Tabby / Domestic Short Hair / Mixed (short coat) : : Male : : Adult : : Medium
Buddy is a very friendly and very handsome cat. He's a "buddy" cat. He greets you when you come in the door and hangs out wherever you are. He's a lap cat too! But he's not needy. Just a friendly, cool breeze of a cat. Buddy can be a bit of a bully, so best if he's an only cat. Buddy was taken out of a trailer park where he was neglected. He had an infection in his knee that wasn't treated and destroyed the cartilage. Buddy is a very easy special needs kitty because of his knee. He gets metcam once every three days in his mouth. It's a very small amount and he's great about taking it. It can also be put in wet food or tuna. Generic metacam is inexpensive. Buddy comes with a big bottle of metcam. He does need his kidneys checked once a year since he's on metacam. $52 per 100ml bottle. He gets than 0.1ml every three days. That's 1000 doses per bottle! Buddy's adoption fee is $65. It includes up to date shots, microchip, 100ml bottle of metacam, neuter and feline leukemia test. He's already neutered and he's negative for feline luekemia.

Special Needs: Buddy came to us with a very bad infection in his knee that was never treated. It ate away all the cartilage in his knee. He gets metacam every 3 days for pain management. He gets his kidneys checked once a year because he's on the metacam. The other option is to freeze the leg with metal rods which could cause bigger problems down the road with arthritis. Or to amputate the leg. Right now he's doing quite well in the metacam so there's no reason to amputate the leg. January 2019
