Meet the newest member of our family, Derek! After fostering this handsome cat for a few months, he's now officially Norman's brother... and they're already a dynamic duo!
We first met Derek in early November when Norman had an appointment at the vet. Derek had some health issues and had been surrendered by his previous owner. He’d been living in a cage for months. He was 8 years old and full of anxiety. Notice he licked all the fur off his little legs!
Something about him touched our hearts… he seemed like the sweetest thing… and he seemed to like Norman...so we brought him home to foster the week of Thanksgiving.
Norman was super-excited to have a playmate… but Derek spent the first few weeks upstairs, hiding and a little unsure. We did everything we could to make him comfortable. But more than a month in, his anxiety issues were getting worse and he started marking his territory in our house. We were heartbroken and thought we had failed him. But Christmas was coming and we couldn’t bear the thought of him going back to life in a cage. So we gave him one last shot. A few friends recommended a kitty calming spray… and it actually worked!
Now... it seems like Derek, or as we call him Derek Jeter or Deuteronomy, had been part of our family forever! He loves Norman! They nap together...they beg together.... and Derek loves to watch TV!
He is loving, affectionate and funny! It's a perfect fit!
