Sufferin’ succotash! This is Sylvester!
Sylvester is an approximately 7 year old male. He was brought to the shelter after he had been discovered by an older woman. She had found him hiding in her shed eating duck pellets. When he first came in, he had an eye infection and an infestation of cat lice. But he has since been through treatment and is looking (and feeling) much better!
Sylvester is a sweet cat who wants nothing more than a can of wet food and a few good pats. You’ll find that if you open a can of wet food anywhere in Sylvester’s vicinity, he will cry and beg for a taste! Needless to say, he is very food motivated and will quickly learn to love you!
Because of his case of cat lice, he currently has nits in his fur. He does NOT have any living lice on his body. The dead nits will fall off with time or will dissipate as he sheds his coat. Monthly treatment of Advantage will prevent any lice from coming back. Cat lice is species specific, and is NOT contagious to humans or other animals such as dogs or small animals.
