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, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
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.
