Special Needs: Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin is a special kitty looking for a special home.  Orphaned at 6 weeks of age Christopher Robin found his way to Feline Rescue and joined a litter of five kittens in one of our foster homes.  He was adopted by the momma cat and nursed alongside the other kittens.

At about two and a half months of age his foster caregiver noticed a sore on one of his paws and observed him licking it frequently.  He was initially seen by our vet and then referred to a dermatologist.  Christopher Robin was diagnosed with allergies and placed on a special diet and medication to control his allergies.  He seems to do well with his special diet and should be able to discontinue the medication.

Other than needing special food Christopher Robin is a normal playful, friendly, sweet, gentle guy.  He is now 9 months old and all of his litter mates have been adopted.  It was very difficult for him when his friends were adopted, but he is now enjoying the companionship of the new foster kittens in his foster home.

Christopher Robin is still searching for his family and he would very much like to be able to bond with a permanent family. We would love to have him find his special home in the New Year.
