Finbar & Malachy

Domestic Short Hair, Mix

An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Male

Finbar (white with black) and Malachy (blue seal) were loved and very well cared for by my friend. This past Sunday their owner succumbed to a battle with cancer she fought over the last year. She had these two boys since they were quite young.

Finbar is seven and to the best of my knowledge a very healthy boy. I believe he needs annual shots. I am trying to confirm this with his vet. I think he is the boss of the two. It takes him a couple visits to warm up to people but then he is quite likeable. He loved to cuddle with his owner.

Malachy is eight and as a kitten had to undergo surgery for a perineal urethrostomy. He has had intermittent problems with urinary tract infection however it seems has always responded well to antibiotics. He just finished a course of drugs this past Saturday. He is currently just taking a nutritional supplement to acidify the urine. I am also trying to confirm his annual shot status. He also takes a few visits to warm up but less time if he gets his back scratched. He will keep coming back for that!

They live with a dog and everyone gets along great. I am wiling to get their shots up to date.
