Lino's Profile

Hi, I’m Lino!

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 a malocclusion which means my mandible (lower jaw) aligns abnormally with my maxilla (upper jaw), as a result my teeth do not align with each other in a normal way. I will require regular veterinary check-ups to monitor my dental health. In the future I may need dental care for this condition, possibly including dental extractions or other procedures.

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 had eye infections that were likely related to a “cat cold virus”. I may have flare ups if I become stressed, which could require veterinarian visits and treatment. I may also be contagious to other cats at certain times.

I am currently relaxing in a foster home as I wait for my forever family. Please contact an adoptions staff to book an appointment to meet me!
