Hi, I am Norbert. I was found under a tree during a very hot summer day. I was experiencing heat exhaustion. Someone thankfully found me and brought me inside just in time. They had me for a few days and took me to the vet to be scanned to see if I had been lost. The vet said I didn’t have a microchip and I was already fixed and about 10 years old. We searched and searched for the place I came from. NO LUCK. I was going to be put back out on the streets if I didn’t find a place to go soon, and outside is not where I should be. Luckily, Stray Haven Rescue stepped up to make sure I was taken care of in my old age.
The rescue made sure that I was fully evaluated health-wise and then I was place in a foster home. The vet stated that I was in the early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This is a very common condition in cats my age. The treatment I am getting right now is just a special diet (this does not need to be prescription food - we can make several suggestions for good over-the-counter foods that are ow in magnesium and phosphorous) that will help my kidneys, including WET food! I love WET FOOD!!
The foster home I am in has dogs, which I get along fine with (I am the boss). I love to be loved. I will come up and snuggle, but I like to spin in circles when I am petted (which makes it very hard to get good pictures). Please be on the lookout for more pictures of me soon. I am looking for a nice lap to call my own. Will you let me share yours?
