Bowie is a sweet 4 yr. old male tabby cat. He was living outside as a stray when he was originally rescued and brought to us. He almost certainly had a home at some point. He was already neutered and is a super friendly and sociable boy. He was adopted last summer and was surrendered back to the Minnesota Humane Society when he became ill with pancreatitis, stopped eating and developed fatty liver disease. He was hospitalized for a week, fed through a nasogastric feeding tube for a month, received several medications and has completely recovered. The cause of his pancreatitis is unknown. His diet had been switched a month or so before it developed. It is possible the diet change was the cause.

Bowie is a snuggly guy who likes to cuddle with his family. His favorite time is bedtime. He loves to head bunt and purrs as he lays on or near you. He enjoys playing with toys; feather toys are at the top of the list. Bowie also really loves to look out the window and watch things, including birds, rabbits and of course squirrels. Bowie got along great with the foster's cats. He has not been exposed to any dogs, but given his nature, we think he would do fine with a cat friendly dog.

Bowie originally came to us last year with several dental issues. He had two broken teeth with impacted nerves and an oral mass. He underwent oral surgery and had the mass removed and thankfully it was benign. He had another bony growth removed during the dental surgery and this is something that could come back at some time. When he was surrendered back to us, he was again in need of dental work. He had a dental in June and had several teeth removed. Bowie will need regular dental evaluations and possibly dental surgeries.

You can visit Bowie at the Calhoun Chuck and Don's store.

Bowie is neutered, FeLuk/FIV negative, up to date on vaccinations, dewormed and microchipped.

Adoption Fee: $125.00
