Pet of the Week: Thor and Czar, two cats whose owner died from COVID-19

Meet Thor O’Connell, a domestic short-hair definitely worthy of Mjölnir, and his long-haired companion, the benevolent Czar O’Connell.

Here’s what 4Paws Rescue Team has to say about Thor:

Thor and his bonder companion Czar arrived at 4Paws looking for their new forever home after their beloved Daddy recently died of COVID-19.

Thor is 7 years old. He is timid, but warms up after a while and loves to have his back and ears scratched. Thor loves to jump and chase wand toys.

Thor never interacted with dogs before and is not accustomed to being around children. He is vaccinated and neutered, will be microchipped before going to his forever home and tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia.

Please email us if you’re interested in adopting Thor and his bonded companion Czar. Be sure to include your phone number in your message. Please limit inquiries to the Greater Washington, DC area, except for barn cats.

According to the nonprofit, Czar is about 4 years old and “timid at first, but eventually becomes very friendly once he feels that his surroundings are safe. He loves to roll on his back and be combed.”

Like his buddy, Czar has not interacted with dogs before and isn’t used to being around children. He has also been vaccinated and neutered, will receive a microchip before going to a new home, and has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
