Josh, a beautiful Seal Point Siamese cat, is waiting for a new owner at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
He is a 12-year-old neutered cat with front declawed paws and the sweetest personality ever. He was adopted two years ago and was very happy with his family until he developed a urinary tract infection and started having accidents in the house.
His owners initially took him to the vet, but after a week of treatment he was still having problems and they did not take him back for further treatment. He spent a month and a half in their bathroom; then they decided to return him to the shelter.
Shelter staff took him to a shelter vet immediately and found he was suffering from an infection. After several weeks of treatment, he is now happy, healthy and on a canned-food only diet.
Josh is completely healthy, a fabulous weight and still very active for his age. Like most Siamese, he will need dental cleanings in the future, but is otherwise in the best of shape. Even though he is 12, he acts half his age and is a "super love bug."
All he wants to do is snuggle and cuddle with people, and he purrs like crazy.
If you’re interested in adopting or meeting Josh, his shelter number is A052228; dogs, cats and other pets are available for adoption at the Animal Shelter from:
Tuesday - Friday: 12 noon – 7 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
4500 West Ox Road, Fairfax, Virginia 22030
