Silver Main Coon needs a family ! Montreal area

A member here was nice enough to save a cat from euthanasia Nino is now ready to find his forever family. Montreal area but , we could find transport for the right/perfect family , in this province or Ontario.

Nino is 5 years old, FULLY DECLAWED, therefore is an indoor ONLY cat. He is a silver mixed Main Coon tabby and weighs in at 15 pounds. He is on CD Science Diet, due to crystals in his urine, from 2 years ago. He is timid at first with you, with some hissing and growling, but will come around and let you pet him. He DOES NOT like other cats and would be best as an ONLY cat.

What an absolutely gorgeous cat he is too! I would take him in a heartbeat if I thought he would get along with my other ones and I could sneak him past my hubby (not)! He is so handsome.
How is he with dogs? Would he do okay with one or two of them?

Well, I did the trellis thing again today and left out my 3 most mellow cats and put the rest in my sons room. There was lots of nose smelling and no hissing or growling at all from Nino. Good boy.
After a few minutes, he did swat out, but not in an aggressive way. I left the trellis up for about an hour and my cats, plus Nino, just went back to sleeping. Nino on my bed and the 3 cats in the hallway. So, I think that was a good start.

Oh pattymac, where do you live and when would you like to come and meet Nino???? HUH!!!! When!!!! LOL!!! Just joshin with ya, but if you are really interested, you can e-mail me at rg_girlca@yahoo.ca

Hi RG, I'm at work now but will drop you an email tomorrow. Sounds like he just needs a bit of time to adjust. Hehe, I even have 4 litterboxes set up. I'll talk to my Mom about him again, I think she fell in love the 2nd she saw his pictures.

He is stunning, I really hope he finds a home soon.
Mr.Floyd had crystals and stones and was at the vets for a week a couple months ago, I could not with a clear concience feed him the prescription diet they insisted he needed, raw has been working great for him and even his last urinalysis results were great.
I'm certain this boy will make someones dreams come true. He is gorgeous.

Same here , the boys had Uti's last year , then I put them on raw and never had that problem again. Unfortunately , with 4 kitties now and Chloe's condition , I don't have time for the raw thing anymore :sad: I do want to get them back on it though.

Chico2 , vet food is all corn base. It amazes me how expensive they are selling it , IMO , it's almost as bad as Pedigree but more $$$$.

I must admit that , when my goldens had many gastros in spring time, the Gastro food formula did work , but there are alternatives that I tried so I wont have to go back to the vet food. Same with cats with UTI's , the urinary SO formula does work. but it is still yucky food.
