Update, 9/22/10: Peter has been adopted!
Meet Peter, a domestic black and white short hair cat living with food allergies:
Date of birth: 5/03
7/15/09: Peter is a handsome B&W cat with big round gold eyes and a shorthair coat. He’s a real sweet guy and he gets along well with other cats. He is 6 years old.
Peter has been at our shelter for a very long time. When we first met him, he’d been left at our doorstep in a box. His face was all scratched up and swollen and his ears looked raw. We determined that he had a food allergy and put him on a diet of Science Diet ZD formula. That cleared him up and he’s been fine ever since. He’ll need to stay on allergy food, and it can be purchased from your veterinarian or from our clinic. He can live with other cats as long as they are fed separately or the other cats eat ZD, too.
Peter has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia. We’d love to find this sweet guy a good home soon.
Peter’s currently staying with the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City – but methinks he’d be much happier at home with you!
