Meet Bear Bear. Sweet senior man totally overwhelmed with life right now and its heartbreaking to see him here at his age and in his condition without a home. Hes skinny and not in the best overall condition, out vet diagnosed with with a thyroid condition which he is now on meds for and takes them easily crushed up in his wet food. This in time will help him gain back some much needed weight and look and feel a lot better. He will need to be on these meds the rest of his life, but they are very affordable and easy to get through any pharmacy with a script from your vet. He is good with cats, though in the shelter we do have him housed by himself because he is on medications we want to make sure he gets. Bear Bear spends most of his day trying to be invisible here, hiding under his bed and avoiding contact. I spent some time sitting with him and while at first he just wanted to get away from me, after just a couple minutes he started relaxing and the purring starting and then the "biscuit making" started. He loves the soft conversation and gentle attention and then was standing and bum arching for more and initiating more snuggles by pushing his head into my hand. He deserves a loving home for the rest of his life, one that is quiet and understanding that he may reject love at first, but he will come around and appreciate having a family again.
