Sylvester is a very nice, very large cat who was transferred to the sanctuary from the No. 5 Rd shelter at the end of May. A mellow kind of guy, he took the transfer easily in stride, approaching his new quarters in the Gericatrics (aka Kitten Trailer) with little more than a blink and a sniff before settling right in.
“How large is very large?” you may ask. Try 20lb large. Ann first described him to me via a comparison to Mario, her preferred measuring stick for largish kitties. According to a scale of small to Mario-size, Sylvester apparently comes in at “cat who ate Mario.”
… not that Sylvester seems the type to do this sort of thing literally. The 13 year old’s fault, if any, is that he has a tendency to poop outside the box.
