Bean… White and Orange Tabby, male, 5 years old as of July 2018, declawed.
Bean is an outgoing, sweet and friendly cat. He is 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 home.
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 him. We do not know if he was having litter box issues in this home. The dog and Bean never got along so Bean (and Ari his roomate) were again returned to Waverly Pet Rescue.
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 psychological or behavioral. 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 felliway diffuser.
His depression and feelings of abandonment are resolved, and he is very happy and outgoing again. I have him in his own room as he seems to do best by himself. I have equipped the room specifically for him. He has a bed and a couple cat towers but there are no rugs or blankets in his room. He is very happy here and he is very loved. He still occasionally has trouble going outside of the box. We do have other cats in the house other than Bean. I do not know if he is going outside of the box due to the fact that there are other animals in the house. Possibly if he was an only cat he would stop going outside of the box. However, I believe part of the reason for going outside of the box stems back to when he was declawed as a kitten. One very important reason to not declaw an animal. It may be a lifelong occasional occurrence for him. 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 and clean up after it when it happens 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.
Bean would probably be best adopted as an only cat. He loves people and a lot of attention so would be great in a family or to a single person. He would do great with kids of any age that have been taught proper cat handling skills. He really is a great cat!
Bean’s adoption fee is $95.00. He is neutered, up to date on shots and had a teeth cleaning in May of 2017.

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.
