Pogo *Special Needs*
 This affectionate gentleman is Pogo! Pogo is a special cat with a lot of love to give! Young at heart, this spritely tuxedo kitty loves getting any and all of the brushes and pets. When he’s not checking himself out in mirrors around his new home, he won’t be shy in interrupting your Zoom call to muster a few more pets. Although Pogo does not have experience living with other animals, he did previously live in a home with young children! This special guy is a part of our Hospice Program because he has been diagnosed with possible lymphoma or IBD as well as a few other long-term medical concerns. His lifespan may not certain, but his companionship and silly personality are guaranteed :) Because of his medical needs, Pogo will require a prescription diet as well as what are likely to be lifelong medications, so an adopter should be prepared to have close relationship with their veterinarian. Fortunately, this very sweet boy has continued to stay stable for the past month in foster care. Now he's looking for a special family that can keep him comfortable for whatever remaining time he has. He will, in return, use all of those days to love on you and remind you how grateful he is with sweet chirps and long purrs.  Age: 9 years How I came to PAWS: Surrendered to the local Philly shelter after 8 years with the same family Animal ID#: A48983 ​I am not at the shelter.
