Teddy is a very sweet boy we rescued from the street a few months ago. He was rail thin, dehydrated and had a very low red blood cell count. He was not going to make it much longer, but has made a miraculous recovery!
Teddy can be a solo cat or go to a home with other companions. He is neutered, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative, and estimated to be 5 or 6 years old.
He still suffers from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which is very manageable and he can enjoy a great quality of life, but he will require medication and regular vet visits to check his blood work. In January 2019 he had a SUB (subcutaneous ureteral bypass) device installed to ensure urine flows from the kidney to the bladder without any obstructions. This device significantly increases his quality of life, but will require regular checkins to "flush" the device with his vets in Manhattan. Please contact us for more details on this - we estimate Teddy's maintenance costs for the SUB will be around $2,000-2,500/year for the first few years, and then slightly lower as it requires fewer checkins.

Potential adopters meet with us and the cat(s) either at our home or an adoption event. Potential adopters complete a simple adoption application, which we review and approve. If all parties are in agreement on the adoption we set a time to deliver the cat(s) to the adopter's home. Upon receiving the cat(s), adopters are asked to sign an adoption contract and for a tax-deductible donation fee of $125 per cat (or $175 per pair). Adopters are emailed all vet records and related forms.
