- Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Zorro is in the beginning stages of kidney/renal failure. He needs k/d (Kidney Diet) wet and dry food (readily available at local stores) and daily medications and vitamins. He takes his medicines and vitamins in an oral syringe. He tolerates them well. He may need additional treatment as he ages and his kidney disease advances, including veterinary visits, fluids, etc. He is a real sweetheart.
Dear Zorro has been surrendered to the shelter twice in the last year. He lived with his previous owners for the first 13 or so years of his life (a significant age for a cat), until they passed away. Then, he and feline sister came to the shelter. They were quickly adopted, but Zorro's family felt that he was too much responsibility, so they re-surrendered him 9 months later.
An older fellow to begin with, Zorro came back in thin condition and with an elevated heart rate. Bloodwork revealed that he was in the beginning stages of kidney failure. Since his diagnosis, we have started Zorro on k/d (Kidney Diet) food and several daily meds and vitamins to help support his kidney function. He has responded well to these treatments and we hope that they will continue to provide him with a good quality of life.
Due to Zorro's age and medical condition, his next forever home could be considered a hospice home. His new family can expect to give him daily meds and treatments (via a syringe which he takes well), and to monitor him for medical changes. He may requite extra veterinary visits, but at this time his care is able to be managed from home.
His personality is one of sheer LOVE. He has been described as a "lovebug" and a "sweet, shy" guy. He hasn't let his setbacks hold him back. Though initially depressed with he came back, he has responded well to human attention and now simply loves to be around his humans. He enjoys sleeping on his high shelf in his pen and walking around our Cat Meet and Greet room. He has handsome markings and a cute little face.
We would love for Zorro to find that special home of his own again. A place where he can be comfortable and adored for the rest of his days. Is Zorro tugging at your heartstrings? Don't resist the urge! Come down and visit him. He is ready and waiting in Pen 17.
