Eric was living in someones' garden with a few other cats, when the feeder noticed that he wasn’t eating and asked us for help.  

Our vet team discovered that Eric had really bad constipation, probably from years of being stray and eating whatever he could find.  Eric was nursed back to good health and now has a healthy appetite.

He does have a tendency towards constipation but this is really well managed with a diet of wet food only and a daily dose of lactulose. He will need to be monitored to make sure it doesn’t happen again.  

Eric has settled into shelter life and is slowly getting used to having close contact with kind people.  We can now stroke him while he is eating and he is starting to enjoy it.

He always knows when food time is and will be up at the front of his pen waiting for his food.  

When you go in with no food Eric seems very upset and will look at you until he does get his treat, then you can stroke him.   

He has lots of personality and should come around quickly in a new home with a devoted people.  

He will need someone who is used to shyer cats and who will understand that it might take him a while to blossom and enjoy living in a home again.

Eric is currently on lactulose and cisprid, these are both twice a day and we just put it into his food. He will need vet checks every couple of months to start with to make sure the medications are working and he isn’t getting constipated. It is important that if he is he will be able to be brought into the clinic for treatment.
