Pet name:
Crookshanks has been one of our long term medical cases. We got him last fall from our colony, and when we looked in his mouth, it was clear that his teeth were not doing him any favors. After a few days at Cheat Lake, he came back to us with no teeth! Crookshanks will need a calm, patient home who is ready to take care of a cat who is unsure about the world around him. He is a chill old man who just wants to eat his wet food and stretch out on a cozy bed. He does not require hours of play and is perfect for someone who wants a companion, but cannot devote hours to kittens. The best home for Crookshanks would have no other pets or less dominant pets who will let him have his space, have a lot of space for him to chill out, and have plenty of windows for him to birdwatch. He will need to be on a soft food diet for the rest of his life. We are unsure about Crookshanks’ age, but would guess he’s on the older end, maybe 8-9. He lived a hard life outside, and just needs to be smothered in love. He is FIV positive, but that does not stop him from living his life. He is litter trained, but does require a lower litterbox due to his old joints, however, accidents do happen. He also has a harder time grooming himself, so gently brushing is a must. He is a good cat who has been through a lot and is not thriving in a foster home full of kittens, not all old men are happy playing grandpa to a bunch of kittens!
