The handsome and dapper senior Siamese gentleman pictured above is Fred. Here’s what Megan B. says about Fred and how he came to be a part of her life:
This is the newest addition to our family! This is our 11 year old siamese Fred, who we adopted from our city’s shelter after being surrendered by his owners. People kept placing holds to adopt him, but wouldn’t come back to get him after they found out about his medical problems. He is in stage one of kidney disease and only has his incisor teeth left due to bad oral health issues. Despite his medical diagnosis and his age, we still welcomed him into our home! He gets along great with our other two rescue siamese and our rescue dog. Although he’s old in age, he’s young at heart. We love him so much and encourage other cat lovers out there to adopt senior cats! They need homes as well and have just as much love to give.
