Hi, my name is Bergie. I was found in a construction site wall in Ottawa. I was very scared at first and did not know who I could trust. My foster family spent a lot of time showing me love and affection and making me feel comfortable. I am still learning, especially with new people, but it does not take me long to know who my friends are. Foster Notes: When Bergie came into foster care he was in rough shape. He had ulcerated foot pads and many wounds on him. It was noticed that he was limping on his front right leg. When the limp did not improve, x-rays were done and showed that he had sustained a broken elbow when he was living outside. The break was already mostly healed, but has caused some fusion of his elbow joint. He may always limp, but it does not slow him down. Bergie will need some time to adjust to his new people. A quiet room, and gentle, low key interactions will help. He loves wand toys. Although he cannot play rough just yet as his elbow is healing, he likes to get a few good swats and pounces in at the wand. Catnip is his weakness. Even though he is shy, Bergie really likes to be around people. He likes to stand on his hindlegs and rub his head into your hands for loving. He was very timid to start, but now can be a little over exuberant sometimes. He gets a bit overstimulated with play or attention, so we recommend only older children age 13+ who can read and attend to his signs. He is a good boy though! This young fellow needs his own people who will show him love and affection, and realize he will need time and effort to trust and bond with them. He's so worth it though!

 

ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee is $225.00 (which includes a health check, first vaccination in a series and any that become due while in care, first anti-parasite treatments needed in care, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). There is a 10% discount when you adopt 2 cats/kittens. The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters, anti-parasite treatments that are needed after adoption. Kittens usually need 3 vaccines, one month apart starting at age 7 weeks. Juveniles and Adult cats usually require 2 vaccines one month apart in the first year, then annual vaccines. Deworming is recommended at the time of each vaccine appointment. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that your Veterinary clinic may be experiencing backlogs in scheduling appointments, so do not delay calling your clinic to book your new cat's needed booster appointment(s). Please note that cats are not tested for FIV/FeLV nor can FIP be predicted. We will share any medical information gathered during our health checks and observations revealed during their time in care. But it is important to know that some illnesses can have an incubation period of 10 days, which means that a cat can leave in good health but get sick a few days post adoption. In addition, the stress of a new environment can affect a cats’ immune system.
