Hi I'm Sean Reiser, this is my Personal Blog
Anne and I adopted Frosty, out cat, from the Little Shelter in Hicksville, NY in February, 2018. He was found in a Starbucks parking lot and lived at the shelter for 6 or so months. We are unsure of how old he is, but he's definitely on the senior side of life.
From the moment we brought him home he was a "people cat". Once he was in the apartment, he hopped up on the couch, looking for love and attention, to this day he can be found on the couch or on the bed. He might have more than his fair share of health issues, but the love and companionship he gives us makes it all worth while.
He is cared for by Dr Sarah Granzin at the Bellerose Animal Hospital. We are greatful for the compassionate care she gives him.
You can find some stories and photos of Frosty below. Share and Enjoy!
We thought we had a problem on our hands with Frosty. He’s been here almost week and really hasn’t eaten… or so we thought. We’d put out his food, he’d pick at it but really not eat enough. We tried different foods, etc with no luck.
So the other day I’m walking past the hall linen closet and hear “crunch crunch crunch” coming from inside. I open the door and find Frosty on the floor eating. When our previous cat, Hammi, passed on we must’ve taken the bag of dry food we were feeding him and stored it on the floor of the closet with his other things. So Frosty clawed open the bag and had an all you can eat buffet in the closet. So we took the bag out of the closet and put it on the counter in the kitchen.
But that’s not all…
A few hours later I’m working late finishing a project and from the kitchen I hear “Bang, Crash, Boom” and when I look up there’s a white blur running out of the kitchen. This cat, which show no ability to jump, can obviously jump with proper motivation… food. The bag’s on the floor with a few other items from the counter.
Frosty getting acclimated to the apartment.
It really didn't take long. You know how they tell you to when introducing a cat to a new space that you should start with a small space and expand from there. Well, we put him in the bathroom, washed him down with a washcloth and gave him some time. We open the door a few minutes later to check on him, he bolts past us, jumps on the couch facing the TV, like "OK, what should we watch".
Easiest acclimation ever.
