AC1010 - Syrus

Hi there, my name as stated above is Syrus. Believe it or not, I am actually 15 years young and oh yes indeed, I am wearing very, very well for my age. I am fit and healthy, but a little lazy now my teenage years have passed; I prefer a comfy bed and fuss to painting the town red. Am I sad that my party days have passed, you ask? No way! I love being a snuggle monster and curling up on the bed with you for quiet time and attention, I never get tired of it so PLEASE be prepared to spend a lot of time with me.

Companions (Children, Dogs & Cats)
My current housemates include several other cats and kittens, a wacky rabbit who thinks he is a cat plus three boisterous young male humans. I get along with all of them, however even after all these years I am still ladies’ man and either spend most of my time with the ladies in the house or I just keep myself to myself. If I am honest I do adore the resident small people and as you can imagine they can make a good deal of noise, but that’s not an issue as nothing fazes me.

Likes / Dislikes
When it comes to food, I love anything and everything. I have wet food for breakfast and dinner plus biscuits during the day. And an older gent as myself is of course is fully skilled in the litter box department.

Medical Notes: Syrus was exposed to Ringworm, a common fungal infection, and Calicivirus, a respiratory infection. He did not show symptoms and was given the all clear by the vet. A kitten from Syrus’ foster home likely developed Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). FIP is a genetic mutation of a common feline infection called Feline Coronavirus. It is not known why some cats develop FIP and others do not, however there are a number of factors including a genetic predisposition. There is no treatment for FIP, the disease is fatal. Dogs and humans are not at risk of transmission of this condition. There is no way to know whether any of the other fosters in the home will develop it, but after the age of 18 months old, the chances of developing it decreases significantly. We are asking for a reduced adoption fee due to the small risk of Syrus also developing FIP.
