Question by Duelen: Cat shelter?
are there any cat shelters in New york that specialize in taking care of cats who have FLUTD? my cat has FLUTD and since i’m away at college and my parents working we can’t really tak that great od care of him, so my parents want me to take him somewhere where they can make sure he drinks and gets his special food. i don’t want to take him to the SPCA because he’s an adult cat which means he’d be ther for a long time, and i don’t want him to be stuck in a cage all day.
he won’t drink from the water bowl, and we can’t leave his food on the floor because our other cat is allergic to it. and no, i can’t get an apartment. i don’t have the money (i’m a freshman) my school costs to much and i have to stay on campus for me to be able to keep my scholarship. and my parents are the ones making my give him away. they don’t want to take the extra effort , and since they both work they can’t keep a constant eye on him.

If you are looking to rehome, try www.petfinder.com and begin emailing and contacting local feline rescues. They tend to be educated on the extra attention cats with medical/special needs require and often time use foster homes until their cats are placed, verses cages.
Are you sure your parents can’t care for him or you can’t opt for an apartment that allows 1 cat? They tend to be pretty independent critters, so being at home alone all day while they work or you’re at school isn’t really the end of the world. Most pets accomodate the fact that their owners work 8 hour shifts.
