Meet Booger Roux.

Booger Roux is a special needs cat we found during a hot summer day on our back deck very malnourished and only weighing a total of 8 ounces. He has overcome many obstacles since that day in July 2014.
Our Vet believes he was deprived of nutrition while in his mother's womb because she was malnourished. She was a stray in our then neighborhood and we eventually trapped her and had her vetted. She and Booger Roux were reunited in 2015.
While Booger Roux is very energetic he does have some issues such as he cannot meow like a normal cat and he also needs extra comfort and calming and requires a Thunder shirt sometimes, especially at night.
People need to understand just because a pet looks different doesn't mean they can't be a good pet. In my 20 years of being a pet mom, Booger Roux has been a very affectionate and loving pet who brings great therapy to me and my husband.
This page was created in September 2019 to bring awareness to disabled felines and to help educate and inspire others to find better homes for pets with special needs.
Booger Roux is now featured in a 2-page layout in the Jan/Feb 2021 issue of Catster Magazine that is published in the USA and the UK.
Here is another link for the online digital magazine called Cattitude Daily that recently featured Booger Roux. (November 30, 2020) **

 

You can find Booger Roux on MeWe, FaceBook , Instagram & YouTube.

Thanks for visiting :)

 

He was diagnosed with having “down syndrome-like” features at a young age by our vet and that is why he looks different than a normal cat. He is a great source of therapy for both me and my husband who is disabled. I just want people to understand just because a pet looks different that doesn’t mean they can’t be a good pet. Booger Roux has been a very affectionate and loving cat to us.  He has brought much joy to us and I believe that was because of a higher power.
