Sponsored by Animal Family Veterinary Care Center, Davenport, IA, 08/11 - 02/12
Beau went over the Rainbow Bridge on 11/8/17 due to complications following dental surgery.  We will miss his lovable, large presence immensely.  





Sex:                  Male, neutered

Date of Birth:    April, 2009

Arrived at
Witty Kitties:     August, 2011

Biography:         Beau belonged to a family, but he didn't get along with their kids, and they took him to a their vet to have him euthanized (after putting him through front declawing!).  Luckily, the vets were very kind-hearted, and thought Beau was an awesome cat who deserved another chance.  One of the employees volunteered to foster him while they looked for a home.  Since Beau was FIV+, they also contacted us and we put him on our waiting list.  And wait he did -- a couple months at least!  Finally we had a space, and Beau has settled right in.  He loves sitting on top of the haven in his room, looking out the window between cat naps.  He weighs over 18 pounds, so we hope he'll stop napping and take advantage of the new cat tree and shelf in his room to burn off a few calories!!  He's not crazy about being carried around (it's like carrying a sack of potatoes!!), but he LOVES to be petted and purrs up a storm.  Beau is also very comfortable with new people coming and going, and has not hid or run from any of his visitors.   He loves to lay on the floor with his belly exposed so that anyone who passes by will notice he's ready for a belly rub!   UPDATE 06/14:  Beau was adopted and lived with his new family for several months.  But then he developed diabetes, and his family brought him back to Witty Kitties.  Beau needs an insulin injection twice a day.  He doesn't even twitch, the needle is so small.  He also needs to eat dry food developed especially for cats with diabetes.  His glucose levels are well under control, and he's doing great!  He'd love to have a new family that has the time and resources to take care of him and give him all those belly rubs!
