Background Story:

Living life as a stray, he showed up at the house of his previous owner. One day and ended up staying there for the next seven years. At the age of ten his owner was no longer physically able to care for him, he was transitioning to a skilled nursing facility and heartbroken that he needed to surrender his beloved pet. At his old age, he’s begun to experience some health problems. Blood work shows an overactive pancreas, which can be a sign of something more severe like a GI cancer. We are doing our best to make sure he’s comfortable, happy, and enjoying his golden years. A mellow, independent yet affectionate cat, he is happy to greet and socialize with guests, but will go the extra step and give a little more to the people he bonds with. His favorite place to be is out on his catio and sitting on your lap.

Current Status:

Even though the weather is getting colder, our cuddly wizard’s favorite spot is still sleeping outdoors. He’s been super affectionate as well!
