This week’s featured feline is Bombay. We’re gonna give Jeannie the floor to tell us all about her special blue-eyed boy!
I adopted Bombay from the Cat Care Society shelter in Lakewood, Colorado 4 years ago, about 6 months after we lost a cat that was 19 and had diabetes for 3 1/2 years.
When I saw him, it was love at first sight! His big blue eyes got me right away! He got his name Bombay because his eyes are so blue, they look like the Bombay Sapphire, so it is fitting.
Bombay is 4 now, a lynx point Siamese and the most special cat in more ways than one. He has a rare condition where he has suffered bone loss and all cartilage in his legs. Besides being on several meds and supplements everyday, he gets acupuncture and laser treatments once per week. These have helped him keep his mobility and get around; he can’t run and jump like other cats, but he can get in his favorite spots and gets around much better than before he started. It has worked wonders for him!
Bombay has beds all around the house (he also gets breakfast in bed every morning since he can’t run around too much). He loves to nap in the sunshine and loves to go outside on the weekends with us and roll in the dirt and enjoy the fresh air. He loves Science Diet canned food, and playing with his catch-me-if-you-can toy and his feathers-on-the-stick toys.
