How do I tell you about our OJ? He’s a declawed senior, with a handsome buff-and-white coat. We were undecided about putting him online as an adoptable cat, because his health is currently quite fragile. But, like some other felines you’ve read about here, OJ is an excellent example of what Tabby’s Place does. Most shelters would not have been able to take him in at all.
OJ, you see, has a form of skin cancer. Now, that in itself might very well be treatable, but we suspect he has a mass in his bowel duct. If that’s true, it’s unlikely that we’ll do the invasive treatment that would be necessary to try to rid OJ of this mass…but if the mass has not grown after a few weeks or so (it’s 10/30/16 as I write this), we’ll assume it is not cancer, and we’ll begin treating his skin cancer.
We believe that OJ was born in August of 2007. Given his state of health, he’s one of our Special Needs crew. We don’t expect him to be adopted as he is now, but we do ask that you hold a good thought or two for this gentle and loving boy.
