Meet Junior! He is a very loving guy. He was born on March 3, 2009. When Foster Dad comes home from work or leaves in the morning, Junior stands on his hind legs and reaches up his foster dad's legs so he can pet him. He is very dog-like in my opinion.
Junior is very enthusiastic about life and will play for a long time with balls he can roll on the floor and pipe cleaners twisted into rings and mice. He loves to follow me around the house and when he finally tires, he will nap with me on the bed and crawl under the covers. He is very inquisitive and energetic.
We love him and he has been a fun and affectionate member of our family. He has a great attittude towards us, our granddaughters age 9 and 7 and makes friends quickly with human visitors.
Junior has recovered from Entropion surgery of both eyes, performed at the The Animal Opthamology Center. Entropion calls for a surgical procedure to correct the eyelashes that have turned into the skin. Junior came back to us to recover and that same day was running around 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 energy and "overenthusiastic" attitude did not make him popular and it took a bit of time (and still does) for him to learn to be polite toward others. Junior's idea of fun is to chase and pounce on the other cats and he thinks this is funny. They do no.The look on his face is like "why are you hissing at me? I just want to PLAY! Junior 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.
He might be almost 5 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 (available online) for Feline Herpes. It is 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 the virus. It also comes in a powder that can be mixed into canned food. It is easy to get and does not need a script.
Junior has no health issues with his vision at this time and none anticipated. He has Perfect litter box habits. He someitmes does his business standing up with his feet (three of them:) on the edge of the litter box.
