Shooby is a very sweet boy who enjoys spending his days lounging in his little bed by the radiator or looking out the window, watching the world outside. He really enjoys being brushed and is more than happy to spend hours chilling by your side. Shooby is not a lap cat but has started to enjoy short hugs from his foster parents. Shooby is a perfect roommate - he is litter box trained, doesn't counter-surf and is overall a very sweet gentleman.
Shooby is a special needs boy and has intestinal lymphoma, early kidney disease, and arthritis. Despite these hiccups, his prognosis is looking good and he is living a very comfortable, happy life! His arthritis is well managed with special mobility food and pain medications, and his early kidney disease is easily managed with diet and subcutaneous fluids. Intestinal lymphoma may sound scary, but it is actually a slow processing cancer, and many cats can live to several years old with treatment - are you ready to be Shooby's new forever retirement home?
Shooby is very well managed on medications - which he LOVES to take because they are hidden in delicious treats! It becomes a game where he gets to chase his delicious treats around the living room - it is so cute! He also gets several injections which can be daunting at first, but his foster mom is more than happy to show you how to give them, and Shooby is such a good boy that it is totally worth it! His care takes only a few minutes a day and you wouldn't know he had these conditions by how happy and loving he is.
Shooby prefers to be the only cat of the household and has not been tested with dogs. He is extremely cute and fuzzy and is happy to get love and attention in small doses, but also enjoys spending the day home alone. If you are looking for a calm fuzzy companion Shooby would be a great fit.
