Juno's family had a baby who is now a toddler and Juno has not done well with the change. He is terrified of the child and hides and won't eat. His owner lives in Des Moines but was originally from Waverly, Iowa. Juno is a Waverly Pet Rescue kitty now. Juno is up to date on shots and neutered. The rescue also tested him for FeLV / FIV and he is negative, We did senior bloodwork on him and a urine analysis and he is very healthy. Except for another test we had him take and the fPL shows that he has an abnormal pancreas and that can be caused by stress. This is treatable and should get a lot better with food, medications and a less stressful environment.
Juno is about 12 years old as of April 2023, When we first got him, he was very scared, nervous, and confused which is to be expected for any cat that has lost the only home he has ever known. He is now starting to come around and settle in. Juno is very sweet and I would call him a gentle giant. He is a big handsome cat. He still hides but not as often as he first did. It will take him time to grieve the loss of his family and move on. He wants to trust again, you can see it in his eyes. He does like to be petted. He is a calm kitty and likes a nice spot in the sunshine to sleep. We have been told that he does well with other cats.
In a new home, he will need to be started off in a room alone and given time to adjust and settle in before you let him out in the whole house. This way when he hides at first until he gets to know you, you can keep track of how much he eats, drinks, and uses his litter box. And one room alone is truly the best way to bring a new cat home. This gives them a quiet safe space to get to know you, bond with you, and prepare for their new life.
6/7/22 UPDATE: Juno went to a foster home several weeks ago because he was not eating well at the vet office. Even with all the cat lovers there that gave him lots of attention, he was still terrified there so thought it best he go into a foster home that is more quiet. But even in the foster home, he was still not eating and drinking much. He warmed up quickly to his foster mom and gives her cuddles and head nudges. But decided to do some more testing on him and found out his pancreas levels are off. He is getting fluids every other day, prednisolone, ondansetron for nausea and daily mirtazipine to stimulate his appetite. We also had an ultrasound done on him and results show severe IBD or intestinal lymphoma. We will do all we can for Juno to help him. We will update this when we can once we consult with out vet as to what else we can do for Juno.
1/16/23: Juno is doing so much better! He is eating well and off all meds. No litter box issues but he does need the ones with high sides. I use the jumbo ones. He does well with other cats but would be best around docile ones, no bullies. He is super sweet and loves to be petted. He still gets scared with loud noises or a change in routine and will hide. He will need a patient and cat loving quiet owner. He wants love and gives lots of love back.
Juno's adoption fee is $95.00.
