.......it would appear I might have started a Retirement Ranch. I am a sucker for old geezer animals..... First there is Toby, the 13 year old Shepherd mix, adopted 13 years ago. Then there is Bella, the 13 year old Toy Poodle (age is a guess, but she is missing half her teeth and has a grade IV heart murmur), adopted 6 years ago. There there is Norman, the 10 year old Cat, adopted 10 years ago. And now, the point of this post, joining them fresh from the local shelter....... Elvis T. Toes, the 800 year old Cat. Okay, maybe not 800. I would guess 12-15 years old. He just came home last night! Here he was at the shelter the first day I saw him, Monday. The next day when I got to visit him, Tuesday. The day I brought all the paperwork in and officially adopted him, Wednesday. And his first night home, Thursday. He is such a happy boy! He can't eat dry food very well....which is all he was given at the shelter.....so i have been giving him canned food. He is just demolishing that food! Super great appetite. He is a polydactyl.....he has 22+ toes. He was abandoned at the shelter 3/21 and an anonymous donor sponsored him so that his adoption fee was waived. He had been neutered sometime earlier in life anyways, but now also is up to date on shots, worming, felv/fiv tested and microchipped. And very very happy.
