Smaug - Smaug, the mightiest little dragon ever, has fought hard-won battles against fierce knights such as Sir Hypothyroidism and Sir Born-without-a-gallbladder... itis. This little guy has pulled through some rather worrisome situations. We're happy to say that he is now a thriving young man who is full of energy and spunk. Sweet Smaug is also incredibly and completely affectionate and loves getting petted, scratched, cuddled, and more! Every time he sees his people, he immediately races to them to be picked up and snuggled. He is absolutely wonderful whether he's playing with toys or snuggling up in your arms and purring loudly. He loves interacting with people and would probably do well in a home that's ready to give him a lot of love and attention. Smaug would be best suited to a work from home or homeschool family that would have plenty of time to give him all the love and affection he deserves. We have all grown extremely fond of this amazing guy and know that he would be a wonderful new addition to anyone looking for a great cat!!
Smaug’s Medical Information: First, let’s talk about Sir Hypothyroidism! Hypothyroidism is fairly rare in kitties and can be difficult to diagnose. Thankfully, we have done the hard work for you! As Smaug continues to grow, he needs to have regular weight checks to have his Levothyroxine dose adjusted. After he reaches his mature weight, he will need annual to bi-annual bloodwork to adjust his medication as needed. In some cases, a modified diet with reduced fat may also be recommended, but is currently not the case with Smaug! Now onto the more elusive Sir Born-without-a-gallbladder… itis! There is a saying that congenital defects often bring friends. We aren’t sure who was the first to the party, but we assume that both of Smaug’s strange medical conditions are related. The great news, however, is Sir Born-without-a-gallbladder… itis is just weird! Cats can live perfectly healthy, normal lives without gallbladders, just like humans! It will just be an odd flex when you meet new people: “Well, you know what? My cat didn’t need his gallbladder removed. He just never had one to begin with!”
Upon adoption, Smaug will be neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He tested negative for FIV/FeLV.
