Teddy's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Teddy's Story...
Theodore (Teddy mostly) is a 3 legged short-haired russian blue colored cat about 2 years old. He's a special very loving cat with an eventful history.

He probably lost the lower half of a back leg due to an umbilical cord accident (when kittens are born too quickly - usually to an inexperienced mother - and umbilical cords tangle the kittens together and tournequet off a leg). He came to us as a 1 year old with the end of his tibia only covered by skin and, while he got around well on 3 legs, he screamed in pain when the stump was touched - so he had his leg amputated higher up to resolve a source of pain and prevent eventual problems. He's healed well and can now be touched and pet in the area of his amputation without any discomfort.

Then, in December, he had several episodes of feline lower urinary tract disease (straining to urinate - no infection present) - as he was very stressed during these episodes and hard to treat medically when stressed, we made the decision to have surgery (perineal urethrostomy) done to resolve any potential for urethral obstruction. He has not had any issues with this at all since - urinating completely normally with no diet change or medications.

Hopefully that will be the end of his medical issues forever now! He's felv/fiv negative, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

He is shy with strangers and will need a few weeks at least to settle in to a new home and be himself. But, once acclimated, he's a very affectionate boy. He loves to be pet and loves to cuddle on his foster mother's lap. He gets along well with the other cats and, while he occasionally swats the dogs if they are too intrusive, he's not excessively worried about them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Teddy, a Santa Rosa Russian Blue cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Russian Blue for sale in Santa Rosa, or seeking a Russian Blue cat from a breeder in Santa Rosa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa 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 Russian Blue breeders who help with Russian Blue rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Santa Rosa paves the way for another one to be saved.
