Luigi has been adopted by a wonderful family in NC!
We welcome baby Luigi to the rescue, he is only 8 months old. Luigi was purchased by a young couple as a healthy, happy pup. Unfortunately, during a vet visit, he was discovered to have a cleft palate, something that was never disclosed by the “breeder”. Faced with the possibility of major surgical bills to correct this issue, they gave Luigi to a family friend who was more than willing to take care of Luigi’s problems if they ever arose. BUT, Luigi is a young boy who only wants to have fun and is a playing machine. The two senior cats in his new home didn’t seem to enjoy Luigi’s playfulness as much as he thought and were beginning to suffer health issues related to anxiety.
Luigi was surrendered to GEBR for treatment if necessary and ultimately, adoption.
Even though Luigi has a cleft palate, it doesn’t extend to his face. He is able to eat solid food well and drinks from a Licks It attached to his crate.
He is UTD on shots but is not neutered. He will undergo evaluation of the palate and if recommended, have it surgically corrected. At that time, he will be neutered.
July 27, 2021 – Luigi crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Please keep his family in your thoughts.
Rest In Peace Luigi
