Hi, I'm Stryker!
I have been in the care of WAG as part of their critical care program for a couple of weeks now. 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 can relax and recuperate.
Stryker will need his forever home to be calm and loss 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.
Stryker has moved into a new foster home and they gave us this little update!
"His little personality is starting to show… The first week or so he barely wanted pets and now he comes to us for attention & is even starting to curl up on our laps or snuggle under a blanket here & there. He loves birdwatching, his appetite has definitely increased and he just seems to be getting stronger and happier as he settles in with us. Oh, and he’s very curious about the dog who comes to visit and they smell each-other through the screen window. "
Stryker's foster mom helped him write his bio:
