Louie the Bengal
Louie the Bengal is ready for adoption in LA!
* Special Needs Senior *
Let us introduce you to Louie, one of the coolest animals you’ll ever meet. He is a gracious, sweet, mellow and loving guy. He is very smart and adaptable. Louie had a hard life before we took him in last year. He needed facial reconstructive surgery to breath properly and other medical care. He has such a strong will, profound resilience and a love for life!!!
His past neglect did not affect his spirit at all. He knew we were trying to help him. He loves his vet who we call his Godfather. And Louie’s baseline health is really good now. Two issues that will be ongoing is that he will permanently have some respiratory congestion. It does not affect his health. It’s just part of who he is. And he is incontinent indoors. So he does need to wear a diaper inside. We can go through that, it’s pretty simple. But you have to be up for that type of care. He must have patience, kindness and sensitivity towards his needs.
He loves going on walks and will need to go on at least one walk daily. He doesn’t wear a diaper outside and loves the freedom. If it’s a long walk, he might get tired and you need to carry him back. A pet stroller is great for him to walk in busy areas or when he gets tired. Or at least he needs to take breaks on long walks. But he has more energy than I do frankly. We are looking for an adopter who is very intuitive towards others and has innate empathy.
We don’t treat him like he has a disability. His foster home has been “catified” a la Jackson Galaxy with climbing steps high on walls, tall cat trees, and changing obstacle courses. Bengals NEED a stimulating environment to be happy. He would love forts made out of large boxes with cut outs to explore. Although he’s an old guy, and takes long day naps, he is a curious adventurer.
His amazing caregiver, who got him through this whole experience, is ready to let him find his forever home. Louie has an infectious, charismatic and loving personality. He is fine with mellow, beta cats. And he loves dogs! He thinks he’s the king of all dogs. But when you do go on walks, be cautious with off leash dogs b/c we don’t know their temperament towards cats.
The person who adopts Louie is going to have an awesome, special needs, happy and loving kitty who will a loyal companion!
