Hank was found as a stray in Waverly, Iowa. No one claimed him so Waverly Pet Rescue took him in. He is up to date on vaccinations, tested FeLV / FIV negative, and already neutered. fecal checked and treated. He is also diabetic. Our vet can help teach you if you have never given a cat a shot before. It is actually fairly easy to do.

Hank is about 16-1/2 years old as of January 2023. Poor fellow is very skinny and would not have lasted much longer on the streets. He needs insulin twice a day. It is very easy to give him these shots. He also needs to eat a special prescription food. Our hope is that we can get him to be a kitty that does not need shots, that it can be regulated with food. We will test his levels again in 4 weeks and see how he is doing. Hank is somewhat timid at first but a super sweet kitty once he gets to know you. Very passive and kind. He just wants love and food, and attention when you have time. Hank warms up quickly once he feels safe. He loves to be petted. He loves to stretch his front legs out and knead a blanket. He is super skinny right now but should gain weight once he is blood sugar levels are stable for awhile. His condition was quite serious when we got him.

Hank will need insulin twice daily (every 12 hours). He needs to be on a special food called Science Diet m/d, $60 a bag. The insulin is $106.25 for a bottle, and according to his current dosage that bottle should last him for 40 days. The needles are $32.50. Those should last approx. 100 days. We will send along all his supplies to get his new home started.

12/29/17 UPDATE: Hank is the sweetest kitty ever! Super friendly, purrs often. He loves attention and to be petted. He went to the vet today and had his bloodwork rechecked. He is doing well, but needs to gain more weight. He is at 7 pounds right now. Hopeful this will help him gain weight! Hank is super easy to give the shots too. He is also a great eater and is happy to eat all the food I give to him. Please consider giving Hank a forever home!

7/30/18 UPDATE: Hank is awesome! He has gained weight and is doing great! He weighs over 11 pounds. We finally got him on track! He gets 6 units of insulin twice a day. He eats Diabetic wet and dry food twice a day. He is a friendly and loving kitty!

2/24/20 UPDATE: Hank continues to do awesome. He is a great eater. He is super friendly to us and enjoys being petted. He also should do ok with other cats. He enjoys being comfy in a cat bed. He loves to be able to look out a window. He likes to explore and check out the house. Sometimes he will zoom by you going as fast as he can, ha.

Will someone please adopt Hank and give him a forever home? $50 adoption fee.

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.
