found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
When this little boy was in the shelter, the shelter staff thought he was blind
and named him Mr. Magoo, after the little blind cartoon character. We decided
to take him into foster care, and when he got into his foster home, the foster
mom noticed that Mr. Magoo could see everything around him just fine! And yet
there was something different about this little guy.
One day—it happened to be the day of Mr. Magoo’s vet appointment—his foster mom
was doing some routine cleaning she noticed that Mr Magoo did not move when the
vacuum cleaner went up to him from behind. He just sat there. That solved the
mystery. Mr Magoo was not blind, but he couldn't hear!
Magoo is a really laid-back guy. He will flop onto your lap and lie on his back,
soliciting your affection. Nothing seems to faze him, because he can't hear
what is going on around him. He has no fear of anything.
If being deaf makes this adorable fellow happy-go-lucky, it also means his
adoptive family will need to be somewhat protective. Of course, he must be kept
indoors. In addition, family members should be sensitive to the fact that he
can’t hear. It is very easy to step on him because he can't hear and won't get out of your way.
Finally, although we definitely want him to have a young, gentle feline companion, it will be important for his
adopters to monitor play, especially at first, to ensure that other pets in the
household don’t make him a target.
Mr. Magoo is fostered in Davis.
