Introducing Grizzy!

Grizzy Bear

It’s Grizzy!

About a week ago I adopted Grizzy Bear (aka Grizzy B, aka Grizby, aka Griz). I adopted him from a local shelter. They guesstimated him to be about three years ago, but the vet seems to think he’s a bit younger. Based on his energy levels, I wouldn’t be surprised.

A co-worker volunteers at the shelter where I got him. I was actually going to get another cat, but I thought “Oh, I’ll just swing by that shelter over lunch.” Grizzy sold me on him when he jumped into my lap and started rolling around. 🙂

He’s been a great cat; very affectionate and loving. My only concerns are his health. He wasn’t eating at first. I understand adjustment periods, etc., but after a few days of no eating and almost no water intake, I decided it was time to see the vet. Turns out he had a nasty ear infection in both ears. He started eating a bit since then, but not too much. Then about three days after that I saw a worm (and was scarred for life, haha). The next day the vet gave him tapeworm medication.

Today I see he’s scratching his ears again *and* he seems back to his two-bites-of-food-a-day routine. I suppose tomorrow might be another vet visit? I just want him to be healthy! He’s such a great cat. He sleeps with me at night and loves to just hang out. I think he would be really great with another cat, so once he gets healthy and has more time to fully adjust to the new living arrangement, I think I will look for a little buddy for him.

I’m so happy with my Griz. It’s amazing how a house transforms into a home when there are four paws padding around. 🙂

    What a beautiful kitty Grizzy is and such a touching story. He knew you would take very good care of him and give him the love he so deserves. Tiny had a few health issues, too, when I adopted him but today he is a very healthy and happy kitty. I’m so glad you adopted him and so is Grizzy.
