Facts about Sox

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 420982
  • Hair: Unknown
Sox was brought to us after he was found living outside. He found a wonderful home with a family that loved him. Unfortunately, his extremely vocal tendencies were too much to handle, and Sox has returned to the SPCA again.

When he was found, Sox was covered in wounds from fighting with other males (obviously he was not the winner in the fights, as he is more a lover). Due to this Sox contracted Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). If he was to live in a peaceful cat home where fighting doesn't occur, the risk of infecting another cat is quite slim as it tends to be passed through the infected animal biting another animal. With the proper care and attention, a good diet, and regular preventive veterinary care, Sox should live a normal healthy life - his life expectancy is not expected to be decreased just because of this virus. Similar to the human HIV virus, FIV will cause Sox's immune system to be decreased, and thus he should always be an indoor cat to limit any chance of infection from other viruses and colds. An adopter should be willing to do regular veterinary examinations to ensure he remains as healthy as possible, and has all the help and care to fight off any infection he might get.

His previous home took very good care of him and found that his digestive system can only handle Science Diet Sensitive Stomach & Skin food, otherwise he gets diarrhea. Sox was very loved by the children and dog in his family, and never showed any aggression. Sox suffers from separation anxiety and howls when he is alone. He used to wake up the children in the house by yowling over them in bed, asking for some attention. Sox is currently on Zylkene for his anxiety, and had some luck on clomicalm for his yowling. He is allergic to pheromone collars so that is not a good option.

Sox can't wait to find the perfect home where his yowling is tolerated. Besides this quirk, he is the perfect cat and would fit into any family that can deal with him.
