Isn't OREO the most unique looking kitty???  His black & white spotted coloring makes him really stand out. (and then there's his one-sided curly mustache!!!) Oreo has a calm & tolerant, easy-going purrsonality, and is very social and talkative.  He likes to cuddle under the bedsheets and play with you while in bed; and then he loves to sleep next to you.  He's about 8-9 years old, sometimes playful & active and wants to be where you are.  He was initially raised with children; was very good with them and has lived with other cats and dogs.  His preference would be as an only cat, as the king of his castle!  (or maybe only 1 or 2 other animals)  This kitty is originally from Georgia, then lived in Texas, then in Ohio.  His original family couldn't afford to keep him; he had spent a good part of his earlier life living with an untreated ear infection/inflammation that became chronic.   He had an ear polyp removed from his left ear twice (1n 2018 and 2019); but it grew back yet again almost immediately.  Vet recommended ear canal removal surgery; he was in so much pain that we didn't have much choice but to go ahead with it - performed on 11/19.  He had difficulty recovering; and ended up at the emergency vet a few days later with extreme difficulty breathing - there was fluid in and around his lungs; they identified it as congestive heart failure, possibly brought on by the anesthesia used for his ear surgery!  So now he's on daily heart medication and a diuretic (morning and night); thank goodness he's easy to pill!  His heart condition will be lifelong; it can be managed with medication; but he's going to need monitoring and occasional vet checkups.  He has also shown to have an allergic reaction to topical flea meds, so we've found that an oral pill form of flea medication (if/when needed) seems to work quite well for him. He's  been neutered, vaccinated, combo-tested - negative - for feline leukemia (FeLV) & FIV, de-wormed & de-flead,  and micro-chipped.  The adoption fee is $50.00.  If interested in adopting, please fill out our application at  http://www.purrfectfriendscatrescue.org/adoptform.
