Special Considerations


You’ll have no trouble spotting Walter in our lobby. He’s a large black-and-white male with a distinctive black nose tip, and he often naps on our Information Table. If you see him walk, you’ll notice that he frequently circles. This is likely due to a cerebral infarction, the result of a compromised blood supply to the brain. In Walter’s case, this has probably been caused by his hyperthyroidism. As you might already have guessed, Walter is one of our Special Needs crew.

Walter is a senior, yes, but he has more energy than you’d expect for his age; if he wants to get through a doorway into a room where he shouldn’t be, he can move like greased lightning. He’s very good with most people but has been known to raise a paw toward some of the other lobby cats once in a while.

We know that Walter is not suitable for all home environments, but we believe there’s someone out there who can give this boy the loving home he deserves. If there is room in your heart and dwelling for a Special Needs cat, we ask that you consider our Walter.
