Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
The staff at the OHS call me a Poet! Did you know that Poets thrive in calm, stable environments? When things are a little too new and different, these kitties have a hard time showing their true personalities. Because Poets find change so hard, they usually like lots of safe places to hide and high perches to rest on. While each Poet is a little different, things that usually bring them out of their shell include playing with their favourite toys, eating some of their favourite treats, and seeking attention from their favourite people. During periods of change, Poets need a safe refuge where they be surrounded by these favourite things.
Poets can have different preferences, and it might take a little while to figure them out. Some Poets prefer play interactions where they can stalk and hunt in a fun game with you, while others may enjoy curling in your lap for a cozy snooze. While you may not see a lot of them at first, they’ll be thinking of you… and after they settle in, you’ll think they’ve always belonged!
I have special needs! While I was at the shelter, I had an infection with Calicivirus, which caused serious “cold-like” symptoms. I’m fine now, but I could have flare ups in the future that would require veterinary care, and I might be contagious to other cats at times.
I have special needs! I have some dental tartar on my teeth, and some associated gum inflammation. I will likely require a thorough oral health assessment and dental cleaning under general anesthesia within the next year.
I have medical needs; please contact an Adoption staff member to inquire about me “Jeffrey” shelter number A231482.
