About me
Personality: Oscar is a social and outgoing cat who thoroughly enjoys his time with people. He approaches readily and will circle you for attention while marching in place excitedly. Oscar is a huge fan of water, especially running water, and would appreciate being offered his favorite drink in several variations. He also loves being pet so much, he'll flop over and offer his belly for admiration; just be sure to look and not touch! This handsome boy loves to lounge, but also has energy in reserve for playing to pass the time.


History: Oscar was transferred in from another shelter.


Cat/Dog Skills: Oscar has not been around other cats and dogs while in our care.


Medical:

Oscar has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) on a routine screening test. FIV-positive cats frequently appear healthy for many years and may live a full lifespan with proper veterinary and preventive care.


Oscar also transferred to HSSV with a history of drinking a lot of water and urinating large amounts in his litter box. Extensive diagnostic testing did not reveal a cause for his excessive water drinking and urination and by the process of elimination, it has been determined that he most likely has diabetes insipidus. This disease prevents Oscar from concentrating his urine. With his urine concentration so low, he needs access to water at all times and access to large, clean litter boxes.
