Cat of the Day: Sylvester


Each day throughout the holiday season The Cat’s Meow will showcase an adoptable cat seeking a home in time for the holidays.

Today’s featured cat is Sylvester, a gorgeous senior Tuxie in Ringoes, NJ. Sylvester is a special needs cat. He has diabetes and requires injections. It’s not that difficult to do, but it’s made it hard to adopt him out. Can you give this mellow, elder gent a second chance at life by giving him a Home 4 the Holidays?

Here’s Sylvester’s story:

Sylvester is our idea of a VERY big boy. In fact, he’s one of our biggest cats, tipping the scales at 19+ pounds! This isn’t all fat, either, but mostly the result of a large frame. Sylvester is a handsome guy, too, with white “mittens” in all four feet and a white muzzle and chest. The remainder of his coat is black. He’s about thirteen years old.

Generally a good-natured, laid-back guy, Sylvester is also a diabetic, so he’s one of our Special Needs Crew. He’s on insulin twice daily for this, and he also takes some inexpensive supplements. He doesn’t seem bothered at all by other cats; even rowdy little Hootz with whom he shares a room doesn’t faze him. We understand that not everyone can adopt a Special Needs feline, but we know there’s someone out there with a heart as big as Sylvester who will fall in love with him and give him a home where he can be cherished. Is it you?
