Bodie (Bobo) C1803

16 years old · Adoptable · HOSPICE SPONSORS NEEDED

UPDATE JUNE 2022: Lucky boy Bodie is moving into a permanent Hospice Foster home, so he will get to spend the rest of his life in a home setting, getting snuggles from his very own person, instead of being the office cat (which can get pretty lonely after business hours).

Forget Me Not will provide Bobo's medication, vet care, and food for the rest of his life, and his new Hospice Foster dad will provide the lap and the snuggles and the conversation.

Bodie, aka Bobo, came to Forget Me Not after his owner passed away. He is a litter trained 15-year-old domestic medium hair gray tabby (estimated birth date 2/3/2007). He arrived with his lovely fur terribly matted, down to the skin in places, so has had a less-than-flattering shave... but don't worry, all that fur will grow back and with brief daily (or even weekly) brushing, he should be his handsome self again.

Bobo came in as a front-paw declawed kitty, but thankfully he doesn't seem to have any lasting pain or behavioral problems from his amputations. He should remain indoor-only for life.

Bobo is a very sweet, affectionate boy who loves having company around him. He is quite the talker so you can’t walk past this handsome face without stopping to scratch his ears and say hi.

As an older cat he does have a harder time jumping up and down, so he prefers having his cozy places to curl up in easily accessible areas. His cat tower is just right as he can move from each level easily and look out the window as well. He very much enjoys ear rubs and will roll over so you can reach his belly too.

Bobo is currently eating canned food a few times a day to help him gain and maintain a healthy weight for a cat his age. He reportedly has a fish allergy, so check ingredients carefully to avoid fish and fish products (you'd be surprised how many non-fish flavors have fish oil). Canned food is much better than dry for senior kitties.

Bobo has had a geriatric panel, and is in good shape for an old man, with the single exception of hyperthyroidism. His condition is managed with a twice-daily transdermal medication (dabbed inside his ear - NO PILLS).

In Bobo’s previous home he was the only pet, so he's probably a better fit in household he can get all the one on time he wants and deserves!

HOSPICE SPONSORS are needed for Bobo, so we can continue providing his transdermal hyperthyroidism medication, food, vet care, and supplies for the rest of his life.
