Senior sweetie Munchies (A1073080) was dumped in the ACC by his owner due to moving. He was not in the shelter long before he caught the kitty sniffles and ended up on the nightly euth list on May 25th. Zani’s Furry Friends pulled Munchies to safety and he is now living in a home again! Munchie’s adopter sent in the following update with the above photos:
Update on Mr. Munchies: We brought him home yesterday & he’s doing well 🙂 He is a ham! Sweet & chatty w/ a pinch of spice. You’d never know that he’s already 16 yrs old, only his teeth give away his age. They are in pretty bad shape & he urgently needs a dental, most likely w/ extractions. He appears quite healthy overall, some sensitivity around his hip area, probably senior arthritis. He’ll see the vet for a full senior work-up after the holiday. He’s eating both wet & dry food, and he enjoys playing w/ his new catnip toys & chasing you balls. He doesn’t seem to be too thrilled about other cats so for know we are keeping him separated in our larger, master bathroom where he has a window & us as frequent visitors. This will give him time to acclimate, and then we’ll try slow intros to the rest of the furry gang .
Thank you all for rooting for him, and a big Thank You to Zani’s for saving his life! Please honor your pledges to help Zani’s w/ the vet costs, and to keep them going so they can continue to save animals every day!
A big thanks to Zani’s for getting this guy to safety.
