Meet Junior! Junior is a very very loving guy. When Foster Dad comes home from work or leaves in the morning Junior stands on his hind legs and reaches up his legs so he and pet him. He is very dog like in my opinion. Junior is very enthusiastic about life and will play for long time periods with balls he can roll on the hardwood floors and pipe cleaners twisted into rings and mouseys. He loves to follow me around the house and when he finally wears out he will nap with me on the bed and crawl under the covers. He is very inquisitive and energetic. Not a 24 hour couch potato:)
His birthdate is listed as 3-3-09. We love him and he has been a fun and affectionate member of our family. Since we got him, he has had an outstanding temperament to us, to our granddaughters age 9 and 7 and makes friends in short order with human visitors coming into the house.
Junior has recovered from Entropion surgery of both eyes at the The Animal Opthomology Center. Entropion calls for a surgical procedure to correct this turning in of the eyelashes.
Junior came back to us to recover and that day was running around like a crazy man playing with his toys. He had good vision for the first time in a very long time.
After his return visit for a check up and removal of stitches on Jan 7 2013 he was gradually re-introduced to the rest of the cats in my household. His boundless energy and "overenthusiastic" attitude toward other cats did not make him very popular and it took a bit of time (and still is) to develop more polite manners toward others. Junior's idea of fun is to chase and pounce on the other cats and he thinks this is funny. They do not think it is funny. The look on his face is like "why are you hissing at me? I just want to PLAY PLAY PLAY and rumble and wrestle and play with toys and bite you for FUN!" It took another of the rescue cats (a 25lb-er) to take control of the situation, stand his ground, then smack him upside the head, then sit on him when he gets too rambunctious. Most of all Latte (the big guy) knew--don't run or he will chase you. Just sit there and stare at him and he will behave. He is not hostile to them--he just is VERY energetic. I have never seen a cat so intent on seeking out toys and stuff to play "hockey" with including earrings or anything else that slides or rolls over the floor.
He might be almost 4 but he acts like a kitten and in true Siamese fashion sticks his tongue out slightly as he walks around looking quite silly.
Junior is on Enisyl F Lysine Treats made by Vetoquinol 6 in the morn and 6 in the evening (I happened to find them on line) for Feline Herpes. This translates into 500mg per day and needs to continue for life.
This Lysine acts on the Herpes virus to inhibit its ability to reproduce. He likes them so much that I have to be careful not to rattle the bag accidently or he will come running for more.:) In my opinion and that of many vets, Lysine is the best thing for fighting virus. I have a cat on it for life and he also loves those treats. It also comes in a powder that can be mixed into canned food. . Easy to obtain and not a script. No health issues with his vision at this time and none anticipated. Perfect litter box habits. In fact he seems to enjoy doing his business standing up with his feet (three of them:) on the edge of the litter box. Guess it makes for personal hydeine cleanup easier (grin) Eats well.
