Foster Notes: Swan is a very sweet girl who would enjoy a quiet life. She is not people shy at all and will stay out in the open when strangers are around. She happily lays on your lap and sometimes joins you in bed. She occasionally follows you around. She loves sniffing the fresh spring air and will hang out around the back door. Swan is easy to handle and manipulate when needed (insulin injection, glucose check, nail trim, hair trim, etc). She can be picked up and held, although she doesn't love it for very long. She has not shown any interest in playing with toys.

 

Health notes: Swan has diabetes and is doing very well on her 2 daily injections of Insulin. She also requires canned diabetic food and due to only having 5 teeth left, pate food is preferred over chunks in gravy. OSCatR will provide her adopter with a starter diabetes kit for her including : the glucometer, lancets, test strips and insulin we have in hand for her. Swan has tested positive for FIV. Swan always has her mouth open a tiny bit to breathe. Our Veterinary partner said that her jaw is shaped in a way that she won't usually close it fully. It could be biological or from past trauma. Her breathing is perfectly normal.

 

ADOPTION FEE: The 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, deworming, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters that become due after adoption. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that due to Covid 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
