Christopher is SO friendly. He wants nothing more than to be around his humans. He splits his time interacting with them, loving on them, or just supervising their work. He’s a full-figured, young adult male (est. four years), with a soft, black coat.
Christopher was surrendered to Animal Control at the end of October 2017 due to his family moving. We rescued him in the beginning of December and brought him to a warm, loving foster home. He was adopted a couple months later. However, due to no fault of his own, he was returned to us in July 2020.
When we first rescued Christopher in 2017, we noticed him over grooming his belly. Upon an exam at the vet, the doctor discovered a fractured canine that she assumed was causing him a lot of pain. This pain was likely causing him to act out by over-grooming. We set him up for a dental cleaning and extraction immediately. When he returned to PPAH last month, it was obvious that he was still over grooming. An exam and lab work showed that this behavior is not due to a medical issue. We don’t know why Christopher over grooms. Perhaps it’s because he’s bored, or maybe he hasn’t found a home in which is is completely comfortable. Maybe yours is the home that he can settle into and be happy for life.
Christopher had one bout of urinary crystals after returning to our care. It is the only time he has had this issue in his life. He was treated with medication and a special diet and improved rapidly, as anticipated. In an abundance of caution, he is still eating urinary prescription food. Whether or not he needs to stay on a prescription food would be up to his new adopter and his new vet.
Christopher’s ideal home would have no other pets and would have people that can dote on him and with whom he can interact and supervise for at least part of the day. Christopher is not a needy or noisy cat. He’s just a chubby boy looking for his forever home.
He is already neutered, FIV/FeLV tested negative, Avid micro-chipped, de-wormed and has all necessary shots. He is ready to go to a loving home. Adoption fee is $125
