Won't you think about adopting me?
Who's a good boy? Rascal is a good boy! In fact, we've tried to explain to him that he's not a dog, yet he follows around his foster like any good pup.
This sweet, friendly 15-year-old boy was originally adopted from the shelter in 2008. Like many senior pets, Rascal was surrendered to the shelter when his owner passed away.
Luckily, Rascal has a second chance for a forever home where he can play, explore, and work on trimming down his chonky physique. We can't wait to watch him settle back into life as a beloved puppy cat.
You may have noticed that he's classified as a Bombay cat. That means he is the ultimate house panther who is outgoing and sociable. Bombay cats are friendly and curious and want to be with you, so they can get depressed if left alone for too long (just like a dog).
Let's talk about the diabetes. Rascal has been diagnosed with diabetes and is receiving insulin shots twice a day. He's also on a prescription diet to provide him the correct nutrition and slim him down a bit. Because of his condition, we're planning to continue to sponsor his diabetes maintenance which includes related vet visits and insulin supplies.
Never had a cat with diabetes? You simply have to give him the injection twice a day (same time morning and night) and we can show you how. He's used to receiving insulin injections, so it's fairly easy to do.
Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. Indoor homes only.
