Hi, I adopted Oreo at 4 months from The SPCA .I just happened to be looking at the Adoptable Pets .I would always look but, not looking to adopt at the time. I saw Oreo's profile. Without hesitation I applied. Never a doubt. Oreo had damaged eyes which were removed at 2 months. His story broke my heart and, I knew I would be a good Pet Parent match for him. I have a little den next to my kitchen in my Apartment. I went shopping and set that up for Oreo with pressure gates in the doorway and a swing gate and, everything he would need. This is his safe room for when I am at work. He has the run. I introduced all rooms one at a time until he knew his way around .I even padded doorways so that they were soft. He has an automatic sweeping litter box which he has used from day 1. As an afterthought I kind of thought that being blind may cause fear of it but, it has been good! He fetches toys and, brings them back to your hand. So normal in many ways. It will be 2 years since I brought him home on November 11th. He had his second Birthday on July 21st. He is so special and, I love him so much. So glad that I could give him the home and, love that he deserves:yummy:

Thank you so much. Oreo is wonderful. Don't know what made me go to the SPCA Website that day. Wasn't looking to adopt a pet at the time but, when I saw this Guy I knew that He was meant to be with me ♥
