Cowboy C1817

9 years old · Adoptable · $25

Cowboy is a handsome "young" senior of 9, who arrived at Forget Me Not when his person became unable to care for him at home.

He came in with a growth on his lip (as shown in his last few photos), which has since been removed thanks to the Mozart and Casper Fund for Senior Cats.

We also discovered he has hyperthyroidism, for which he is currently being treated with transdermal daily medication. It's possible he may be a good candidate for Radioactive Iodine Treatment, but he needs to have a foster home or foster-to-adopt home before we can offer that to him, as it requires a private room for 2 weeks post-treatment with special handling of used litter (which then will need to be stored in a covered bucket for a year before discarding, to allow the radioactivity to break down). If Cowboy is THE ONE for you and you'd like to foster during his treatment, let us know and we'll make arrangements (the Feline Hyperthyroid Treatment Center is in Tacoma).

If his person prefers to do the daily transdermal medication, which is a gel that is placed on the inner skin of the ear once daily, that is also an option and would not require the foster-to-adopt period.

Cowboy is reported to be dog-tolerant, a lovely quality! He seems to prefer the company of people to that of cats, and is an easy-keeper who really just wants a loving retirement home with some sun spots, cozy sleeping nooks, a lap or two to snuggle on, and the intention to be his person for the rest of his life.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Cowboy is a suggested minimum of $25 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
