Tabby - Brown, Mix
An adotable cat in Wayland, MA
Owen is a very handsome juvenile (~8 months) spotted tiger with special needs-- he is blind in one eye, from a complete retinal detachment, and also has a slight neurological issue. His original care giver did not notice that he had a problem-- but when he came to GACR, we noticed he had a gait that was slightly "off", and some seemingly modest visual issues. After a complete exam by the vet, and lots of blood tests, we were off to the ophthalmologist for a more complete workup. He is clear of all diseases that may have caused these issues, and the consensus among the vets is that he was impaired due to physical trauma-- someone likely hit him. He was rescued off the streets of a large city- where teenage kids were found throwing bottles at him. His "owners" were not concerned about his safety, and were seen by a neighbor throwing the cat outside.
So let me tell you about Owen in his foster home with us. He is completely adoptable, trusting, playful and a huge lover. He comes to his foster mom daily to be snuggled, loves to sit on/near her on the couch, and is constantly under foot looking for love. He is one of those "head-butt" specialists- rubbing his whole body on people to get more love. He is completely adapted to his slight neurological issues- has no problem running about and playing, getting up and down the stairs, and jumping on the couch. He is a bit wobbly, but not grossly so, and has some issues with his body- he'll have his front leg folded over in what would seem like an uncomfortable way, but he doesn't move it. It suggests some neurological dysfunction, and lack of body-in-space sensations. He likes all the other kitties he is living with, and LOVES the string toys, and jingle ball toys the best.
Come meet this special boy, and tell us why YOU would be the perfect new person for him to belong to. He is a special boy.
