Cats are funny creatures. There are a lot of jokes about cat owners being merely staff to their beloved felines, but sometimes you come across a cat who seems genuinely grateful for what you do. Such a cat is our Sherbet, the most gorgeous, deep orange tabby we’ve seen in some time.
Sherbet was found along the side of a road. Aside from being very hungry and a little dehydrated, he was OK, so he couldn’t have been outside for too long. From the first, he showed nothing but love for us, extraordinary for a cat who had absolutely no idea what was happening to him. His affectionate behavior has continued throughout his quarantine period.
Our best guess is that Sherbet was born around March of 2004, so he’s a senior cat. At some point before he came to us, he had Perineal Urethrostomy (PU) surgery, sometimes performed in the case of recurring blockage in a cat’s urethra or if a cat has FLUTD. We have not noticed any urinary anomalies with Sherbet, but we will continue to monitor him. Sherbet has FIV, so he’s one of our Special Needs felines.
If you have a place in your heart and home for a delightful senior male, do consider our Sherbet.
