Star's Profile

Hi, I’m Star!

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 often feel frightened by new people and situations. To help me adjust, I will need a safe space in the home to call my own. With time and patience, I will come out of my shell and show my wonderful personality.

I am looking for a quiet adult only home!

I have had some trouble cleaning my back end which has led to some skin irritation. I will benefit from a veterinary weight loss plan which may improve my ability to groom. My conformation may continue to predispose me to skin issues around the back end even with weight loss. I may need some help to make sure my hind end stays clean. It is possible I may need veterinary care if I develop skin irritation in the future.

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.
