Waldo's Story...
An Extremely Lucky Boy

Waldo is a beautiful 6 year old male who was discovered by Animal Control lying next to a dumpster on Wall St. in downtown Norwalk. He was brought to us at PAWS and found to have severely disfigured limbs.

Waldo was brought to a specialist and upon examination and x-rays, it was found that his deformities were due to malnutrition (or nutritional hyperparathyroidism) when he was young, thus causing the bony/conformational abnormalities.

In spite of his handicap, he can walk around and get in and out of his litter box. He is a loving, friendly cat. He only likes his head, ears, cheeks and chin scratched. He does not like his legs, back or stomach touched. He also does not like to be picked up and he cannot jump or manage stairs. He doesn't seem to like other cats either and would probably not do well in a home with young children or dogs.

He is presently being treated with a joint supplement called Adequan. Adequan is a injectable medicine that soothes and lubricates the joints reducing inflammation and pain. He will need these injections for the rest of his life.

Waldo is neutered and current on all his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

With the hand that life has dealt him, he surely deserves a wonderful, permanent home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Waldo, a Norwalk Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Norwalk, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Norwalk.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norwalk already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Norwalk breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norwalk paves the way for another one to be saved.
