Stormy came to us in the middle of the night – in the midst of Hurricane Sandy – when we found him outside, alone and crying in the wind and rain. He was dumped from someone’s car as they drove by our home. We took him in immediately, and he’s grown accustomed to our many large dogs and other cats. In fact, he’s “one of the gang” at this point.
Stormy is a special kitty in that he is a polydactyl. This means that he has an extra toe on each front paw. Actually, he looks like he has a thumb, or is wearing mittens. It's very cute.
Stormy is a purr-fect little kitty. He's very easy-going and fits in everywhere. He loves everyone he meets - people, dogs, or other cats. He's friendly to all of them. He's very playful as well as SUPER affectionate and loving. He loves to cuddle and to be petted, and purrs as soon as he's touched. He loves to play with feather toys. In the picture with 2 kitties in the basket, he's the one in the back. The other kitty is Violet, his foster sister.
Unfortunately, shortly after arriving at our home he started having seizures. He was evaluated by our veterinarian, and placed on a preventive dose of Phenobarbital, which has been able to control his seizures. This will be a life-long problem for Stormy, but the medication that he takes twice a day seems to be working. HE MUST BE GIVEN THIS MEDICATION RELIGIOUSLY- WITHOUT FAIL - AT 12-HOUR INTERVALS. The medication costs only about $5/month. He is very easy to medicate. The special family that adopts this special kitty must be aware of his special needs and be willing and able to provide his medication on time each day without fail. Other than the seizures, he is a very healthy, playful, and loving cat.
Stormy is FELV/FIV negative, has had all of his vaccinations and boosters, and has been neutered. He MUST be adopted by an individual or family into a loving INDOOR ONLY home environment, given his risk of seizures. If you are interested in meeting Stormy, please call or text Kim at 570-412-0152, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Stormy will make a wonderful addition to that purr-fect family. Perhaps that's yours?
