This gorgeous lilac-point Siamese mix male was found as a stray in the Brunswick, Maine, area, and is currently in the care of H.A.R.T., an all-volunteer shelter in Cumberland, Maine.
When he was found, the shelter staff thought he looked pretty thin, and after a thorough vet exam they discovered that he has hyperthyroidism. (And Here’s another informational website about hyperthyroidism, in case you want to learn more about the condition.)
O’rion needs to take a very inexpensive medicine for the rest of his life — and he’s very cooperative about taking it. H.A.R.T.’s vet estimates him to be between 7 and 9 years old, so he’ll still enjoy many quality years with a loving family.
H.A.R.T. is a state-licensed shelter that provides refuge and medical attention to cats that have been surrendered, abandoned, injured or abused, and finds loving homes to adopt them.
H.A.R.T. provides both medical and specialized attention to all of its residents. They offer a hard-to-place cat with a safe haven until the perfect home becomes available. Feral cats, or otherwise unadoptable cats, always have a permanent home at H.A.R.T.
O’rion is neutered and up to date on all his vaccinations. Please meet this soft, beautiful, and super friendly Siamese guy. You won’t be disappointed!
One final note: Just because this is the end of Adopt an Awesomely Special Pet Week, that doesn’t mean there are no more special-needs pets out there. H.A.R.T., and all kinds of shelters across the country, have lots of other “less adoptable” cats looking for homes, too.
For every special cat, there’s a special home. Could that home be with you?
