He is getting much better now.
Yes, they get VERY big. Males can get up to 20 lbs.!!!!!
I have 2 other cats and a dog.
Post a picture of your baby and we can help you name him!!
I'll never understand how people can be so cruel! There are so many adoption places for both cats and dogs! It's sad...
We found Snowball along the road where my daughter and her husband take morning walks. He also had fleas and earmites; but, thankfully no worms.
I will try to post a picture, but I'm a newbie and I have to learn how to do it.
I've been reading about it on one of the links here, but it's kind of confusing!
He is all white, blue eyes, and has beige on his tail and ears and nose area.
I haven't had a cat since I was a very little girl and have really had to study to learn their habits, etc. I have a 10-year-old female dog, and she is tolerating Snowball, but I know she'd rather have things back the way they were! I'm very proud of her for allowing him to harrass her all the time.
Hopefully they'll be best of friends before long.
What do your other cats and your dog think of him??
