Meet Anna and Tommy
Anna and Tommy were surrendered to our rescue over Easter weekend 2017. One of their owners passed away in April 2016, and the wife was recently hospitalized and is now residing in a nursing home facility. Both were scheduled to be euthanized unless an animal shelter or rescue group agreed to take the pair, as the couple had no adult children or friends to take in their two cats. Anna and Tommy's world has drastically changed, as they are no longer living in familiar surroundings with their humans that they have known their entire lives. They are now settling into their foster home and becoming more relaxed and affectionate. Anna was born in Nov. 2006 and Tommy was born in April 2007, so they are both senior cats. Both cats have had an extensive senior wellness exam with blood work and are current on vaccinations that include rabies, feline distemper and feline leukemia. Both cats tested negative for both feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus. Tommy also had a urinalysis done which was mostly normal with one struvite crystal found. Their blood work results were both normal, with slightly elevated blood glucose (most likely from stress of vet clinic visit) and slightly low BUN (kidney enzyme). Both cats are very overweight and are on a moderate calorie, urinary health prescription diet (Royal Canin S/O). Both cats have some dental disease. with Anna being in more need of dental cleaning.
We are looking for a new adoptive or foster home where Anna and Tommy can live together. They have been kept strictly indoors for 10 years, have not been around children or dogs, and ideally should go to a quieter home with no other pets. Tommy is the more outgoing and friendly cat of the pair whereas Anna is more cautious, but both enjoy pets and chin scratches.
