Keke’s former owners said they couldn’t handle his special requirements and surrendered him to our care.

Keke has what is known as Mega colon. He has difficulty processing food since it doesn’t go through his intestines properly. He needs a prescription diet and medications. He’ll have regular trips to the vet and possibly go through hospitalizations from time to time due to his condition. You can see that Keke has ‘clouding’ over one eye that doesn’t seem to be problematic at this time. At least he landed in the very place he needed to be: North Shore Animal League America’s Pet Sponsorship Program. Now he’s assured of the best possible medical care and a loving staff to tend to him and find his ideal home.

Keke may have more health challenges than most cats, but you wouldn’t know it from his disposition. “Keke is a happy, curious, friendly cat,” said mom Marybeth. “He loves to greet any visitors we have and enjoys being pet and brushed.” These days his favorite spot is sitting in the sun, whether by the screen door or windowsill, and keeping an eye on the birds and squirrels in the backyard. “We love having him as part of our family,” she added, “and we’re thankful for the care he gets from the Animal League America veterinary staff.”

Keke has wasted no time settling into his home and endearing himself to his entire family. Thankfully Keke’s health has been stable and he’s getting plenty of exercise as he explores his new space. An apparent ornithophile, Keke enjoys watching birds from the window, or even on TV. Mom, Marybeth, also reported, “He’s developed a special friendship with his human sister Cara, and often curls up on a beanbag chair in her room while she does her homework. Keke has brought us so much joy already, and we’re so lucky to have him!”
