The second cat in my "Meet a Tabby's Place Cat" series is none other than BOOTS! This boy calls the warm and inviting lobby of the cat sanctuary his home, and instantly stole my heart the moment I walked in because he looks practically identical to Priscilla, my baby, and the main inspiration behind this blog!
Angela told me that Boots can be a bit of a "bruiser" to the other cats, but he loves all beings of the human variety, which is why he was moved to the lobby, where he can bask in human affection all day long. Another reason for his central location, is because this young boy (he's only four), has a serious of medical condition that requires close monitoring.
You see, Boots has heart disease, and receives treatment in the form of a small dose of aspirin (to prevent a blood clot), a diuretic to remove excess fluid from his lungs and to make his heart's job easier, and medication to lower his blood pressure and to reduce his heart's workload. He also requires regular blood tests and quarterly ultrasounds to monitor his health.
Fortunately for Boots, he found himself at Tabby's Place, where the loving staff and volunteers will provide this tuxie gentlemen with a safe, comfortable, and loving environment for as long as he needs.
