My story

Spot – If his bright, friendly personality does not make you instantly fall in love with him, then his unusual marking and rich golden eyes will for sure. As well as being extremely good looking, he is a total love. He likes attention, does not mind being picked up and held, and enjoys the company of visitors and the other cats in his cottage.

Spot has a grade 4/6 heart murmur. Cardiology consult and echocardiogram revealed mitral valve dysplasia and left ventricular wall hypertrophy. Atenolol was prescribed for him.

Spot readily takes his Atenolol in a small treat daily. He enjoys the treat and does not even notice that there is a small pill inside. The daily medication keeps his heart rate in a good working zone and enables him to live a happy, loving life. The medication is not expensive and easy to administer. In addition to his daily medication, he would need to be rechecked by a cardiologist yearly.

The love he has to offer someone could surely make up for the daily medication and yearly checkup. He is a great kitty with lots to offer someone. Come!  See for yourself.

More about this rescue

The Animal Refuge Center (ARC) of Fort Myers is a not for profit animal welfare society dedicated to stopping the escalating cost to impound, care for, kill and dispose of dogs and cats dying for no reason other than having been born. ARC is helping to cut the large numbers of homeless animals which eventually cuts the costs to taxpayers, which to date has reached over half a million dollars a year.

ARC is a non-euthanasia organization. Once we accept an animal for adoption, IT WILL NOT BE DESTROYED TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER. We are here to help the unwanted and neglected animals who now face certain death.
