Residents of a retirement home had been feeding a stray - from the time he was a kitten - for almost a year. He knew his meal-times and, though wary of strangers, let his benefactors touch and brush him. But they worried about his future in an uncertain outdoor life. PAW was contacted and, after not so many attempts, the little cat was trapped.


Do you enjoy the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer? How about a bright and fun August? This August is sunny and orange, and nearly two years old, entering that long season when a cat is at his prime. Like the month after which he’s named, he’s full of activities, and finds fun in bouncing balls and fuzzy mice. After a long summer’s day, you may want to relax in the tub, but August likes to play in it! No water, of course, but a ball he can chase! The warm months put food into focus, and August loves his meals! His time as a stray made eating a big concern; when he’s finished his dinner (which is done quickly). But August (the month) is also when we get together with friends. August (the cat) is learning his social skills with other felines, and though he might be at his best as an only-cat, an energetic youngster who is into action may complement August nicely. In the meantime, August will adore his people; it wouldn’t take him long to decide his new family are the best.

NOTE: It's been determined that August has an allergy to chicken. Once chicken was completely removed from his diet, he stopped throwing up. There are several non-chicken foods available at pet stores but the label must be read carefully as they can still contain eggs or chicken fat. His foster mom feeds him a dry food called "Fussie Cat Quail & Duck Meal" (that's the name of the brand, he's not a fussy eater) or Acana Bountiful Catch (fish) Both are available at Homes Alive and PetValu. PetValu also carries another one that agrees with him: Ultra Green Pea & Duck. For canned food, he enjoys Nulo Salmon & Mackerel. It is available at Homes Alive. He is fine with other canned food as well, but, again, check the ingredient list on the label. If you have other cats, it might be worth considering switching their diet to his. That way there's no concern about August getting into their food bowls because he will try! He is doing great on his new diet. He's healthy, compact and muscular.
