Monster - Adoption Pending

monster.JPG

Monster is a very handsome guy who is develops more personality each day. He is aptly named and manages to get into everything. He loves to explore new places, jump onto high things and climb up anything that looks interesting. He is quite high energy and is a fearsome hunter (he's indoors only but can hunt a feather toy like no other.) Monster loves to play with the other kittens but can be a little bit bossy with them sometimes. He likes to hoard the toys rather than sharing them. Monster has never met a dog before but he will likely do well with one if introduced properly.

Monster 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 Monster 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 Monster'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.
