Meow! My name is Cocoa
|Breed:||Balinese||Color:||Cream Or Ivory (Mostly)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
I feel GRRRRREAT!!! Move over, Tony--there's a new cat in town. I've had energy therapy and put the past behind me. In my new life, I have lots of energy, I'm eating non-prescription food and I'm a big furry bundle of love. I'm ready to share the new me with you.
My name is Cocoa and I'm a 2 year, 2 months old Balinese (long haired Siamese) cat--sweet and adorable with a foxy tail and handsome tufty toes. I love to give furry hugs and hang out with my foster family. I'd like to have a friendly buddy to romp and cuddle with and I'm very good with kittens. I've had some problems, as you can read below. But right now I'm doing gggrrrreat! I require a little TLC, but you'll find I'm worth it.
I am a really sweet, loving guy who wants someone who likes to snuggle. I will love on you, and all you need to do is rub my tummy and scratch my chin. I'm very playful and love a variety of toys and kitty perches.
I've been to see some specialists and it has been determined that I have entropion (entropion is the inward rolling of the eyelid. The hair and eyelashes on the affected lid continuously rub against the cornea. This can cause significant discomfort and trauma to the cornea) as well as eosinophilic lesions on my lip (the vet suspects I have an allergy to something, so I've been put on special food), and that an underbite was causing my lower canine teeth to cut into my upper palette, so extraction of those teeth is necessary. Other than these things, I appear to be healthy and I'm happy and playful and a real joy to be around. I will be going in for surgery on 5/18/11 to have both the eye and tooth issues taken care of. If you are able, please consider donating to help with my surgery and care costs. It is estimated that even with the extremely generous discounts of the vets and specialists helping me that my vet bills for diagnosis and the surgeries will be around $2,000.00. See the sponsorship request paragraph below for details on how to donate.
Cocoa came through his surgeries just fine and is back in his foster home where he can recover comfortably. Check back for updates.
I have totally recovered from both surgeries, and am doing very well! As a result, I am completely off medications, and am currently being fed Rx Royal Canin Rabbit Formula food (both canned and dry). So far, I am responding without anymore breakouts, so the Dr. is confident that my allergy is to a food. However, we haven't done a food trial to determine exactly what the allergy is.
I love to play and tumble, but I do have a tendency to nip when Im playing so I probably wouldn't be an appropriate fit for families with young children. My foster meowmy's granddaughter knows how to scold me when I get a little carried away when playing with her. I have never left any marks, and we're still working on this issue, but I wouldn't want to frighten your little one. If you can continue to work with me, then please come and visit with me to see how loving I really am.
I am now eating Hills Prescription Diet ZD dry food (not canned ugh!), with a little Metamucil sprinkled on top. My litter box looks much better and I have gained a little weight in the past month. If you currently have a ZD-diet kitty or have one that would do okay with being switched to that food, maybe you would consider letting me be a playmate for him or her. If you will come and visit with me, I will promise to charm your socks off!
Foster meowmy says I should tell you that I am a TOTAL lovebug!
I really need a kitty companion, so I must be adopted to a home that already has a friendly, playful kitty or I need to be adopted with another.
