This is my “new” little buddy, Doby. Isn’t he handsome? 🙂
Doby was one of two shelter cats that came to live with us back in August. The first six weeks or so were a bit of a challenge with him. He was TERRIFIED that he was even here in the first place. It didn’t help that he was on an antibiotic and I had to drag him out from under everything twice a day to medicate him. Then he got an ear infection and had to have ear drops for the next two weeks. NOT a good start to life here. 🙁
Doby was on an antibiotic because he’d just had half of his teeth removed. He also walks with a limp due to a leg injury when he was a kitten. There’s no sign of a break, so it was a tendon or ligament injury. None of this seems to bother him and he is quite the “normal” cat.
It took a while for Doby to feel comfortable here, but now you’d never know how much of a struggle those first weeks were. Doby is always under foot squeaking for his food. Oh my goodness, is he ever a S L O W eater!! We have to carefully monitor things just to make sure he gets food.
The best thing about Doby? He sure does love to cuddle!! He is the cuddliest cat that I have ever met, an absolute sweetheart. 🙂
