Coco is a neutered 10 year old male seal point Siamese. Coco has an immune system disease called hemolytic anemia which requires his caregiver to give him a pill each day and prevents him from getting vaccinations. Coco loves Greenies' Pill Pockets, which make giving him his meds easy. Coco also needs to have his blood tested every 6 months, to monitor the disease. Hemolytic anemia isn't contagious to other pets and can be managed well with medication.
Coco was adopted at age 2 by an elderly woman who recently had to move to a memory care facility. She and her son desperately want to find Coco a forever home. His foster mom reports that Coco takes some time to adjust to new surroundings, but is a real lover boy. Unlike many Siamese, he's not vocal, but does have a vigorous purr. Coco shows lots of love and affection by rubbing against humans and giving little "head butts." He loves to be petted, and often drools when happy and content. Coco has had some contact with other cats but cannot be around cats with diseases or conditions that may be contagious.
Rescue Group Info...
Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.
Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
