Meet Sooty!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Sooty is spending the next 24hours with me I seem to be acting as his legal gaurdian now as no one wants the poor boy and the woman who has him upstairs can`t really look after him properly.

So tomorrow he is going to the vets first thing for a de-matt but he has to be starved tonight and because this lady would probably forget, I have him in the office at the back of my flat for the night. This is the first time I`ve been able to get half decent pictures of him. The back here is very secure so he has been out doors for the first time in months and had a blast!

A-hem! Without further ado, I present SOOTY!


He got a bit over excited and was trotting about like a shetland pony

















Isn`t he handsome?! He reminds me of Riley and Wicket I wish I could have him

Hi Sooty! I wonder where you got your name. Have you been a bad little boy and played in the coal bin?

You know I felt such an idiot when I was registering him at the vets. They did the usual Name, Sex, Age, Breed, then she got to colour and said, 'Oh, black of course.'
I was like, 'Wow! How did you know that?!' and she said well, he is called Sooty!

He is massive! It really isn`t just his fur, he is really big built, bigger than Kitty! I will post some 'post hair-cut' pics tomorrow. He`s going to feel so much better

Wow! he's GORGEOUS!!!! Is he just a domestic LH moggie or does he have some pedigree in him? He has a really short muzzle, you can tell from the side. And long, curled in whiskers... that are very interesting.

He sure is a handsome big fellow Sorry I didn't quite understand his story from your first post. I gather that he belongs to a lady staying upstairs, who cannot take care of him properly so much so that his fur gets matted up... and somewhere in the middle of that she decides that she doesn't want him? Oh, I'm confusing myself Looking forward to post-grooming photos!

He has! Apparently he is part persian. Not sure if he is half or a quarter but it`s in there somewhere!

Ok, it is a very confusing story. I`ll try to make it short!
Sooty belonged to my landlords MIL who lived in a cottage on his property and I used to clean for her once a week.

She is 97 and had to go into residential care at the beginning of the year and the landlord gave Sooty to some people in the flat next door to me. They were asked to leave and I was unable to find him a new home for Sooty so the landlord gave him to a woman up stairs who has learning diffs and lives in one small room. She is not able to groom him properly so I can see I`m going to be up there every day doing it

Well, he`s going to stay with me for anouther night so he can wake up properly then I have to give him back

I`m really worried now because the vet rang after they did the pre-anaesthetic blood test and said he has kidney disease so they may only be able to work a little bit on him and that they would give him sub-q fluids to help his kidneys flush out the drugs.

She said it could be controlled and how would I feel about pilling him every day, so I explained he wasn`t my cat so it wasn`t really my decission to make. Sooo, I told the landlord what she said and he just said, "You can do that." You know I wouldn`t mind so much if I could keep him round the back and he is always moaning about the cost and how I`m a mug to keep paying the vets bills for Kitty and Maisie so i said I`d pay for Sooty too if he didn`t want to. No, he wants to pay. I can`t win.

When I said I didn`t think Sooty was happy up there he got all stressy and said I`m just trying to get into his psychi and he is happy

It is so frustrating!


**********

Ok, we`re back. They couldn`t get all the matts because he started waking up and they couldn`t sedate him more. They said they are not willing to sedate him again so I`m going to have to keep a closs eye on him and get him used to having his tummy done. The nurse said he is a very poorly boy even if he doesn`t look too bad and I got a copy of his blood results.

I`m not sure what will happen to him now :-(

oh i'm so sorry. you've been through so much with sooty and now this. it just doesn't seem fair.

sending tons of healing for the precious boy.
post #15 of 24
Oh, man. So this guy doesn't really care about the cat, but won't let you have him? Sheesh!

I wondered if he had some "dollface" Persian in him. Again, he's a stunner!
post #16 of 24
Darn, sounds like he's in real bad shape. I hope you can work something out for him. So horrible that some dumb human is standing between him and the good care he needs

It is really sad but I can`t find anyone to take him. When I asked at the vets before they said there was no point me putting an advert on their board because no one would want him because of his age. Now with kidney disease on top, well, it looks even bleaker. I think this guy is of the opinion that this woman can have him until he starts to get ill then he will be PTS.

Between me and some of the carers upstairs he will be looked after. We`ve already said we will have Sooty Patrols and I`ll go and groom him. I feel really bad for him but there`s only so much I can do.

Oh, poor Sooty... such a beautiful boy! And he looks like a happy kitty, too.

The vet is silly, though -- there's always a chance someone will fall in love and give him a safe home. Don't let him discourage you from trying.

Much love to Sooty!

Sooty is a darling and it does look like he has some Persian in him!
post #21 of 24
I think I'm in love! He's is too handsome for anyone NOT to want him... wait, I might be biased here. I'd take him in a second if I could.
