Bean… White and Orange Tabby, male, 5 years old as of July 2018, declawed.
Bean is outgoing, sweet and friendly. He is a very outgoing and friendly even upon meeting strangers. He is such a talker. He is also very active and loves to play with toys. Bean is looking for a stable and loving forever home. He would do well in a home with other cats or dogs as long as he is integrated slowly. The dogs/cats already in his new home need to be friendly and respectful. He would also do well with children of any age as long as they have been taught proper cat handling skills.
Bean was adopted as a kitten from Waverly Pet Rescue. Unfortunately, he was declawed and then developed a bladder infection and was returned to Waverly Pet Rescue. He was then adopted by someone who decided to get a Husky about a year after he adopted Bean and Ari (another WPR cat). Soon after the owner adopted the dog, he decided to return Bean and Ari to WPR.
He was very sad and traumatized from being shuffled around so much. It took him some time to settle in and become comfortable and happy again. After he was returned the second time, he also hurt his back jumping down from a shelf that was too high. During this time, he was having difficulty using the litter box. He went to the vet for a full check-up to make sure there was no medical reason for the problem. Nothing was medically wrong, but the vet and I agreed that he had been through a lot and it was probably physical (from the injury), psychological or behavioral. His back healed well! I did a lot of behavioral training with him. I mostly focused on telling him he was loved and wanted. When he was having problems, he received reiki, massage, chiropractic and we started using a feliway diffuser.
His depression and feelings of abandonment are resolved, and he is VERY happy and outgoing again. He loves attention and would really love to be in a home. He still occasionally has trouble going outside of the box. It happens only about once every 2-3 months. I just learned about a new trick as I am editing this profile that we are currently trying. I heard from other seasoned foster parents with litter box issues that they added a couple litter boxes with just potty pads in them. The problem stems back to having sensitivity in the paws from the declaw and the litter does not feel good. While most cats with this problem will usually use the litter box when it is really bothering them they will go in the pee pad boxes instead.
I want to make sure he goes to the perfect home for him. WE do not want him to be returned again. If you believe that you can handle having a cat that goes outside of the box infrequently and love him anyway then he is the cat for you. It is very important that he go to a home that has plans to keep him for the rest of his life. He has been moved around a lot in his earlier life and he is ready to be settled into one family or with one person. He really is a great cat! I do believe if he was in a home where he was getting a lot of attention and love he would go outside the box even less.
Bean’s adoption fee is $95.00. He is neutered, up to date on shots and had a teeth cleaning in May of 2017 and Jan. 2020.

If you have assault, domestic abuse, or drug charges please do not apply. If you have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $200 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
