It’s hard to understand people’s actions sometimes. Rupert was adopted from Tabby’s Place in 2010, believe it or not, and he was returned to us in mid-March, six years later, because his adopter was moving. He’s a singularly attractive boy, with medium-length fur; there’s a patch of brown tabby over his head and on his back, and he has a fluffy brown tabby tail, while the rest of his fur is white. He was born in March of 2000, so he’s a senior feline. At some point early in his life, Rupert was declawed in front.
At least time has not changed his personality. Rupert was a calm, loving guy when he was adopted from us, and he remains that way; he’s even good about taking his daily medication! As he is hyperthyroid, Rupert is on meds for that twice daily. We have recently detected HCM, the most common type of feline heart condition, in Rupert, but there’s a catch. His thyroid issues were not being well managed. Sometimes, when that happens, cats can develop symptoms of what seems to be HCM without actually having HCM. So, once Rupert’s hyperthyroidism is under control, we’ll re-test him for that HCM.
If ever a feline truly merited a loving "forever" home, it’s our Rupert. Can you provide that for him?
