Meet Lark

Hi! I am Lark and I was born in 2014. I am a long, black and white neutered DSH kitty, and weigh about 11 Ibs. I absolutely love other cats! I am in heaven when other kitties want to cuddle with me or give me a bath. Right now, I am a little afraid of humans, but having a friendly kitty around will help me to change that. Whatever the other cats are doing, I really want to do that too! I need to be an “indoor only” cat, and am up-to-date with all my vaccinations. I would love to be part of your family. Lark came to us as a bit of a mystery. Lark had extensive FORLs (feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions) which resulted in him having a huge majority of his teeth removed and he currently only has his canines. Lark still does well with eating kibble though. There is high possibility the canine teeth will need to come out eventually, but it is unclear when exactly that will happen. In the past, he was found to have a heart murmur and this may need to be followed up with a specialist.
Transition: When Lark first arrived, he was very scared. If he can find a place to hide, he will. He will not scratch or bite, but he will hiss. He should be isolated in a room with food, litter, and a bed for a day or so to acclimate to the smells of your home. You will probably hear him meow at night, especially if you have other cats. Once you feel comfortable, you can introduce Lark to your other cats. Putting your cat in a carrier and putting him in the same room is a way that you can safely introduce them. Lark warmed up very quickly to all of my cats. I also have a very low-key dog who pretty much ignores Lark. Lark and she had no issues, so Lark would do ok with a dog in the house. He also hid a lot from my two children, especially if they moved. He would probably do best in a home with older children, other friendly cats, and can
adjust to a calm dog.
Behavior- Lark will need some time to feel comfortable in a new environment, but eventually, you will start to see him around the house more often, especially when you are sitting and not moving much. He may also sneak up and sleep with you at night, especially if your kitties do this. This time is the best chance of petting him. I usually put my hand by his face and he will then rub his cheek on my hand and will eventually start to purr. I cannot pick him up, but I could see, over some time, that he may let you. Lark will not really play with you too much, but if you leave him out toys, he will play with them. He also needs a cat scratching post, as he
really loves those. He is food motivated, and he will brave contact to get food once he feels more comfortable.
Food: Lark is currently eating 1/4 scoop of
Iams ProActive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care Dry Cat Food and 1 can of Fancy Feast twice/day.
Grooming- Lark does not require a lot of maintenance, but brushing is a great way to bond. He will tolerate a bit of brushing. I would recommend nail trimmings be done by a groomer or vet.
Litter- Lark is litter trained and has no issues. We are currently using Cat’s Pride: Total Odor Control Litter.
Medical- Lark had a dental procedure on 11/4/2020. Most teeth removed and he only has canines left. The vet says that those may also have to be removed eventually. Please note: All cats and kittens require an on-line adoption application to be completed and sent BEFORE consideration for adoption can take place. On-line applications at We are an all-volunteer group so please allow 72 hours for a reply.
