Since we shared our longest-resident dog, let’s introduce our longest-resident cat. Meet Dino-Man, or Dino for short. Dino came to us as a stray in 2021. He’s a 4-year-old, big ball of fluff. Dino has the best personality a cat could have. He loves hanging out with his humans and getting all of the attention.

At first, he may seem timid, but he just needs to know you’re safe. He has been adopted three times in these past three years but is brought back each time because of urinating issues. The staff have been working so hard with him each day to figure out solutions. We have changed his food and litter, many times, and we think we finally found one that works for Dino.

His kennel has been clean for weeks now, with no accidents! Dino is searching for a human who will give him another chance, someone who will keep working with him so he can live a happy life in a home. If you’d like to meet Dino or if you would like to give him a chance, come to Responsible Pet Care to visit with him, and our other cats too.
