(when grown) -
Not good with dogs,
Good with cats,
Shots are up-to-date,
Update October 2023: I am still plagued with lesions from stress and some food allergies. I am ever so loving and I am a lapsitter. Love to be petted. Can be picked up. Still take my meds for the skin lesions. I will be where ever you are. Love my human - seems I prefer the female type.
More updates coming!
Happy 2022 Holidays from Beau! My first Christmas tree with my foster.
While my neck and skin lesions have healed, there is still something that causes them to return. As a last resort, I gave blood for two types of allergy tests. Waiting the results as the tests were taken before Christmas.
...and yes, I am still struggling with diarrhea...it is less liquid...had so many tests to find its cause...I baffle the specialists!
In the meantime, I am the most loveable guy...am a lapsitter...follow my foster around...I am most definitely a people type of feline.
Two updates follow:
*** Update on 21 March *****
Based on the Vet appointment today (21Mar), Beau has been placed on medical hold and removed from the Pet Adoption Center on 21 March.
He will undergo more intensive care of his lesions with increased use of Keto Wipes, a Keto shampoo 2 -3 times a week, along with two medications and a Rx specialty dry and wet food to help minimize his diarrhea. Vet suspects he may have IBD?
In addition to these issues, he has dental disease which was annotated Jan 2021 with his prior owner - no action taken then.
Foster Assessment: Beau is the BEST patient ever! Tolerates everything EXTREMELY well. He appears to be less anxious. He even sat on top of his bed. He remains in a large 48" cage - with plenty of room - in fact the real estate is much larger than the Pet Center cage/room. Due to his treatments and to assess / work with his anxious / anxiety driven behavior, he will remain in the cage with approved supervised outings away from the resident felines. His appetite has improved - both in dry and wet forms. His cage is near the living room area so he has access to the TV and the view of the felines.
****Update 5 April*********
Vet appt 1 April showed a 2 pound weight gain and all raw neck and tummy sores/lesions healed. Skin treatments to continue. Rx food working as diarrhea less, but still persistent. Vet saw roots showing in the upper and lower part of mouth, he may be in pain. Dental surgery (9 extractions +) scheduled for 27 April. After recovering, he will be available for adoption. In the meantime, will continue to work with his shy hiding behavior when not in the cage.
Foster Notes: Beau LOVES attention. A Lap sitter - will stretch out, squirm and curl up for a nap. Loud noises (even a cough) startle this exotic looking feline. He will run away. His favorite spot is under the DR hutch. A behavior we are addressing.
I am a HANDSOME deep gray tuxedo. Classic and Refined I am....and....I have returned for the third time through no fault of my own!
I am a VERY GENTLE SOUL, Mellow, LOVING guy seeking my fourth family and a loving home. Read more below.
Now about the photo array:
#1 - taken 19 April 2022 at my Fosters Home. All my lesions have healed. Resting comfortably.
#2 - taken on 12 March 2022 after some lovin'....ahhh...the real me is showing. I am one Loveable guy.
#3 - taken January 2021 at the Pet Adoption Center before my adoption. This is what I use to look like....so much change in a year as the other photos show.
#4 - taken 12 March 2022. My fur is coated with meds to help the skin lesions heal. I was informed that I developed lesions on my skin from my anxiety and then scratching them. All of this happened during my year of adoption, January 2021.
I LOVE to be petted, held and brushed. But....the brushing near my face and neck may have to be delayed till I finish healing. LOVE that affection and attention.
I start off shy, anxious, and sometimes even nervous, but with just a gentle rub from your hand, I will place my face into your hand and stretch out hoping for more attention. I hide to feel safe. I have been through so much with families and their moves....all the time leaving me behind and surrendering me. Honest, I am a real Charmer. Just be patient and let me feel safe with you....that is all I ask of you.
I get along with cats. Dogs unsure. Kids unsure - perhaps older children?
Loud noises and fast movements scare me and I will hide. Best to be a second cat or can be the only cat provided my human can function as my mate for bonding. I am seeking a support human and a quiet home!
My first Mom adopted me and my Brother (Mittens) when we were 4 months old and after 4 years, surrendered us because she was getting married and the stepson is allergic to cats. We arrived to the Pet Adoption Center on 17 December 2020.
We were adopted together 27 December 2020, but our family was going overseas and only taking Mittens as he had bonded with the family and does not hide. I was returned before they left the country on 21 January 2021 mainly because I was always hiding. When I was with Mittens, he would join me in hiding to comfort me. Now I am alone and without my Brother. I am much better with a comforter - another mellow, non-bully type cat or with a human.
I was then adopted on 24 January 2021 and owner surrendered to a local VA shelter on 11 March 2022. Yep, they had to go cross country unexpectedly...and I was not joining them. The Shelter contacted CRI as I should have been returned to them per the signed contract.....they came and took me from the shelter and I am back to the Pet Adoption Center on 12 March 2022.
Phew...a lot of moves for me ....and...the past year, was not so good for me health wise. I now am in pretty poor condition. I am not even allowing photos ....okay...will show the good sides - but not yet. I also loss a lot of weight...my bones show.
I have developed severe facial, neck and under jaw dermatitis. My prior owner declared it was from stress and anxiety, but never cited the source of the stress or anxiety. So I am glad that I am back to the Pet Adoption Center. For the time I was with my last family, they never fed me wet food. Today, my first day back and just a few hours of getting into my room/cage, I am served a plate of wet food! I had three servings - small to medium portions...and licked that plate clean.
