Additional Details

Rambo is a very sweet guy who loves head scratches and quiet times. He loves cozy hideaways he can cuddle into when he needs some alone time. Just give him some time to settle in, and he'll be your best friend. He has no teeth. He can eat dry food but may need softened food as well.

This cat has been diagnosed with feline idiopathic cystitis, which is inflammation of the bladder with no recognizable underlying cause. FIC is fairly common in highly stressed cats. More information is on this cat's kennel at the ARL, but we'd also encourage you to consult your regular veterinarian if you have questions.

This cat is part of our Silver Paw program, a foster and adoption program specifically for senior pets who have lived with an elderly person who has either passed away or been moved to a residential facility where they're unable to keep their pet. The goal is to give these pets a comfortable home until they're adopted or through the end of their life. You can learn more about this program at ARL-Iowa.org/SilverPaw. If you're interested in fostering or adopting a cat in this program, please email Mary at mmccarroll@arl-iowa.org.
