Foster Notes: Elm, affectionately known as Elmo, is an incredibly sweet and gentle senior with a heart of gold that shines through his bright fur. One look into Elm’s uniquely coloured eyes and you will see that he is a truly special boy! Elm is extremely affectionate and loves to spend as much time as possible cuddling and napping on your chest. As long as you’re lying down, Elm will be right there with you! Elm doesn’t have a single mean bone in his body and has never shown an ounce of aggression, and he relishes in being the centre of attention! Elm is a HUGE fan of belly rubs and any kind of treats. He loves mealtimes and does happy spins when he sees his food is on the way! Despite being an older cat, Elm can be very playful and enjoys wand toys (and a good snuggle after exercise). While Elm does fantastic on his own and can keep himself entertained, he will use his voice to let you know when he wants some attention! Elm can be shy when meeting new people and will most likely try to hide at first, and therefore would do best to stay in a small room with no hiding spots during a short adjustment period while he becomes familiar with his new family and home.


Special Needs/Diet: Since coming into foster care, Elm has had a history of constipation that has caused him to occasionally & accidently poop outside of his litterbox. Through ongoing medication and hydration, Elm has gone long periods without any incident, although his BM’s need to be regularly monitored. Elm is currently doing very well on a combined medication & prescription food diet; he is on a daily dose of lactulose and Restoralax as well as eating a high fibre diet: Hill's Prescription Biome Gastrointestinal Canned food. We would recommend he continue on this regime for his health and comfort. Elm has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency virus). He was negative for FeLV. Cats positive for FIV have weaker immune systems, but can live fulfilling and happy lives like any other cats—and can live for many years, often without harmful symptoms. Please read more here: Elm had some broken teeth extracted. Elm's eyes are different colours due to a condition called melanosis -which causes changes in the iris colour and freckling. It needs to be monitored for 3-D like appearance, but is normally benign.


ADOPTION FEE: The Senior /Special Needs adoption fee is $165.00 (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.
