can repair his damaged paws.
Taboo was also fed a very poor, inadequate diet for many years, and as a result (like for most cats fed unbalanced diets), Taboo developed some urinary issues. Urinary symptoms are completely well managed as long as he's being fed a special urinary diet!
He does tend to pee high, so he has a special tote that is used for his litter box.
He's a shy guy at first, and needs some time to adjust to his surroundings, but once he does, he's a total love bug! He likes to sit with his humans and purrrr!
Taboo has had a tough go and could really use a dedicated, patient and understanding person to give him the love, care and attention he deserves.
