Linus is loved

by

Linus and his brother were rescued from a scary life outdoors and brought to us catolescents in 2020. Fast forward to 2022 when our friends at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region called us because he showed up there,  surrendered for peeing on the dog’s bed.

It didn’t take long before we realized he was having trouble urinating. Going in and out the box and  crying are good indicators of painful urination.

The wonderful vets at Fox Run Veterinary Hospital tested him and found he had struvite stones in his bladder. With the help of our Facebook family, we raised the funds for his cystotomy, a surgery to remove them.

They told us the stones were the biggest they had ever seen. One was as big as a thumbnail! It was no wonder Linus was going outside the litterbox. He had been in horrible pain and had been asking for help the only way he knew how.

While he healed, Linus showed us he was the most loving and wonderful companion. It didn’t take long before Jason came along to meet him. It was love at first sight!

Jason says, “He has such a personality! He has his favorite spots to nap, including his cat tower that has a full view of the backyard and all the critters in it.

And I never met a cat that gets as excited about food as he does. I’m looking forward to many happy years together with him.”
