Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is helping facilitate the adoption of this cat though our owner placement program.  We take no responsibility for the health and medical records of this cat.  It is the responsibility of the owner and adopter to discuss this.

Lion is NOT in a Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue foster home, but residing with his current owner in Alameda. Adoption fee applies. Find out more about Owner Placement Cats.

Lion is a delightful fluffy bundle of fun! He has plush Ginger and Cream colored fur and lovely yellow green eyes. He is royally handsome, impish and playful. He spent the first ten years of his life living on the street where he fought hard to survive. When his feeder trapped him for neutering it was clear that Lion adored people and was a socialized cat who unfortunately found himself outdoors.

Lion’s current owner says: “He spent several months regaining his health. He was very thin, had badly infected gums, and in overall poor condition. In October 2019 he had a dental procedure to remove half his teeth. He is in good health now having been treated for IBD last June. An endoscopy confirmed there are no signs of cancer. At his last checkup, there were no signs of inflammation in his intestines and he was doing great. He has responded well to prednisone, cisapride and novel protein rabbit diet. His final checkup is scheduled for September 1st. He expected to be cleared for adoption. Lion has a grade 3/6 heart murmur. His vet feels a cardiology consult is not essential due to no outward signs such as coughing, fainting or shortness of breath. I will arrange for one if requested.

Lion loves to follow me around the house when he is out of his room. Where I am, he is not far away. He enjoys being picked up and held, and lets you know when he’s ready to get down. He loves playing with interactive string toys, stalking catnip mice and being on the top shelf of the cat tree surveying what’s going on outside. He often talks with a soft sweet scratchy meow. Over the past several months, Lion has enjoyed napping either beside his person, or at the foot of the bed, being the perfect bedmate.

Lion is FIV+ so he cannot be with other cats. Lion had a tendency to overstimulate when wanting more attention, but it is lessening all the time. He is best suited in a home without children, or with other cats or dogs as he lacks a good sense of other animal’s personal space. Think of the person who always stands too close when they’re talking to you. That’s sweet Lion.”

He prefers being indoors only, and just wants to be loved and give love back. If you are familiar with feline overstimulation and willing to pay attention to his chronic condition, would love to play with him, give him the run of the house and attention when he seeks you out, you would make him the happiest cat in the world! Vet care financial assistance may be possible by the owner.

Lion is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, microchipped, and is litterbox perfect.
