Stormy is a 2.5-year-old Flame Point Siamese. A few weeks ago, he went to the vet for a routine dental cleaning, and the vet noticed that he was having difficulty urinating. It turns out that he had some pretty painful bladder stones … poor guy.
But, Stormy is finally starting to feel better after having surgery to remove the bladder stones and getting his teeth cleaned, so he is all ready for a new home.
He needs to be on a special (but fairly low cost) diet, and he would prefer a home without kids. He is currently in his own large cage in the cat room, since he likes to have a space to call his own.
Stormy might seem a bit grumpy when you go in to sit with him, but he quickly warms up and lavishes the attention. And as you can tell by his photo, he obviously knows how to work the camera.
