    Hello everyone;

    I have posted about my Parker in the past. I was worried about when we move to be able to take him with us from our apartment to whenever we were to purchase a home.

    Well we did, and with God's help got Parker into the kennel with no stress (well on my part). Got him to the vet, he had an exam, shots and microchip.
    The vet told me that he weights 12lbs and is in good health and that the reason for the change in his color was because of him being malnourished. So since he has been cared for by my husband and I he is getting good food and his color changed.

    I got him to his room in our new home with food/water, litter box and toys (that he doesn't really care about).
    He is using the litter box, but I am not ready to let him out of the room yet.

    My husband and I are so glad he is with us, he is a precious boy.

    I forgot to write that the vet also said he is 6-7 years old.

    He sure is handsome!

    Have you tried spraying the toys with catnip spray?

    Gorgeous Parker! I’m so glad he is with you! I’ve had to move my kitties before too and I know it was stressful for all but as long as they have you, it will be fine. Love does amazing things and you onviisly love Parker. You’re right. He is precious! :)

    The vet said because before we started taking care of him it was malnutrition. I was amazed!

    He was a part of the colony of cays in our apartment complex for at least 6 year. We TNR him and he never left. He adopted us. ❤️❤️❤️
    But he must’ve been left by someone, years prior.

    He’s doing well. But we do notice a change in his temperament. I am sure it must be because of such a drastic change for him.

    He is a precious boy. I think he’s still adjusting, he’s not as relaxed as he was. But there was no option of leaving him behind. He’s not going anywhere. ❤️❤️❤️

    He is beautiful, looks like true Siamese now;). Once Parker gets settled, have the two of you considered adopting another cat? Parker originally came from a colony, he is used to living with other cats, maybe a playmate, companion cat would be something he would enjoy.

    [​IMG] Well, as I am writing he’s playing with his sister Gracie in the other room.
    They are both about the same age.
    Gracie I’ve had since newborn, she was found abandoned with the placenta still attached. Now she is almost 7yrs old. ❤️❤️
