Loving polydactyl Siamese male looking to join a cat family! I am seeking rehoming for Frank because he lost his housemate late last year and has been really depressed since. Unfortunately, I am unable to get more cats due to my renting situation so I have had to make the difficult decision to rehome my little guy for his own mental well-being. He can be a bit of an anxious scaredy-cat and so he really leans on other cats a lot for his confidence. He would prefer a house with 2 or more cats to play and cuddle with and has met a few dogs that he doesn't mind once he gets used to them.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION BEFORE YOU CONSIDER ADOPTING:
Frank has inflammatory bowel disease(IBD) and so he does have to take medication(steroid pill that is fairly cheap) every other day. He is very good about taking his medicine as long as it comes along with a churu lickable treat. He also must be restricted to the z/d diet from Hill's this food contains proteins that are already broken down and aids in his digestion/prevents him from having flare-ups. Flare-ups for him usually include vomiting and constipation that leads to panicked bowel movements that often don't make it into the catbox. He has not had either of these problems since starting the steroids and z/d food so it is very important he follows that regimen. The diet is the more expensive aspect of his care needs, I currently pay $40 for a 4lb bag of the z/d food and it lasts him about a month. You may also notice in some of the photos that he has an inflamed right eye; he has had this his whole life it comes and goes and sometimes is goopier than others. I get antibiotic eyedrops from his vet and use them periodically when it gets especially inflamed and goopy and otherwise just keep it clean, I will admit he's not a huge fan of this process. This condition is not contagious to other cats. He also is missing a vertebra at the base of his tail that causes it to stand straight up a majority of the time and shake like a rattlesnake when he gets excited. This has never been problematic and is just a quirk of his. Please understand that you will need to take Frank to the vet periodically to check in on how the meds are going and get new prescriptions for the eyedrops and steroids.
But it's not all bad! Frank is an avid lover of crinkle balls, cat nip, toys with feathers, scratching posts, naps, and bird watching. He also has the cutest little chirp for a meow that will steal your heart. If you take him on and decide that he doesn't fit in with your crew or his medication and food needs prove to be too nitpicky I will take him back into my home ANYTIME. I love this cat dearly and would love if you were open to me being able to visit once he gets settled. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
