Hi, I'm Stryker!
I have been in the care of WAG as part of their Critical Care program for over 160 days now but don't worry - I have never spent a single night at the shelter. I am in a wonderful foster home where I can relax and am doted on. When I first arrived, I was rushed for emergency care due to a urinary blockage which led me to become very unwell very quickly. After lots of tests, love and three nights in overnight care, I was stable enough for my catheter to be removed and for me to pee on my own! Everyone at the vet and the clinic was delighted, and I was able to be moved into a wonderful quiet foster home where I have been thriving.
Stryker will need his forever home to be calm and low stress. They will need to keep a close eye on him and his health in the future, as cats with blockage issues are more prone to reoccurrences. He will also need to be on a special diet ongoing to assist with his urinary health which will be a cost to consider. Proactive care is key - with monitoring for any changes in his litter box habits and behaviour and taking me to the vet at any sign of trouble. In return, Stryker is the sweetest boy who loves cuddles and play time, he is a lovely cat whose future family will be very lucky to call him theirs.
