About Stanley

Age: Senior
Sex: Male

Bengal Rescue and Hope For Cats Inc. (both are 501c3 non-profit rescues) are teaming up to help Stanley! Stanley is a 12-year-old purebred Bengal cat who lost his home through no fault of his own. Stanley was purchased from a cattery when he was a kitten. His family absolutely adored him but he unfortunately ended up dealing with circumstances outside of his control and was extremely unhappy with sudden changes in the home. The family ended up taking in an elderly relative in need of care, and the relative brought their dog with them. Stanley had never been around dogs, and they quickly learned he wanted NO part of living in a home with a dog present. He soon began to urinate on the dog's possessions (he had never had this problem in the home before). Sadly - the family had to choose between Stanley and their relative and the dog companion - a very unenviable position. Stanley was out. Stanley was next surrendered to Buffalo NY SPCA; that's when Bengal Rescue partners teamed up to help get Stanley out of the shelter and to a safe local rescue - Hope For Cats Inc. He is now with the rescue - they are providing the time and patience to get to know him, and assess the type of home that would be best for Stanley. He is not having any litter box avoidance issues, whatsoever. Bengal Rescue has a lot of followers on the East Coast, so we have offered to help get Stanley posted so that we can network him and find the right family who will love him and care for him the rest of his days (which could be a lot of days given that many Bengals can live to be 20!). The SPCA ran a full bloodwork panel on Stanley; all was normal, including 2 kidney�%A0values (SDMA and BUN) and the 3rd kidney value (creatinine) was just a smidge over the upper limit.�%A0 The SPCA did not believe that a kidney diet was indicated, so the rescue has been feeding him regular food.�%A0Stanley is now enjoying a room of his own at the rescue, and has had no issues with using his litter box.�%A0 He has not been in the 'general population' at the rescue so they are not sure how he would be with other cats (although the door to his room has a screened opening so he has some contact with others). Stanley is super friendly with humans - he loves being pet and is a huge fan of tummy rubs. He was going to be put in a room with a couple of very nice cats but he hissed and swatted - it was too stressful for him. This is not at all unexpected, given that he spent his entire life as the only cat. The rescue will let him continue to decompress in his own space, while he works to adjust to his 'new normal.' It is unknown if there were children in his home.�%A0 Stanley is microchipped. Like most Bengals, he is quite vocal - but not loud. He is more 'conversational' than anything else. His cauliflower ear came with him and the Erie County SPCA vet noted in his medical records that ear should be watched/cleaned regularly.
