Meet “Ollie” our pet of the month for August 2014

Our relationship with “Ollie” started in April of 2012 when he ended up at Lake County Animal Services, how or why we do not know. From the shelter he was transferred to the Cat Protection Society where he lived for almost 2 years. Like many of the adult cats living in shelters, life for “Ollie” proved to be a challenge and an adjustment. He got plenty of food and medical care, it is just hard for them to live among a large number of cats. “Ollie” struggled to adapt, not thriving and loosing a lot of weight, until January 2014 when a volunteer for the Shelter (Heather Ferguson) made a connection with “Ollie” and felt he needed to get out of the shelter and into a home to survive. The Cat Protection Society was grateful for him to get a chance for a so called “normal life.”

On January 21, 2014 “Ollie” began his recovery and new life. He was brought to us weighing 6.8 lbs. suffering from many of the typical shelter diseases, such as upper respiratory disease, ringworm, etc. For the next four months Heather and “Ollie” made many trips to the clinic for bloodwork and treatment. Due to the determination and dedication Heather put in to helping this cat following the treatment regimen recommended by Dr. Laura Fisher and the support the shelter provided for the treatment, “Ollie” now weighs a generous 13.75lbs. and is a happy, healthy cat.

We would like to take the time to thank the Cat Protection Society for all the work they do to try to help all of the many many unwanted and homeless cats. Even with everything shelters offer and provide for these cats, it is still a stressful and abnormal life for many cats that cannot adapt. We know all of our clients already have many pets, but if you can find extra room in your heart and home for a shelter animal we could help some find a healthier and happier life.
