Featured Pet: The Adventures of Don Juan


Fade in; a handsome, young cat frolics in a sunny field of wild flowers with a beautiful little calico. They’re having fun doing what cats do. Nearby is a large ginger cat who is ready to take over. A battle ensues and this time the young Don Juan wins out. Fade out.

Oh the adventures Don Juan must have had over the years! The battles for territory and the ladies. One such battle, either with an animal or a machine resulted in the loss of half his tail. That didn’t stop him. He continued his life style of fighting for and wooing the ladies.

One day his life style caught up with him. Food and water were scarce. He wasn’t strong enough to argue over territory and his once good looks were fading from numerous battle scars. Younger, stronger cats were catching the eyes of the ladies. He had given up. Too hard to go on. Fade out.

Fade in; a kind and caring person finds Don Juan, takes him in and nurses him back to health. To ensure that Don Juan doesn’t revert back to his previous life as a smooth operator he is “tutored”. Of course he’s also tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated and had some blood work done. Don Juan is pronounced healthy and ready to start life #2.

Don Juan hasn’t lost his ability to seduce he just applies it to a different crowd these days. His head butts, rolling over for tummy rubs and the loud purrs never fail to delight and people fall for it hook, line and sinker! Come meet him and see for yourself. Don Juan is estimated to be about 3-4 years old.

He can be visited at Verona Veterinary Medical Service in the Angel’s Wish adoption condo during the week and at Angel’s Wish in Verona on the weekends.
