Notes: There truly isnít a sweeter boy than Moondoggie, a lap sitter and snuggler. While in a deep sleep you will hear his characteristic moan-like snore. This boy is the epitome of the Persian cat in demeanor, very laid back. He requires eye cleaning daily and combing every few days. Moondoggie was diagnosed with HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy-enlarged heart) at the age of six. He had only a slight enlargement of the heart at the time of diagnosis and did not yet require medication. When that time comes, he will likely be sustained on Atenolol for several years. Moondoggie belonged to my best friend who died suddenly on January 31, 2014. So he is a very special boy to me. Ideally I would like to find a home for him and his half sister, a black Persian spay named Cha Cha, as she was his housemate at my best friend's home. Both are back with me waiting for a new forever home. Cha Cha also has HCM but doesn't require medication yet. When she feels like it, she will offer kisses all over your face. Both cats are on a combination dry cat food consisting of Royal Canin Persian and Young Again 50/22. You can find out more about these foods on my web site. My reason for wishing to place Moondoggie and/or Cha Cha in a "no other pets home" is because stress will worsen HCM and can potentially shorten the life of a cat with it. If he is alone or with only his half sister, that will be the ideal situation, but depending on the circumstances, this may be reconsidered. He lived with his sister, four other cats, and a Scottish Terrier at my friend's home and showed no signs of stress, in fact sometimes slept with the dog. So having new animal housemates, depending on their temperament, might be OK for him. Cha Cha is a little more temperamental and may act out with urinary behavior if she doesn't like something about her environment. She exhibited this behavior at her previous home, but is not doing it since she has been here.

North Carolina

Photo Cat's registered name: Donegal's Luciano Pawfurotti
Cat's call name: Chano
Breed: Persian
Color: Cream Solid
Date of Birth (mm/dd/yy): 03/10/2011
Sex: Male; neutered
Pet or show quality? Pet
Registered with: CFA
Cat's location: Hampstead (near Wilmington), North Carolina
Will the breeder ship the cat? No
Home preferences: Adults-only household. Other cats OK; no dogs.
Homepage where cat can be seen: http://donegalhimalayans.com/handicats_available.html
Notes: Chano is a big boy who loves to jump for a toy. He also engages in an occasional game of chase with some of the other cats. He is not an alpha cat as he does bend to the wishes of some of my other cats, so that puts him lower on the totem pole. That means that he will probably adapt to an alpha cat as a housemate and take the subordinate position. Chano will sit on your lap and allow you to clean his eyes, which require daily cleaning. He will need his coat kept combed as he gets upset when mats are pulled. Chano was diagnosed with tachycardia, which means a rapid heart rate when stressed. He takes Atenolol 1/2 tablet per day and is very good about taking his pill. It is controlling his heart rate even when he is stressed with combing and/or jumping several times for a toy. He has not had rapid breathing while on his medicine. It is very inexpensive at about $20 for 60 tablets, which will last Chano four months, so roughly $5 per month.
