Just over a year ago Lawrence Longbottom’s life didn’t look so bright. He was wandering the streets of Sacramento and was a hot mess. He was taken to UCD for medical attention. The veterinary staff fell in love with him, and well that changed his life forever. UCD staff reached out to local shelters asking if they would take Lawrence Longbottom. Lawrence soon found his way to FieldHaven where he received the additional medical care he needed as well as a lot of love from FieldHaven staff and volunteers. Being a senior guy, Lawrence doesn’t race around the house chasing toy mice, instead he prefers to lounge on the couch with his person watching TV or sleeping at the food of the bed hoping to catch a glimpse of some birds flying by the window. Lawrence is the lap cat extraordinaire and is perfectly happy occupying a lap for the afternoon. If you are looking for a laid-back kitty companion and dedicated lap warmer please stop by and spend some time with Lawrence Longbottom. Just step into his room, put him on your lap and plan on staying for the day.
Lawrence is nine years old and FIV positively adoptable. His adoption fees are sponsored. Please visit this handsome boy at FieldHaven Feline Center, 2754 Ironwood Lane in Lincoln. Hours are Monday – Friday 10 AM – 5 PM (Tuesdays open until 6 PM) and Saturday noon – 5 PM. You can fill out an adoption survey on the FieldHaven website.
