Big Daddy   

ID: 409872 


Big Daddy lives up to his name! This big, beautiful black medium-hair cat is eight-years-old. He first came to the BC SPCA as a stray and although he was quickly adopted, he was returned because he was too vocal when his guardians were away from home.

Recent tests have shown that Big Daddy has hyperthyroidism, which is manageable and treatable with daily medication (a monthly cost of $45.00) and regular blood work to ensure proper dosage. The condition may also be the reason for his meowing: vocalization is often a side effect of untreated hyperthyroidism. It may also explain his neediness.

Having gained twice his weight, Big Daddy is now Huge Daddy! His new guardians need to be willing to help him shed some of this excess weight, possibly with some safe outdoor access or on-leash walks for exercise.

Big Daddy loves a good petting session, but prefers having four feet on the floor. Big Daddy may not be a lap cat, but he loves companionship like hanging out while you read, watch TV and run around the house. This handsome man also loves sunbeams and comfy beds.

So if Big Daddy sounds like the companion for you, please contact the BC SPCA Burnaby Branch at (604) 291-7201 or . To view more adoptable animals, please visit the BC SPCA Pet Search site.
