Sponsor A Kitty
 

We have numerous cats in our care with special needs for prescription food and/or medical requirements.  For only $25 a month (less than a dollar a day) your sponsorship will ensure that all of your sponsored cat’s needs are met.  You will receive a bi-monthly update on your sponsored cat and your name will be placed in a position of honour in our Reception Room under the photo of your sponsored cat thanking you for your support.

As well as sponsoring a stray with individual needs, you may also sponsor a healthy cat dear to your heart who has no specific medical requirements but would appreciate your contribution toward the daily care such as food, litter, toys, etc.  Please indicate which cat you would like to sponsor. Sponsors may be individuals, families, friends or work place groups.

Payments may be made monthly through Canada Helps, e-transfers (Question:  What is this for?  Response: Rescue) or post-dated cheques mailed to DunRoamin’ Stray & Rescue, Box 574, Florenceville-Bristol, NB, E7L 1Y8 or dropped off to DunRoamin’ at 55 Allison Road, Riverbank, NB (basement entrance, please).  Please make sure you provide your complete mailing address for income tax purposes and your e-mail address so that we may keep you up to date on the status of your sponsored friend.

On behalf of all our sponsored cats and all others who come through our doors, we'd like to thank everyone who supports our strays.  It is only through your kindness and generosity that we are able to help these little ones.  Sincerely - "Thank you."

Benji

Awaiting a sponsor

"Benji" came to us on June 2, 2020 from Centreville where his owner could no longer care for him.  He has hyperthyroidism which requires medication daily, which he accepts with no complaints at all.  Benji is a very loving and affectionate little boy who also requires a bit of dental work. 

Benji is a sweetheart, but will tell you when you've started to cross a line by putting his teeth on you, but will not bite!  He just wants us to know who's in charge, and as every cat owner knows, it's not us!

REQUIREMENTS:  Methimazole twice daily for life to control his hyperthyroidism

"Atlas" came to DunRoamin' on November 27, 2019 from Beechwood.  He was born about November 27, 2015 so was only about four years old.  Atlas had been urinating inappropriately for several months and his family could no longer keep him, so he came to us for help.

Atlas is a very nice boy who was immediately assessed by his new vet friend.  Among other things, he had enlarged lymph nodes and inflammation and has since been diagnosed with irritable bowl disorder.  He has the very best of care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Atlas has had some issues trying to put on weight but he's now maintaining his weight and may even decide to put on a few ounces!  He will be vaccinated as soon as he is healthy enough to receive them.  Atlas is currently on medication and prescription food. 

Atlas is very friendly, loving and affectionate and he is very grateful for the care of his new vet friend who checks in on him frequently.  His greatest wish is for a home where he can be spoiled, even if he has to take a little medication daily - it's well worth it, and so is he!!

REQUIREMENTS:  medications, prescription food for life, vaccines

Samuel has been with us since 2013.  He was skinny and lethargic when he came in and was soon diagnosed with epilepsy.  His family was unable to undertake his care.  Sam requires medication three times daily and is eating a Royal Canin Hypo-Allergenic diet.  He is 11 years old and is our "Walmart Greeter."  He'll be the first to welcome you when you come to our reception area!

Your sponsorship will provide Samuel with his daily medication and Hypo-Allergenic food.  Sam is extremely friendly and his gratitude is evident - just look in those eyes!  Sam provides our Facebook article to keep everyone up to date on the comings and goings at DunRoamin', as well as any other news.  He's quite witty!

Chazzy

Maryn, Jane, Lydia & Meredith Christie, Toronto, ON

"Chazzy" came to DunRoamin' on October 25, 2010, after being found on the side of the road in the pouring rain near Tim Horton's on Beardsley Road near Woodstock, NB two days earlier.  He appeared to have an injured leg, as he would not let his rescuers touch it.  He was very hungry, cold, wet, thin and exhausted.  He was taken in and cared for until he could be brought for medical help.  He was born about May, 2007.

Chazzy was diagnosed with an extreme number of fleas.  He had never been neutered, had worms, bloody diarrhea and an ulcerated tongue.  This would have made it very difficult and painful for him to eat, thus explaining his lack of weight.   He also had a urinary problem in which he was unable to pee.  He required surgery which involved amputating his penis and has been eating Royal Canin Urinary S/O food since then and, as with all our cats who are prescribed this food, he has never had a recurrence at all!  He is a perfectly happy, healthy and normal cat.

Chazzy shows his gratitude by purring, kneading and cuddling with any human who comes near him. He's currently in a foster home awaiting that permanent family  of which he's been dreaming for years.  He is a beautiful boy who would really like to have a warm, safe home forever.  His ramblin' days are done - it's no fun!!  And by the way, he'd be pleased to go to any home - even (maybe especially) one with a dog!

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food (Royal Canin S/O/Calorie Control) for life

Goochi

Sponsored by:

Janice McIntosh

Penny McCain
Florenceville, NB

On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared.  They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms.  All these troubles were quickly addressed.  She was born about December 7, 2010.

Goochi was rescued by a senior citizen who had seen her, her mother and two sisters in the snow outside her apartment.   The temperatures had been below -25*C and when you add in the wind chill, few creatures, if any, could survive outdoors for long in that kind of cold.

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and have the benefit of plenty of food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi has been waiting for her home for eight years now.  She is not a cuddle cat and is not very comfortable around humans but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.  Gooch has a family with DunRoamin' - she's loved and will always be cared for.  She LOVES her diet of Royal Canin Dental food.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food (Royal Canin Dental), lots of love and understanding.

Strauss

Bliss Burgoyne
North View, NB

"Strauss" came to DunRoamin' on October 28, 2014 from the Brookville area where she was one of several cats who had taken refuge in a shed.  Kind neighbours had very generously taken on the task of their care and were diligent enough to notice a lump on her belly.  Strauss was diagnosed with an umbilical hernia which was quickly repaired when she was accepted as a DunRoamin' ward. Strauss was born about May 1, 2014.

Strauss has become a very affectionate and trusting little girl.  As of January 21, 2015, she is fostered with a family in Bristol.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!  She must eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure that she does not develop crystals in her urine which can cause her much harm.  Under her current care and in her wonderful foster home, she's perfectly healthy and happy and is grateful for her new life.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

Abel

Sponsored by:

Eden Rogers
Aroostook, NB

"Abel" came back to us on April 20, 2018 from Woodstock where he had been adopted in December 2015.  He had originally come to us from Lakeville in 2012 where he was one of several cats who were hanging around a home but had no one to care for him.  He, his brother Abner and sister Avis came to us all at the same time.  Abner and Avis have both been adopted.

Abel is a sweet little boy who was originally very timid and needed his brother Abner to feel safe, but he's now very confident, secure and happy on his own.  Abel is eating a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to make sure that he is healthy as he has a tendency to form crystals in his urine which may block his ureter if he eats other foods.  We have had dozens of cats who have been placed on this diet and it works extremely well - no problems at all, as long as they eat this diet.

Abel is currently in a foster home where he will be loved, cuddled and doted upon until he is chosen for a permanent home - he can't wait!  He was born about April 1, 2012.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

Razor

Cayden Kenney & Madison Draper

Mike & Pat Cabatu
New Maryland, NB

"Razor" came back to us on February 4, 2016 when, due to changing family circumstances, they were unable to keep him.  He had originally come from Woodstock on June 20, 2014 where he had arrived as a stray at a home where a young couple spent much time helping stray cats in their area.  They recognized his need for medical assistance and made certain he received it.  He had an aural hematoma on his right ear and had injuries around his head and neck.  He was subsequently adopted to a home in Hartland, but due to family considerations, he was returned to us.  He was born some time in 2006, so he's about ten years old.

Razor had some wounds which were diagnosed as the result of Feline Cutaneous Asthenia, a hereditary condition in which the skin does not contain enough collagen and therefore has less elasticity than normal.  This can cause damage to the skin if it is stretched and torn.  Razor is currently on medication to help combat this, but this disease is incurable.  He will stay in a foster home and be loved, cuddled and spoiled as long as possible.  He is a very sweet little boy who loves people, cats, dogs and everything in between.

Razor must wear an Elizabethan cone to ensure he does not further injure his ear by scratching.  He has undergone surgery on his ear and also had surgery on his eyes due to entropion - a condition in which the eyelids turn inward and the eyelashes scratch the eyeball.  His surgery was a resounding success and he's doing very well.  Despite all his challenges, he is an amazingly sweet and loving little boy.

REQUIREMENTS:  daily medication for life, Soft Paws for itchiness

Debi O'Leary
Woodstock, NB

"Quarry" came to us on July 28, 2018 from Newbridge where she was found on the side of the road, possibly having been struck by a vehicle.  She had cuts and scratches on her face and fluids in her abdomen.  She has received all required medical care and is doing much better as of a month later.  She has been spayed and will be up to date on her vaccines as of mid-September 2018. 

Quarry is timid and will require a very quiet home.  She will most probably not be an extremely affectionate cat but would appreciate a safe, warm and loving place to live.  She has been diagnosed with a condition called "pillow foot" which is an inflammation or swelling in the pads of her feet.  It is not a contagious condition, but it can reoccur or "flare up."  For this reason Quarry must be an indoor cat ONLY to ensure she does not injure her feet and allow the pillow foot to flare.  A mild form is not necessarily uncomfortable but should she be out on her own and the pad swells, splits open or develops ulcers or sores, she would require treatment.  Quarry would like to have a quiet, loving home where she can be cared for to ensure her feet will not flare up again.  She also requires medication for itchiness.

REQUIREMENTS:  medication, food, vaccines, love and patience

Langford

Saint John, NB

"Langford" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2019 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about six months and was being fed and sheltered during the recent cold winter months.  Yesterday, he had appeared with a large bleeding wound on the left side of his neck.  Langford was born about March 8, 2017, so had apparently been surviving on his own for a while.

Langford was delivered immediately to his newest vet friend for the medical intervention he required.  It was learned that Langford had sustained a previous wound on his neck which had abscessed and burst. Langford was prescribed antibiotics and other required medical care, which he quickly received.  Langford is covered with numerous old fight wounds, indicating that he's had a rough life to date, but all that changed today.  He is very loving and affectionate and is grateful for the warm bed and plentiful food.  He's a social eater who prefers to have company when he eats, so when someone is with him, he eats up a storm of that ever-present banquet!  He'll put on some weight and be fine very soon and he hopes that someone will give him a loving home.  Langford tested positive for FIV.  Please read about FIV and FeLV here.

REQUIREMENTS:  food, vaccines, medication for itchiness for life, love and care until he finds a home

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV-positive cats only lived with other FIV-positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  We currently have FIV+ cats living with FIV- cats in foster homes and have experienced no difficulty whatsoever.

"Trez" returned to us on December 27, 2019.  He originally came to us on July 13, 2018 from Riverbank, NB where he had been abandoned in a kennel outside the door of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He had very long nails, ear mites, was not neutered and was terrified.  All these problems were addressed and he quickly became a cuddle cat once he realized he was safe and among friends. 

Trez was adopted on December 15, 2018 to a home in Hartland, but it was reported that he was not happy in that home, so he returned to us.  He developed a bit of an upper respiratory infection (cold) which was treated.  He has recently experienced some diarrhea and is working on getting it all under control.  He hopes for a chance at another home very soon.  He is friendly, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet him.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, vaccines, ongoing medications

Frazzle

Sponsored by:

Anne McIntyre
Bath, NB

"Frazzle" came to us from Waterville on the morning of May 13, 2019 where she had been found on a porch at 8 am.  Frazzle could barely move.  She was brought for help and was immediately taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for examination and assistance.  Frazzle was not in good shape.  She was born about May 13, 2017, but weighed only three pounds.

Frazzle was dehydrated, very pale, had halitosis, was emaciated, lethargic, had burdocks matted in her fur and had a purulent discharge coming from her eyes.  A thermometer revealed that her body temperature was also several degrees below normal.  She was very cold.

Frazzle was warmed up, given intravenous fluids, medications and several tests were conducted to determine if her kidneys and other organs were working properly.  Frazzle was so exhausted and weak that, in the next few hours and days, she could barely hold her head up when trying to eat warm food.

On May 14, 2019, Frazzle received a blood transfusion from a generous feline donor which has begun to make a world of difference for her.  Thanks, Biggie, you saved her life!  Frazzle used the litter box for the first time on May 15 and appears to have the tiniest bit of energy - that's a WONDERFUL sign!

On May 31, 2019, we learned that Frazzle is improving nicely and is comfortable, happy, purring and content with her huge staff of human servants who wait on her hand and foot, day and night and she will be treated like a queen while under the medical care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Her food must be put through a blender and she is fed through a tube until she is able to eat on her own.  Soon!

She (and we) would like to thank the Florencevile Veterinary Clinic for their kind and hard work to ensure this little one has a chance at the life she deserves.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress. 

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, medication, vaccines when healthy enough, FIV/FeLV tests

Pampurr

New Maryland, NB

"Pampurr" returned to us on March 11, 2019.  He originally came to us on July 3, 2018 from Marne, NB.  He had been found all alone in a driveway on Canada Day and still had his umbilical cord attached.  He was only about one day old and would never have made it alone.  He was rescued by a very nice young lady in Marne and fostered by two other very nice ladies, one in Beechwood (thanks, Sarah!) and one in Florenceville who has fostered more than 100 cats and kittens for us.  Thanks, Karen!

Pampurr had to be fed by syringe and stimulated to pee and poop every couple of hours around the clock, which was no small task for his caregiver - she didn't get much sleep, but it's what he required as he had no mom to care for him.  He had some issues but has received the best of medical care and attention.   Pampurr was most probably born on July 1, 2018 and he's very fortunate to have his DunRoamin' friends to provide for him.  He was prescribed several medications to ensure he had the very best start, but soon didn't need them any more.  He experienced some diarrhea but was eating well, purring loudly and playing endlessly.  He loved to stand on your feet, then climb up your leg!  He also liked chin rubs, head scratches and playing with your toes! 

Pampurr was adopted on December 7, 2018, but came back in March as he had trouble controlling his bowels and had frequent diarrhea.  He did not want to use the litter box, so came back to us to try to be trained to do so.  Pampurr still does not prefer to poop in the litter box, but we're working on that!  He is extremely loving and affectionate and we hope to ensure he utilizes the facilities very soon!

REQUIREMENTS:  stool softeners (which he loves!), prescription food and medications for life

"Gibbs" returned to us on April 26, 2019.    He originally came to us on April 13, 2018 from the Arthurette area where he had been a stray for quite some time.  He was being fed, but his benefactor was unable to catch him.  On this day, Gibbs appeared with injuries and was able to be caught as a result - he wasn't in good shape.    Gibbs's veterinary examination revealed that he had fleas, ear mites, was missing an upper canine and had several broken canine teeth.  Those would be very painful for him, but his more serious injuries had most probably been inflicted by an animal.  He had open wounds at the base of his left ear and the left side of his neck, as well as a large abscess on the right side of his neck.  These injuries required much medical care, including sutures and antibiotics.  He was born about April 12, 2010.

Gibbs is relatively shy.  He would like a quiet home where he can be loved and cared for, but is not extremely interactive.  As a nine-year old, he's happy to sleep, eat and maybe watch a little TV with a human or two.  He'd like a quiet home without kids and dogs.  He wouldn't mind being an only cat, but he can get along easily with another quiet and loving cat.  One thing we have to remember is that Gibbs does NOT like to travel!  He becomes stressed, so when he goes to his new home, we'll need to make sure he is relaxed and happy!  We don't want him stressed or car sick!  That's not fun!

On May 24, 2019, Gibbs was diagnosed with a case of pancreatitis, but he's been treated and cared for by his very best vet friend and he's back to normal (er, well above normal!  He's a cat!!!)

"Randall" originally came to DunRoamin' on February 7, 2012 from Grand Falls where he had been a stray in the community for about five years.  He recently came back dragging himself - obviously injured.

Examination revealed that Randall was scared, dehydrated, had an infection, a fused lumbar and was FIV+.  At this point he couldn't walk.  Randall was born approximately some time in 2005.

On July 16, 2012, Randall became a Cat For Seniors cat and lived in Woodstock with his senior until February 2020 when he returned to us as his senior was no longer able to keep him.  Randall shows signs of his age, but his purrer works just fine and he is so happy to have both feline and human friends and company.

Randall is a sweet cat.  He is now approximately 15 years old and is so grateful to have the life he has enjoyed since becoming a DunRoamin' cat.  He thanks everyone who has helped him along the way, including his newest benefactors.  Thank you so much.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription Urinary S/O food, stool softeners/ medication ongoing for life.

Florenceville-Bristol, NB

"Oggy" came to us on June 25, 2019.  He was severely emaciated, had ulcers on both eyes and he was matted to the point that when he was shaved his fur came off in one large, thick, dirty piece.  He had multiple pelvic fractures, he was anemic and had some recent liver trauma.  It is most likely he had been struck by a car at some time in the recent past.  In addition to all these woes, Oggy had entropion, a condition in which the eyelashes curve inward toward the eyeball and scratch it each time he would blink.  This condition has already been rectified by his new vet friend.  He received the best of medical care and was soon eating as if he hadn't eaten in a very long time (which is probably accurate).

Oggie underwent surgery to remove his hind leg and he is now perfectly fine.  He gets around as if he has all four legs!  He loves his food and will follow us around while you take his dish to his eating spot, yelling at us the whole time!

Oggy is a social eater and he's eating everything we put in front of him!  He loves his caregivers and is very happy to be warm, safe, pain-free and have a full belly and friends to care for him.  He is a sweet boy who is very grateful to be warm, safe and pain-free.

Chiffon is a healthy, happy little girl who is diabetic.  She requires an injection of insulin each morning and evening (which she takes very easily) and eats a diabetic diet, but this is no big deal for her or for her humans and it's inexpensive, so no worries!  She is very loving, very affectionate and a very happy girl.  She'd be ecstatic if she could go to a new home along with Chicory, her friend with whom she has lived for seven years.  They're very close and love each other.

Hatfield was a bit timid, but he's learning that he's safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need!  He just needs a little more time to come around, and he's doing very well.  He has had some itchiness on his legs and belly which require medication but he is doing very well.

"Mordecai" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2019 from Perth-Andover where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about a year.  Although people were feeding him at times, he had no one to care for him.  He had recently been noticed to be matted and have a hard time eating.

Mordecai was examined by his new vet and found to be in poor shape.  He tested positive for FIV and had moderate muscle wasting in much of his body.  He was dehydrated, matted, had ear mites and such severe dental disease that all his teeth had to be removed as roots were exposed, several were abscessed and many were already missing.   We've all had a toothache, but that must have HURT!

Mordecai was already neutered and was born about November 15, 2008.  We hope to make the remainder of his life much more enjoyable than what he has obviously already been through.  All help will be greatly appreciated.

Maya immediately went to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for assessment and diagnosis where it was learned that she was lean, had moderate tartar, gingivitis and was diabetic.  It appears she had never been spayed.

Maya is now on a diabetic diet and  is receiving medication twice daily to control her sugars.  Her insulin has been replaced with another medication and she seems to be doing much better on it.  She is a very sweet little girl who wants only to have a home and family where she will be safe, healthy and loved.

Julie Smith
Keswick Ridge, NB

"Harold" came to DunRoamin' on March 13, 2020 from Perth-Andover, NB where he had been living under an apartment building and eating garbage.  No one could help him, so he came to us.

Harold was born about March 13, 2015.  He was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which means he needed all his teeth removed, and had hair loss on his back end.  His ears show some "character" as well.  This little boy needed help.  He is currently on antibiotics and pain medication.

Harold very quickly has made himself a favourite.  He is affectionate, loving and will turn himself inside out for a cuddle - he's very grateful to be warm, safe, have good and frequent food and have loving caregivers.  Once he's healthy again, he'd love to be an indoor cat so he can live safely and have his own family to love.  He was already neutered upon his arrival.  Harold tested negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  As you can see by his face, he LOVES chin rubs - he's missed out on so many, but that changes today!!

Harold has undergone dental surgery and will receive full vaccines, lots of nutritious food and parasite control.   He is very choosy about what he eats and is not gaining weight as he should, but his caregivers are on that!  We hope he'll be fine soon.

"Paloma," a beautiful calico, came to us from the Oakland area on June 10, 2019 where approximately 20 cats were living.  Many had significant upper respiratory infections and require much medical intervention.  Paloma was born about June 10, 2017 and had moderate stomatitis, ear mites, had been exposed to fleas and upper respiratory infection and required dental care in the immediate future.  She has since had most teeth removed and feels much better.

Paloma is a beautiful little girl who is hoping for a nice, quiet, loving and affectionate family that she might join for the rest of her life.  She's never been without feline friends as far as we know, so she'd probably be happier with another cat friend, but then again, she might just love getting 100% of the attention 100% of the time!!

Bama is currently staying with us and shares his space with  Goochie.  He requires a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food and is doing well.  He was initially timid, but scratch his back and it takes him all of five whole seconds to be yours!  He's a sweet boy!  He's up to date on his vaccines and is anxious to join a family again.  As long as he eats his Royal Canin Urinary S/O food only, he'll be 100% good!  We've had dozens of cats on this diet and have not yet had a single recurrence!  Bama is looking forward to having a loving family. He is currently on medications, but we hope he'll be fine soon. 

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin S/O)

"Cassie" came to us on June 8, 2020, from the Arthurette area.  She was drastically overweight, had tartar on her teeth which will require a cleaning in the future and she also had fecal balls stuck to her back end as she was too large to groom herself.  Cassie had been professionally groomed to remove mats in her fur and she seems to be feeling better already.  Cassie was born about June 8, 2011.

Cassie is a sweet little girl.  She settled in with us with no trouble at all and is currently keeping Samuel and Gibbs company in our Reception area.  She is eating a prescribed diet to help her lose weight and become 100% healthy again.  She has begun her vaccine protocol and is eager to meet someone who is willing to cuddle her (she LOVES attention) and commit to her diet to help her reach and maintain a healthy weight.  She loves people, loves other cats and LOVES her new laser light.  She is a very sweet girl and this is the first day of the rest of her life - we'll make it purrfect, Cassie!  It'll take some work, but we'll get there together.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription dietary food until she loses several pounds

"Chip" returned to us on February 27, 2018.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 29, 2012 from Bath, NB where he had come to a home displaying injuries.  He had ear mites and a wound on his feet and the back of his right front leg, all of which were treated by his new friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He was adopted to a home on January 15, 2014 where he lived happily.  In February, 2018, Chip began to urinate inappropriately and was diagnosed with bladder stones.  He underwent surgery to remove them and was soon doing well.  Chip was born about July 1, 2009 and is a real sweetheart.  He loves to lay upside down and have his belly rubbed and he's a great purrer!

Chip underwent a second surgery to remove additional bladder stones and his penis had to be removed as a result of damage inflicted by the stones.  He is just fine now - just ask Chazzy - he had the same surgery years ago.  As a matter of fact, he tells us he's just perfect!!

Chip requires a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure he does not develop further problems, and we've had dozens of cats on this diet - there have been absolutely no problems or recurrences once they're on this diet!

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription Urinary S/O food for life
