Casper - ADOPTED!

casper 2.JPG

Casper is a great little guy who is ready to find his forever home. This guy is a very solid cat and while he is playful because he's a kitten, he's not terribly fast or agile because he is so big boned. He was the runt of his litter but he's more than making up for it now. He is a stocky boy! Casper plays well with other cats and enjoys running around with his siblings but he's also very content to play with toys on his own. He's quite independent and can entertain himself pretty well. Casper is really sweet and has a fantastic purr. He's very social and easy to handle, but he's not a huge fan of being carried around or held for long periods of time. He just feels as though he has better things to be doing than sitting still. He has never met a dog before but he will likely do well with one if introduced properly.

Casper and his siblings came into our care at about 6-8 weeks of age and they were terribly ill. They had the worst upper respiratory and eye infections that we'd ever seen. They are in good health now, but they will always show some symptoms of their past. Feline upper respiratory complex is caused by Feline Herpes Virus, and just like someone who had chicken pox as a child is prone to Shingles if they become stressed or ill as an adult. cats with FHV are prone to getting kitty colds in the future. Therefore, it will be important for Casper to be an indoor-only cat, and he may have symptoms such as runny eyes or sneezing at times in the future. It will be imperative that any existing cats in Casper's new home be up to date on their vaccines. If you are not familiar with FHV, please ask your vet about it to determine if this kitten will be a good fit for your home.
