Theodore is a very loving kitty. He follows his foster mom around and loves attention. He gets along well with his buddy Simon (also for adoption) but can be picky about other kitty friends. He would probably do fine with a calm female cat. He is nervous about dogs but could live with them if they left him alone.
This sweet boy came to us when the shelter he was at reached out for help. He had upper respiratory infections and wasn't responding to the meds. We changed antibiotics and had success clearing that up. Theodore also had ear mites (note the "helicopter" ears) and a bite wound on his throat. We treated both and they have cleared up. Unfortunately, Theodore was still not looking very good. We tested him and he is positive for FIV. He has stomatitis and his mouth was not in good condition. We met with our vet to discuss treatment options and prognosis. We will do our best for him. Theodore's comfort and quality of life are our first priorities
Poor Theodore had a rough week. He went to the vet for neutering and had to have a full mouth extraction on his teeth to combat his stomatitis. This is a common problem that comes with FIV. We are hopeful that this will help him be more comfortable. The vet left his canine teeth because they were solid and less likely to cause problems, but we may have to have them removed eventually.
Theo already seems happier. He is talkative and very sweet. He's still a little worried about having his face around his mouth touched, but as the inflammation and pain subside he'll love the attention.
As soon as he feels better we will get him settled in an area where he can run around and look out the window to watch the birds.
Theodore is truly a loving cat that really needs a chance at a great home. We hope there is someone out there that will give him the forever home he deserves.
Theodore is a real sweetheart. Sadly having FIV will probably make it hard to find him a home.
But there are angels out there
Theodore is 7 years old. He is neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.
