After several weeks in care, Akito is ready to move on and find his new family.
This big boy was under medical care for some time due to a suspected upper respiratory infection.
When he arrived, he had gone straight to the vet and had bloodwork and urine taken which showed early kidney disease. Although he is a picky boy, an ideal diet for Akito would be a vet prescribed diet that helps aid his kidneys and keep them working as best they can.
He is looking for someone that can help him stay healthy along with his weight loss journey and get him back to feeling his absolute best!
Akito previously lived with a small dog and would likely be okay with another mild mannered cat, and would do best being indoor only.
He is very, very sweet and affectionate and would love to be your big cuddle bug.
