Meow! My name is Julian
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Julian was trapped as part of a TNR effort and once he was examined, it was discovered that he had entropion so badly that he couldn't really open his eyes. This is a birth defect where the eyelids turn inward causing the lashes to rub against the eye. One of his corneas was ruptured and it wasn't entirely certain that his eye could be saved. And to everyone's surprise this poor guy wasn't feral, he was friendly! He certainly could not be returned outside so the TNR rescue group sought out a rescue situation and Julian became a City Kitty.
Julian's eyes were able to be saved, and he had surgery to fix his eyelids so that they no longer rub his corneas. He he does have some scarring on both eyes from the chronic irritation that took place before his eyelids were repaired, but his vision has not been significantly impaired. He can navigate and play just like any other cat, he just sometimes misses his target by a few millimeters (and you probably wouldn't want him driving!). This former outdoor alley cat has quickly adjusted to indoor life with cat beds, heaters, and cuddle sessions with his foster brother. With his small little eyes and big tomcat head, this big guys would make a uniquely adorable addition to any type of home.
Julian is 2-3 years old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.
About City Kitties' Veterinary Care: We provide high quality veterinary care for our foster cats and kittens. Each animal is spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and flea/parasite treatment as needed. Since they live in foster homes, you can see our adoptable animals in a familiar, stress-free environment, and their foster parents can tell you all about their personalities. If you have questions a week, a month, or even a year after adoption, we're available for guidance and support.
How to Adopt from City Kitties: Our adoptable animals are housed in private foster homes. The first step in meeting an adoptable animal is to fill out an adoption application. To ensure a lifelong match between you and your new pet, our adoption process involves an application, reference check, and a visit to your home at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is $85 to help subsidize the cost of veterinary care. You can read more about the adoption process and fill out an application on our website, www.citykitties.org.
