Pet of the Week: Dusty, a gentle Siamese boy with pillowy-soft fur

Meet Dusty, a handsome, gentle boy who doesn’t let his arthritis stop him from playing all day and zooming down the stairs.

Here’s what Dusty’s friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about him:

Dusty is a handsome, Seal-Point Siamese boy who came to 4Paws after being surrendered to a shelter in southwestern Virginia, already declawed.

Dusty is a very affectionate boy, but he does prefer not being picked up. He really loves being brushed, and his super-soft fur is very enticing.

Dusty is also good with other cats and loves to engage with them. He enjoys running up and down stairs, often flying like superman down the last four. He is a curious fellow who likes to meet new people.

This gentle, playful and chatty young fellow would love to find a new home, where he can enjoy the good life. This sweet boy deserves a loving and patient adopter who will help him thrive.

Dusty has arthritis in his hips, so it’s important that he has a litter box with high sides because he doesn’t squat easily. Puppy pads will also help him if he sometimes “misses the target” of the litter box, which can be an unintended result of the trauma of declawing. Joint supplements help Dusty manage his arthritis and his physical condition has improved quite a bit since he has been in foster care with 4Paws.
